LAUNCESTON sisters Diedre Panton and Tammy Hall came out on top of a cliffhanger match in yesterday's Northern women's foursome golf championships.
Teams were even right up to the 18th hole, according to Golf Tasmania North secretary Rob Fitzgerald.
"A number of the best lady golfers in Tasmania competed in the event, and it was fought out to the very last hole," Mr Fitzgerald said.
"Unfortunately a missed three-foot putt by the runners-up caused them to finish the game, if they dropped the putt it would have gone to a playoff."
He said the Panton-Hall team won the 27-hole gross and nett score for the day.
The team were only one stroke ahead in gross and 1/4 stroke nett against Angie Bowden and Narelle Hayes.
"After the first 18 holes, those two groups were equal," Mr Fitzgerald said.
"The girls had a great game themselves, the competition was great between the teams."
