Spring Fever

by peter jaeger

THE Lismore ladies will hold their prestigious Spring Tournament next week.

The tournament has become one of the major and most popular on the Northern Rivers.

This year is no different, with players coming from as far afield as Brisbane, Coffs Harbour, Glen Innes and Tenterfield.

There will be a four-ball on Tuesday, with the stroke event on Wednesday.

Lismore's Emily Gray will be hot favourite to win the stroke following her good form at Ocean Shores. Emily had 74 hits and even left some out there.

The organising committee has done a tremendous job in attracting more than 300 ladies, who will compete for a magnificent array of trophies.

I will report on some of the happenings next week.

Michelle watch

CASINO's Michelle Ellis returned to form in the State Farm on the LPGA tour last week.

Michelle has struggled to find her form of last year for different reasons and needed a strong finish in the last four events to maintain her card.

She started slowly to be four-over after 10 in the first round, but then had three birdies to finish at one-over. The next three rounds were 69, 68 and 70 to finish 20th.

Michelle jumped a few spots to help ease some pressure on the money list.

She is feeling very relaxed and is looking forward to finishing a frustrating year strongly.
