Peter Davies is the new Club Champion of the Tuross Head Men’s Bowling Club after a close win over John Fahey in the final of the Major Singles Championship.
The match was played in beautiful weather but both players found the green particularly tricky on one hand. Davies started well and gradually built up a good lead. At 19 – 10 he looked well on the way to victory. But the very competitive Fahey wasn’t ready to throw in the towel.
Fahey gradually chipped away at the lead and managed to win 8 of the next 13 ends to tie the scores up at 25 all and set up an exciting finish.
The next four ends were telling with Fahey setting up the head only to see Davies play outstanding bowls to grab the shot. Fahey picked up another two shots to trail 30 -27. On the next end Fahey again held the ascendancy only to see Davies trail the jack with his last bowl to run out a 31 – 27 winner.
The final was a great spectacle for the crowd in attendance. In the end it was Davies’ consistency and ability to play the extra special bowl, when needed, that won him the day. Fahey was by no means disgraced producing some excellent bowls that really made Davies battle for the win. Congratulations to both players.

Michael Kennedy won his first round match but lost in round 2. Joe Cremona had a bye in round 1 but recorded a good win in round 2 and will now play in the quarter finals on Saturday June 17.
A big thanks to all of the local members who assisted in the running of the event. We supplied 9 markers, 2 umpires and the controlling body. Again our Bowls Organiser Andrew Farrington did a great job in organising the event.
