Nearly 120 take part in Lismore Veterans Golf Day at Workers

GREENKEEPERS everywhere, relax - Lance Ryan will not be wreaking havoc on the courses anytime soon.

The home player was among almost 120 participants enjoying the Lismore Veterans Golf Open Day.

Ryan said he was having an enjoyable time at Tuesday's event, although he was unhappy with his "terrible" putting.

A golfer for about 40 years, Ryan, who plays off a handicap of 20, said he always kept a cool head no matter how many putts slipped by.

"I know players who throw their clubs (in frustration), but I never get like that," he said.

"I don't worry about my game. I'm just here for a friendly game and exercise. Events like this are great. They are enjoyable day with friends."

There was some excellent play at the event, which attracted players from across the region and is one of the open days included on the veteran players' circuit.

Home players shone, taking out most of the top places.

Lionel Anderson led the way, finishing top dog on 41 points.

Bob Kay (40) was second on a countback ahead of Ray Evans, Tony Palmer, Ray Childs and Art Beavis.
