Burra Men’s Open – Thomo Fails to Finish

Numbers were down due to the clash with Mother’s Day, but those that did attend enjoyed perfect conditions. Some concern is held for the well being of colourful local identity, Philip “Thomo” Thomson who was forced to retire hurt after 18 holes.

  1. Great Day the course was a credit to all who helped prepare it, thanks to Bob Taylor and Eddie for the day. I hope next year will see a bigger field.

  2. Hey just thought I should let you know in the B grade photo the person on the right is Andrew Rac not Brooke Burton Cheers Andrew
