While the majority of the big field struggled in the strong winds during the Lithgow Golf Club's Saturday (September 18) stableford event, low marker Steve Hall was carving out an exceptional three under par 69.
Since his early teens playing with his parents Ted and Noelene, Hall has been a natural talent and has maintained his high standard of excellence through to his 50s winning just about every big event on the golfing calendar.
Playing off a handicap of one, Hall amassed a stableford score of 40 points that included an eagle two on the 17th hole.
However, it wasn't the only eagle recorded on the day.
