27 May FASTWAY COURIERS Better-ball Medal

The second of this monthly series of events was won on a far higher score than the first. Both Wim Pelser and Isak Pieters, as well as the combination of Kobus Bester and Dries Lategan finished on 64 nett. A count-out was necessary to split this tie. The Lategan / Bester combination were easy winners of the count-out, and were awarded the crystal glassware.
