Two legends were crowned in the annual Legends Cup competition at NOTL Golf Club last week.

Warren Tutton and Doug McCulloch were deadlocked after the second round of play.

And instead of fighting it out in a playoff, the two respected golf buddies opted to share the trophy, just like the men's high jumpers at the Tokyo Olympics.

The Legends is an 18-hole total score competition played over consecutive Tuesdays – but it is restricted to players aged 80 and up.

After the first round, Tutton was a shot ahead of McCulloch, the defending champ. They ended up tied after the final round and when associate pro Ricky Watson said they could have a playoff or share the cup, they opted for the latter.

Darryl Fry was first in the low net category, one shot ahead of Ian Rutherford and David Lailey, who tied for second.

In WOOFs league play the same day, John Sobil carded a 2-over 38 for low gross honours, while Mike Henry took low net with a 34. Bob Thompson won the hidden hole with a birdie on #9 and Alex Topps was closest to the pin on #4. Rai Lauge won $65 in the 50/50 draw.

WOMEN'S LEAGUES: Lisa Allen and Ginny Green shot 85 and tied for low gross in the 18 hole women's league on Tuesday. They were followed by Yolanda Henry (87), Cathy Murray (92) and Barbara Ahluwalia (93).

Low net winners were Allen (68), Green (69) and Sue Sherk, Gayle Tanner and Ahluwalia (71). Jennifer Meszaros had a chip in on #8.

In the nine hole women's league, Helen McCallum won the Carmichael Cup low net trophy with a net score of 34.

MEN'S LEAGUES: John Sobil followed up his fine round of two days earlier by shooting a scorching 2-under 34 in the Thursday men's league. He was also first in modified Stableford scoring with 26 points, followed by Cal Cochrane and David Lailey (25), Jack Hanna (23) and Martin Vagners, Ralph Rickard and Darryl Fry (22). Joe Doria was closest to the pin on #4 and Dow Wright was closest on #9.

Jack Hanna won a $200 net skin for a birdie on #1 and Ted Carmichael earned $130 for a gross skin for his birdie on #9.
