Mum and daughter act

By TONY WHITE twhite@dailyexaminer.com.au

MOTHER and daughter, local legend Jean Dahl and Sue Reguson, head the field after the opening round of the Ladies May Tournament at Grafton District Golf Club yesterday.

Reguson from Murwillumbah, who plays off an eight handicap, leads the field after a 77, one shot ahead of 'mum', nine handicapper, 'Amazing' Jean.

The pair have a five and four shot buffer over the nearest competitor going into today's final 18-hole round.

Dahl, a 13-time winner of the prestigious event, was in a relaxed mood last night.

"I'm not even tired," she said. "When you play well you don't get tired unlike Wednesday when I played badly and was buggered. I think the situation is very exciting.

"It would be lovely to keep it (the title) in the family but you never know, someone could sneak up from behind and beat us both.

"We've never been in this situation (leading the tournament). We'll both wish each other luck in the morning and go out and do our best. I think Sue will do me. She's younger than me and hits the ball a hundred miles."

Elaine Shand from Grafton (30 handicap) and Lismore's Jean O'Brien (34) lead the nett event after a first round 66.
