Also of note was an eagle 2 on the 13th by Tony Jackson which with his handicap shot on that hole made his net score 1 for 5 points. Derek witnessed this. He hit a great wedge in and after hitting the green went straight into the hole. Well done Tony. Apparently he did this once before in a yellow ball competition when he had the yellow ball.
