Lewis Gebert and Jenny McRae are in prime position to claim the men’s and women’s A Grade Horsham Golf Club championships respectively after two rounds of play.
Gebert leads the men’s A Grade by six shots with a score of 144, with Casey Schmidt, Jeremy Schmidt and last year’s runner-up Nick Thomson tied for second on 150.
Gebert shot an outstanding second-round 68 at the weekend to take a commanding lead.
Horsham Golf Club men’s captain Peter Jackson said the standard of golf had been high, with some excellent scores in round two and only nine shots separating the top seven players.
McRae looks comfortably on track to continue her dominance of the women’s A Grade championship, with a first-round 79 helping her to a five-shot lead over Tracey Hobbs.
Hobbs is the only woman within 10 strokes of McRae, with third-placed June Crabtree, 173, 11 shots behind the leader.
Results of the women’s third round were not available before The Weekly Advertiser went to press yesterday.
The women’s championship will conclude tomorrow with the fourth and final round.
In the men’s intermediate section Aaron Maddin, 166, leads by one shot from Simon Hobbs.
