Another good day for the Marby Golf program with a number of players picking up the pace and shooting some good scores. Li Su stormed home on the back 9 (4 under) to post a 3 under the card 69 on the beach course at 13th beach. George Carasavidis exploded out of the blocks racing to 3 under after 4 holes before fading late however still coming in 3 under his handicap. With Kiandra Hughes, Jack McKenzie, Aashish Sudarsanan, Corey Zelez and Harry Weaver also posting good scores it looks like Marby golf will be well represented when the cut is made after round 3
