  • Description

    At the start of the final round of the Dutch Open Gold Championship on Sunday (13 August), Australia's Graham Marsh was given little chance to complete a treble, after recent wins in the Swiss and German Opens.

    Although countryman Jack Newton was tied at second place with Britain's Malcolm Gregson, Marsh was not placed in the top ten. Peter Oosterhuis, also of Britain, began the final round in the lead with a score of 207, at the Hague Golf and Country Club.

    Victories in the Swiss and German Opens earned Graham Marsh 4,000 pounds sterling, and he seemed to be enjoying a confident spell. But this weekend brought an end to his good fortune. His brother, Rodney -- playing for Australia at the Oval Cricket Ground against England -- did not fare much better. He was out for naught on -Saturday, bowled by Underwood.

    In the third round of the Dutch Open, Marsh seemed to have the most trouble. The course, set in spectacular dune country, is freely fringed with willow scrub and buckthorn, rough that Marsh found himself in all too often.

    The only consolation for either of the Marsh brothers was the news from the Oval. With England all out for 284 in the first innings, Australia was 394 for eight.
