Round three of the Battlescares golf tournament was played last Sunday and luckily the weather held out until after everyone had finished. Fifty-one players turned out to play the Greens Beach Golf Course and there were some great scores.
Daniel Templeton won round three with 41 points from Jack Love who scored 39 on his home course, and Geoff Johnstone from Longford got his second 3rd place of the tournament also on 39. The lowest scores of the day went to Matthew Hipwood from Mowbray and previous leader Zac Williams from Penguin with 20 points each.
The overall leader after three rounds is now Geoff Johnstone on 109 points with Jack Love in second place on 105 points with Daniel Templeton in third place on 104 points. These positions can all change at Quamby on September 1st with players able to drop their worst round. It will be interesting to see the effect on the final leader board.
Daniel Templeton the Greens Beach winner.

His first eagle came at the 305 meters 3rd hole after driving onto the first fairway, he then promptly played his second shot into the hole on the third green. He then drove the green on the 327 meter 8th hole following up with a successful short put for another eagle two. On the 425-meter par 5, 9th hole. Craig was on the green for two, narrowly missing a gettable putt (according to his playing partners) for what would have been his third eagle of the day. As a result, he cleaned out the eagle’s nest.
