Tough Nugget to crack

by admin

This year’s Golden Nugget field is as tough as usual with some upset first day results for Queenslanders. Pictured left, Opening ceremony for the 30th Golden Nugget at Tweed Heads. Pic Tom Sharman.

Day one of the 30th Golden Nugget (August 8 – 11) has wrapped up, with some very close games being played.

Queenslanders Paul Girdler and Lynsey Clarke both managed wins in round one, Girdler 25 -19 against Aaron Wilson (Vic), and Clarke snatched a close 25 – 22 victory over fellow Jackaroo Anne Johns (NSW).

Broadbeach’s Chloe Stewart was just edged out after a ferocious battle 24 – 25 against Australia’s No 1 women bowler Natasha Scott (NSW).

Ryan Bester, Stephen Halmai, Kelvin Kerkow and Brett Wilkie all missed out on a win in the first round.
