He had another three-point birdie at the 13th and three-point pars at the first, third, fourth and eighth as well as two-point pars at the second, fifth and 14th.

Playing off 17 Shekelton also had an eagle at the 10th which earned him five points and he added four-point pars at the seventh and 11th as well as three-point pars at the fifth, ninth, 12th, 13th and 14th and a three-point bogey at the fourth.

In the Precision Cables Winter League Coburn’s 38pts ensured Team Robin was the top scoring team in Week 4 with 132pts but on a weekend of hot scoring they were unable to make any progress up the table and remain second from bottom heading into the final two weeks.
Team Falcon, captained by Ray Pepper, jumped into fourth place with Ciaran Corbett their top performer with a credible 33pts.
However, Team Raven maintained their position on top of the table for the fourth consecutive week with four of their team contributing 30pts plus to their cause while David Brennan was their top scorer with 32pts.
With two rounds to go there is still a lot to play for as only 20pts separate first to fifth place on the table.
