Crowie & Craw Win Rex Johnston Open Men's Pairs 2017

Crowie & Craw Win Rex Johnston Open Mens Pairs
Rody Manning & Steven Maas, Tuesday, 6 June 2017

Belrose has hosted another successful Rex Johnston Open Men’s Pairs tournament in 2017. Representatives from 21 clubs entered and the weather was very kind to us with plenty of sunshine and no rain. The greens were all running well and full marks go to our green keeping staff, Joey and Liz, for preparing them (Joey had a vested interest as he was also playing in the tournament). We had a full field of 42 teams and judging by the feedback, everyone had a great time.

Play on day 1 sorted out the field into three sections and on day 2 the section winners and places were hotly contested.  It was a nail-biting competition in the Section A contest with teams from Harbord, Belrose and North Sydney all in the race until the very last few ends of the 4th game.  A drawn 4th match ruined the hopes of Harbord’s Terry Warder while a strong finish saw Belrose’s Crawford Linton win line honours. Congratulations to all the teams.

The overall placings in the 3 sections were:

Section A:

Winner – Sean Crowe-Maxwell, Crawford Linton (s) - Belrose

Second place – Tony Taylor, Mark Alexander (s) - Belrose

Third place – Steve Smith, Terry Warder (s) - Harbord

Section B:

Winner – Jim Gallagher, Shane Clarke (s) – Mt Lewis

Second place – Michael Breunis, Forest Craig (s) – Harbord

Third place – StuartMcLeod, Steve Clark (s) – Mona Vale

Section C:

Winner – Steve Coleman, Greg Growden (s) – North Sydney

Second place – Drew Wheeler, Paul Somers (s) – Dee Why

Third place – Ian Ossher, Hank Sato (s) – Double Bay/Harbord

Many thanks to all the volunteers who worked hard to make the tournament such a success.
