Claney, Harley, champions at Cranbourne
by Golf Australia
Gordon Claney and Heather Harley have been crowned 2020 Cranbourne Senior Amateur champions.
Claney trailed by two after day one but a one-under par 71 saw him salute for the third time in four years at the event.
The Kingston Heath member produced a flawless front nine of 33 which included three birdies.
He would stay steady around the back to finish with a two-over par 146 total for the two rounds.
Runner-up to Claney was The National’s Simon Bracegirdle with rounds of 77-71 for a 148 total.
Kevin Naimsith would finish in third place after his consistent rounds of 75-74.
The men’s net saw Commonwealth’s David Taylor win narrowly on a countback from local member Brett Westmoreland. The pair finished on 142 for the two rounds but it was Taylor’s final round of 67 which proved the difference.
In the women’s scratch stableford event, Heather Harley was the 2020 champion after scores of 25-19.
Runner-up to Harley by just one shot behind was Melinda Crawford on 43.
Crawford would not go home empty handed as she took out the overall stableford for the women.
Players were impressed with the condition of the course and the excellent hospitality provided by the club.
The senior tour continues to Ballarat and Midlands Golf Clubs next week for the Eureka Senior Amateur.
