Port Macquarie bowlers Callum Murray and Jack Lewis are well poised to make a charge on the greens at Port City.
After two days of the Kia Prestige Pairs at Port City Bowling Club, the local duo are ready to strike on the third and final day of competition on Friday.
They suffered a slip-up early on day one (Wednesday), but recovered with a strong performance on “moving day”.
Murray said it was a good opportunity to improve their game in a more competitive environment than just a casual “roll up”.
“We’re out here having a bit of fun in a competition which is a bit different to just rolling up and playing yourself,” Murray said.
“Thursday was moving day and we lost a game on day one, but we’d rather lose early and get it out of the way.”
Murray admitted he preferred to worry about playing what was in front of him rather than focusing too much on the scoreboard.
“Everyone turns up to win, but we’re hoping we can get a top three finish,” he said.
Murray bowls for Port City Bowling Club, while Lewis is a Port Macquarie boy but has moved to Engadine Bowling Club in Sydney.
There is more then $6000 in prizemoney on offer with a full field of 40 teams for the annual tournament.
NSW player Craig Donaldson is also contesting this year’s event.
