An excellent round of 87-18-67 consisting of some solid ball striking and only 23 putts allowed Price to take the win by a comfortable four strokes.

The welcome, but badly timed rain on Thursday meant that play had to be abandoned in the Gwen Stammers Tournament.
The members and visiting women started out in the rain, but as it just got heavier it eventually created an unplayable course, so the players just had to enjoy a nice lunch with no results.
The event will be rescheduled to Thursday, December 7 and hopefully the weather will be kinder this time.
