Teenage tyros fight out Park Beach Open Bowls Singles final

TALENTED teenager Mason Lewis is the 2015 Park Beach Open Singles Bowls champion.

Merrylands based Mason, 18, defeated close friend and Coffs Coast hope Corey Wedlock, 20-15.

Corey, who moved from Urunga to Cabramatta 12 months ago, pushed his eventual conqueror all the way but fell out of contention in the last few ends.

It was Mason's first appearance at the Park Beach Open Singles and he described his experience as "amazing".

"The people were great, the greens were fantastic and I really enjoyed the experience," he said.

"I'll definitely be back."

He claimed first prize of $10,000 with Corey pocketing $4,000 as runner-up.

Park Beach Bowls Club correspondent Neil Bowes will do a debrief of the classic event in The Coffs Coast Advocate this Wednesday.
