Stollmeyer still leads

The field has it all to do today.
Despite having his worst score, Scott Stollmeyer managed to maintain his 11-stroke advantage in the men’s championship flight heading into today’s final round of the Garfield Sobers Golf Championships at Durants.
Playing at Sandy Lane yesterday, the man who led the competition from the opening day appeared to stumble somewhat, having recorded an eight-over 80 in a fairly difficult third round.
But only four players, including Wayne Baptiste (78), managed to score in the 70s as the entire 23-man field struggled to cope with the switch of courses from Apes Hill to Sandy Lane.
Baptiste moved into second ahead of Carson Leacock, who fell down the field into seventh and 16 shots back of Stollmeyer after hitting an 85, while Marcus Clarke moved back up the field into third following his 79.
Elvis Medford also had a decent showing on the day after hitting a 77 to move into eighth overall.
Stollmeyer’s wife, Rae, extended her lead in the ladies’ championship over Mavi Virgo (76) from four shots to ten following an impressive third-round score of 70.
Rae’s mother, Lyn deCambra McCleod, and defending champ Helen Foster dropped a further 19 and 20 shots off the pace, respectively. (JM)
