Golf siblings get in the swing

GOLF: Grafton golf siblings Courtney, Nick and Hollie Fuller have fallen right into the swing of things this month with solid results at the Coraki Junior Open.

A total of five Grafton Juniors and one ex-junior competed on Sunday, and dad Jeff Fuller said the course was in good condition after being ripped apart by storms three weeks earlier.

"There was preferred lies through the green and a gusty strong breeze blowing all day which didn't seem to help scoring," he said.

"As I said to them in the car on the way up, if we don't come away with anything that's okay because we're out there playing a game of golf."

Despite this, the trio went home with a number of trophies.

Hollie maintained her dominance in the 9-hole cadet section - which she took out last year - with 53 hits, 34 nett, good enough by seven shots.

"She was up against Maddison Mckee, who had an outstanding net score of 26 netg and won the girls net prize," Mr Fuller said.

"Her sister Annalise competed in the five hole section and came third."

Nick Fuller got nearest the pin on the third hole and managed a 72 nett score off an eight handicap, while eldest sibling Courtney Fuller took the nearest the pin trophy on the 6th hole and longest drive on the 9th.

"A highlight for Courtney was playing alongside a three handicapper competitor Eleka Moore from Ballina and frequently out driving her," Mr Fuller said.

Ex-Grafton junior Kayne Endean also won a B grade trophy for his 74 net result.
