DANNY Morton saw off a near 150-strong field to take the plaudits at Lismore Workers Golf Club on Saturday.

The Goonellabah player was in good form as he racked up the best score of the day (47 points) to capture B-grade honours in the 18-hole stableford competition.

He kept his cool under baking conditions at the Barham St course to finish as the day's top performer.

"It was a really good score," club professional Peter Jaeger said.

"The course is playing really well at the moment. It's in good nick.

"Danny played some really good golf and it was an excellent round."

Bruce Crowther was next back in the section on 41 points.

Brett Forrester won the A-grade event with 42 points, with Peter Fiore (41) second.

Tim Jenkins took C grade with a commendable score of 46 points. Runner-up John Vantaggiato was five points adrift.

A total of 145 players took part in the event.

Forthcoming tournaments on the region's calendar include this Friday's Corn on the Cob Day at Coraki Golf Club and the Summercraft Cup at Mullumbimby Golf Club on Saturday, January 18.

Woodburn-Evans Head Golf Club is also hosting an invitation day on Saturday, January 11.
