The final of the Men’s Fours championship was held today and despite the weather forecast we had rain 30 mins before play. Peter Tonoli, Tim Walton, Laurie Wilson and Chris Wood were up against Wilson Cheng, Fred Alexander, Chris Carey and Rod Silber.
A strong southerly and a green that kept changing pace was proving difficult for all. The game was tight until the 10th end when Team Silber picked up a 4. From then on they were gaining singles with great draw bowling from Rod. In the end it was a convincing win by Team Silber 23-9. Well done Team Wood, you played some great shots and had some unlucky rubs.
Some stats: Alexander, Carey and Silber have won this event 5 times together (4 in a row), Fred leads the 4’s championships with 13, Chris today passed his father's record of 7 (Dick Carey) to make his count 8 coming in second on the leader board and Rod comes in fourth with 5 on the leader board.
