    Following rounds at Tamworth and the Longyard over Monday and Tuesday, yesterday was an official rest day.

    The tournament will pick up today with another individual stableford at the Longyard, which will finalise the 54-hole Country Challenge.

    The 36-hole NSW Vets Shield was decided following Tuesday’s individual stableford at the Longyard.

    Tamworth’s Brian Cox was the overall winner with 79pts.

    Gosford’s Warwick Gorringe finished second with 77pts and Hervey Bay’s Bob Visentin another three points back in third.

    The Longyard’s Joan McGhie won the ladies NSW Vets Shield with 75pts from Nolene Chaffey (Tamworth) on 66pts and Kew’s Yvonne Burnett on 65.

    Chaffey’s cause was helped by a 38 (pts) to win the Longyard round.

    The Grange’s Richard Searle was the men’s winner – on countback – with 42pts.

    Arthur Rutley, one of the tournament organisers, said it had been a good couple of days golfing.

    “We’ve been very lucky with the weather,” he said.

    “Not like last year.”

    Last year rain washed out the first day.
