Lester tops Bester as Turley overcomes injury to progress


Despite a foot injury leaving him barely able to walk this morning, former Commonwealth Games gold medallist Wayne Turley soldiered through his Broadbeach encounters and fought his way into the knockout fixtures. Wayne overcame a difficult section, downing Warilla youngster Greg Jeans in a tight tussle in his second round match before rounding off a perfect day by winning his third round match.

In a clash of the heavyweights, Australian Jackaroo Barrie Lester started off his morning by downing last year's runner-up and Canadian turned Broadbeach favourite Ryan Bester and carried on his form to win all three matches to progress. Ryan now faces a tough wait, sitting on a shot margin of +23 and no certainty to progress as a next best qualifier.

Two others in the same situation are former international heavyweights Safuan Said and Kelvin Kerkow, who sit with margins of +25 and +26 respectively and must wait until the conclusion of sectional rounds tomorrow to find out if they will progress.

Southport Bowling Club has certainly embraced Jack Attack and are now reaping the benefits of a constant flow of barefoot bowlers on their greens and a fantastic conversion rate of barefoot bowlers into social and full bowling members.
