Hourn confident of Pennant victory

SOUTH Burnett Men's Pennant player Graham Hourn believes his team has what it takes to take out the Glasshouse Mountains Zone Pennant.

The South Burnett contingent secured their place in the semi-finals with a strong 8-3 win over Pine Rivers in Kingaroy at the weekend and, although not happy with his own game, Hourn said all that was important was the result.

"I played pretty scratchy to be honest,” Hourn said.

"I squared my match - we finished tied - but that was all good.”

With teams consisting of 11 golfers each, players are grouped according to their seeding within their respective teams and play head-to-head against the corresponding seed from the opposing team.

A head-to-head win grants one point to the team's overall score, with half-points provided in the case of a draw.

Hourn was joined by sons Peter and Jack in the South Burnett team, with the trio all managing to draw their respective ties.

Peter could not be separated from Pine Rivers namesake Pete Taylor, while playing as the ninth seed Jack finished level with Brad Russell Senior.

In a twist, the elder Hourn tied with Brad Russell Junior.

Looking ahead to the semi-final fixture with Pacific Harbour, Hourn is quietly confident his team has what it takes to progress to the final.

"We won against them earlier in the year, it will be interesting playing at a neutral venue but I think we should do ok,” Hourn said.
