Yamba Major Pairs and Triples Championship finals

On Saturday afternoon, in a rare turn of events, the club hosted the Major Pairs and Triples Championship finals concurrently.

The pairs featured a clash between the duo of Greg Dickman and Terry Johnson up against the well credentialed pairing of Col Lindsay and Graham Meany. While the triples provided the opportunity for two newly formed teams to display their combined talents when Jake McHutchison, Jim Johnson and Trevor Bardsley took on Dave Atkinson, Bob Ballantyne and John Deale. The finals were played under great circumstances, on typically well-presented greens and under brilliant paradise-like weather conditions.  

The pairs battle was a typical final and after 12 ends of lively and competitive action, Graham and Col held a slender two shot advantage when leading 16 to 14. The sides traded mutual fours on the next two ends before Col and Graham again gathered some control over the scoreboard. Ultimately, after 21 ends of enthralling pairs competition played at a very high level, it was Col Lindsay and Graham Meany who had the final say over Greg Dickman and Terry Johnson by 29 shots to 25.
