Nathan Schneider (Beechworth GC) and Vaughan Saunders (Thurgoona GC) have claimed the 2023 NSW Sand Greens Fourball Championship at Holbrook Golf Club.
The pair finished the two-round event with 79 gross stableford points, six clear of Griffith’s Matt Staines and Josh Stapleton. In third place, another point back was Nyngan’s Anthony Ah-see and David Rose.
Schneider and Saunders combined well. Over the two rounds, the pair had seven birdies and two eagles. The win is their first in a Fourball competition together.
Schneider was thrilled with his victory after being pipped at the post in last year’s Singles Sand Greens Championship.
It was a tight affair in the nett division with Jason Saunders & Nick Arokiaswamy of Binalong pipping Holbrook locals Phil & Shane Spokes on a countback after the two teams finished locked on 91 stableford points. They were just one point clear of Eric Preston and Oscar Knight of Binalong, with another pair of locals, Mark Lowry and Michael Smith, in fourth.
