RUSHMORE Golf Club’s Rod Alford shot an incredible gross three-under par 68 to take the St John’s Ambulance Charity Competition.

The round included a two at the fourth and four other birdies.

Alford’s masterful performance lowered his handicap from nine to seven, and his 68 is the best gross score at the club since Ben Stow’s 65 in the club championships in 2010, which stands as the course record.
