Golf was in full swing on Saturday as the seventh round of the Summer Cup teed off.

Twenty-one players turned out at Port Hedland Golf Club for the next round of the local competition — one that has been very tight so far.

Josh Garbelini came out on top for the round, perfor-ming the best in windy conditions that proved tough for other golfers, with Luke Jessop finishing in second place.

Players who have participated in the full seven rounds can now start dropping their worst score — a development which will see the leaderboard experience some changes.

The revised overall leaderboard is expected to be released this week.

The round had a pleasant mix of players, ranging from 13-year-old Ash Dwayer to the very experienced Axel Thompson.

The PHGC is in the process of trying to get new players down, with more casual Sunday rounds intended for families and children.
