KEVIN Power had to fight his way through a field of 18 players to claim Heydon Grange's Vice Captain's Charity Shoot Out.

The knockout style competition proved a nerve-wracking format for the competitors. With two players being knocked out on every hole the pressure was on from the start.

The ninth hole saw the two survivors from two groups, Power and Mark Robertson, who played some spectacular golf throughout.

On the final hole, Power hit a blistering tee shot, and with a well-placed second shot was in a position to reach the green in three.

Robertson, however, had to overcome a difficult third shot with his path blocked by a tree.

Power then hit a majestic wedge to within eight feet of the pin, with two putts needed to secure the victory.

At the same time as the men's shootout, the Ladies Captain Shootout was also taking place, with Margaret Bell the eventual winner.

While those around her missed shots and skewed their drives, Bell, who was making only her second appearance in the competition, kept her cool with her steady play seeing her safely home and outwitting the experienced Jean Black.
