Avon Valley golfers Bill Chipman and Chris McCarthy recently tied for third place at the Nova Scotia Golf Association’s Four-Ball Championship at the Clare Golf and Country Club.
The pair shot a 140 over two days, missing being tied for the championship by three strokes while finishing only one shot out of second.
Chipman and McCarthy did capture first division net honours, while Wayne Sutherland and Kevin Boutlier placed third.
Wayne Northup and Robert MacPherson paired up in Clare and no doubt would have liked to have their first round back. They shot bogeys on the third, fifth, seventh and 14th holes, a double bogey on the 12th but managed to lower their score with eagles on the second, 16th and 18th holes. The second round was much easier for them as they shot only three bogeys, parring the remainder of their round. Northup and Macpherson ended up tying for 17th place.
Sutherland and Boutlier, from Avon Valley, had to settle for a tie for 42nd place as they shot nine bogeys, a double-bogey and came back a little with two eagles for a two-day score of 160, shooting 80 each day.
