Proudfoot impressive in equalling record

An outstanding round of golf on Saturday has seen Tegan Proudfoot equal the long-standing Queens Park course record.

The talented golfer recorded a very impressive 63, equalling a course record set more than three decades ago.

The official record of 63 was achieved by John Vear on 18 August, 1979. Since then it has only been equalled one other time - on 24 May 1986 by Michael Lucas.

With a course par of 71, this is a huge effort from Tegan and hopefully a sign of some more good form to come in 2014.

★★★ Four of Southland's top female golfers will head to the St Clair Golf Club in Dunedin this weekend, to contest the South Island Strokeplay Championships.

Fiona Murray, Helen Baird, Olivia Frost and Danielle Price have all taken the opportunity to contest the championships.

Robyn Boniface will fly the Southland flag the following week, in the New Zealand Women's Seniors tournament, which is being played at Springfield Golf Club in Rotorua.

We wish all five golfers the best.

★★★ The Eastern Southland District Championship was played over the weekend. Robyn Boniface (Queens Park) was the winner of the silver division, while Dale Logan (Gore) won the bronze division.

★★★ There is plenty of golf coming up on the local calendar.

The DB ILT Liqourland Charity tournament is on today at Queens Park, the Drummond Ladies 0-40.4 tournament is on tomorrow, the Gore Golf Club fundraiser - a four-person ambrose tournament - is on Friday.

There is an open stroke tournament at Hedgehope on Sunday and the Otautau Ladies 0-54 tournament is on Monday.
