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.
