Bell?s chiming after win

NOBODY was more surprised than Kate Bell when she lifted the Rockhampton Ladies Open Championship title yesterday.

The Miriam Vale golfer overcame a self-confessed form slump to post a thrilling three-shot victory.

"I've been playing so badly lately,'' Bell said.

"No-one was more stunned then I am.''

Bell capitalised on perfect conditions at the Rockhampton Golf Club yesterday to fire a title-winning round of 84, which included three birdies.

Emu Park's Raelee Oates finished runner-up with a round of 87.

"The course was just beautiful,'' Bell said.

In B-grade, Rockhampton's Judy Lindsay (93) edged out fellow Rockhampton player Ivy Casey (95).

Gracemere's Nola Taylor (108) took out C-grade honours over BITS player Kris Sanderson (111).

The Rockhampton Men's Open Championships swing into action today and tomorrow.

Rockhampton's Lewis Clelland is the defending champion.

The club's four-ball mixed event then takes centre stage on Monday.
