This was enough to secure him the trophy, edging ahead of William Oliver and Graham Jacklin, both on 42.

In the following day’s Captain’s Mixed Team competition, Dave Varney, Bruce Wong, Mick Slowey and Christine Goldsbrough held their nerve to post an imposing 91 points and take home the silverware.

Runners-up were T. Gladwell, J. Beverley, T. Stobart and B. Wright, with 88 points, while R. Bevan, R. Oliver, H. Dawson and A. Oliver took third place on countback.

* Allison Cook could clearly stand the heat as she fired a blistering 40 points to win the Ladies’ Swan Trophy Silver Division.
