Electrinet Park

EVAN Parkin so enjoyed the taste of winning the Tuesday veterans' stableford last week he went back for more on Saturday.

Parkin had 37 points on Tuesday and 38 points for his round of 84-14-70 on Saturday, including a two.

Matt Henwood is setting the pace in the Diggit Gizzy Thursday twilight shootout qualification.

The top 10 scorers at the end of the 20-round twilight series next year go on to contest the 9-hole elimination final.

The winner of that pockets $1000.

The qualification format is aggregate stableford from a player's top five scores before the Christmas holiday break and top five of the 10 rounds after Christmas.

Henwood already has a best-five total of 101, four of those 20 points or better.

The field is filling fast for the Christmas hams open tournament on Sunday, December 5.
