ANOTHER exciting finish decided the outcome of this years Lady Captain's Shoot-out at Heydon Grange.
With 10 players starting the competition, a mixture of luck and good fortune saw last years skipper, Elaine Knobel-Forbes, pitted against the incumbent Roz McKenzie at the ninth hole.
Both players halved the hole at the first attempt and so they retuned to the 100 yard marker for the decider.
With Knobel-Forbes leaving her ball to the left of the green, McKenzie looked defeated as her ball spun off the green and found the lake on the right.

A rare error from too much caution saw Knobel-Forbes' approach to the flag still nine feet short.
Following a drop into a difficult lie, McKenzie appeared to have over-hit her shot as the ball flew from its resting place beside the lake on a trajectory destined to clear the green, had the flag pole not intervened; onlookers watched in amazement has the ball dropped like a stone into the awaiting hole.
