Pairing is better off alone in the Cup
GOLF: Bundaberg's Jason Beeston is proof that more hands don't always make for less work.
The six-time Burnett Cup winner is still in the tournament after winning the first two rounds without his partner Duncan Tronc.
Beeston, by himself, won on the 17th hole by two shots in the first match last month before winning on the final hole the next day to put the side in the third round starting this weekend.
"I found out Duncan wasn't playing - he got the dates mixed for his overseas trip - about two to three weeks before we started,” he revealed.
"I was just focusing on not getting flogged.
"If I could jag one win I could have it over my partner. I was lucky to get two.”
Beeston said he made sure his focus was on defensive shots and just getting to half way through the round and reassess where he was it.
It clearly worked.
Now the combination will play this week in the fourth round tomorrow after getting a bye.
Amazingly, it could be the only time the duo plays before the final.
Beeston will head overseas for the quarters and semis, which leaves Tronc with the task of getting the team to the final.
"I was pretty surprised when he called to say that we won,” he said.
"I just hope I can go okay, and keep the winning going.
"I'm hoping it can happen, but it might be a struggle for me to hold two blokes out.”
The duo will be in action tomorrow morning.
