UPDATE 3.18pm: Congratulations to City of Echuca bowler Philip Thorn, crowned Bowls Victoria men’s singles champion.
Thorn scored an epic 25-24 victory over Gippsland’s Matthew Higgins in a tense final at East Bendigo Bowling Club.
He scored four wins en-route to the championship, including a quarter final win against Bendigo’s Aaron Wilson, who was representing Northern Gateway region.
Thorn was trailing 6-11 in the final, but mounted a great comeback to win the championship by the barest of margins.
Certainly an entertaining day’s bowling at East Bendigo.
