Mal Bromley lands spot in exclusive club | Golf

Like a fine Margaret River wine, local golfer Mal Bromley keeps getting better with age. Statistically speaking, shooting your age during a round of golf is harder than hitting a hole in one. Mal Bromley would know, he's part of an elusive group of golfers to achieve both in his lifetime. The Gracetown local put together an impressive round of golf to record 40 Stableford points and shoot 78 off the stick during his Sunday competition round at the Margaret River Golf Club. Mal was thrilled with the achievement and placed it up there with his two previous holes in one as one of his most memorable days on the golf course. Mal's golf journey started at age 10 when his cousin, the Sports Department Manager at Boans, gave he and his brother two or three golf clubs to play around with. At aged 15, Mal's family moved into Wembley Downs, just up the road from Wembley Golf Course. Mal self-taught himself the game of golf and he would often jump the back fence at Wembley to play s..

At aged 15, Mal's family moved into Wembley Downs, just up the road from Wembley Golf Course. Mal self-taught himself the game of golf and he would often jump the back fence at Wembley to play several holes undetected. In 1972 Mal became a member at Nedlands Golf Club where he played in their Division Two pennant team. The 123 metre 7th at Nedlands became the site of Mal's first official hole in one in 2004. This was followed in 2012 with another hole in one on Margaret River Golf Club's 12th. Even at 78 years of age Mal still plays regular competition rounds (off an impressive handicap of 10) at Margaret River Golf Club and his passion for the game has never wavered.

Uni student’s survey aims to help boost lamb survival

Sheep producers across western NSW are being encouraged to participate in an online survey that investigates vaccination and nutritional supplementation of sheep. Former Peak Hill resident and current Charles Sturt University student, Kayla Kopp, is conducting the investigation as part of her studies. Ms Kopp's PhD at Charles Sturt's School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences is investigating the nutritional supplementation of lambing ewes and sheep producers are being asked to take part in the survey. The survey takes approximately 15 minutes and participants remain anonymous.

"One in five lambs born in Australia die within days of birth, costing the industry over $1 billion each year," Professor Friend said. "Our research aims to better understand how those losses occur and to develop knowledge and tools that will help producers improve animal health and boost lamb survival." READ ALSO: Walgett's Jill Roughley, runs her property with guts and determination The survey is available online (www.surveymonkey.com/r/ lambsurvey) and sheep producers are invited to take part in the research until Saturday, August 31. Participants must be producers currently involved in the sheep industry either as farm owners or managers in NSW; must have ewes lambing on their property annually; and must have at least 50 sheep on their property. The survey builds on Miss Kopp's earlier field studies focused on nutritional supplementation and milk production. Data from the study will contribute to research on animal welfare, animal nutrition and sheep production.
