SIXTEEN-year-old Kate Law from Maryborough outshone her opposition with flawless ball striking to win the Bundaberg Ladies Open Championships with 77, three strokes ahead of her nearest rival Kathy Nelson from Bargara on Sunday.

Kay Tischler, after the benefit of a week's golfing on Norfolk, won on a countback from Jessica Williams (Bargara) for the B1 gross and Marion Mobbs, also on that trip, finished better on the final nine than Karen Thompson to win B2 with 102.

One had to be careful looking skywards on Saturday as one eagle is rare but two were scored on the 12th hole.

Dave Cartwright had no need to putt to get his in and Bryce Pereka's effort most certainly helped him to get his 68 but it was not quite good enough to get him the medal shirt as Peter Zandona, in the last group home, had a better last nine to win on a countback. …
