Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 29, No. 12. 1966.
Victoria finished a disappointing second to Auckland last tournament. There is no doubt that local knowledge plays an important part in these tournaments but not to the extent of the thirty odd strokes by which we were beaten. The team as a whole failed to concentrate enough to bring off the top money. Brian Stewart showed promise with his last two rounds, but the only team member who achieved anything noteworthy was Rodney Barltrop. After an indifferent first three rounds he found himself three strokes off the pace in the individual stroke play. With a blistering 71, two under par, he saved the champion spot by a stroke from P. Garner (Ak). Barltrop also reached the semifinals of the match play.
