“I was on a great pace at about 1hr 40min per round, but just couldn’t hold on to the club anymore so was forced to stop,” he said.

“It was a great day on the links though, with perfect weather, and great support from staff and members at Fairwinds. Now it’s time to heal up and get ready for next year!”
