Inverell's Dianne and Jim Shadlow created history at the NSW Veteran Golf Match Play Championship held in Newcastle last week.
The two became the first husband and wife duo in the history of the competition to win in the same year.
Both players were graded into division one on handicap and after four rounds of knockout golf came out on top.
Women have to be over 50 to play Veteran's golf, while the age for men is 55. There is no qualifying for this competition, it is conducted by nomination only.
When nominations close the players are graded into pools of 16, the top 16 being the championship pool where the ladies play off handicap, while the men all play off scratch.
The elimination rounds were played over the first three days on different courses, with the last two unbeaten golfers playing in the final on Friday.
Mondays play was at Belmont Golf Club where Dianne played a lady from Wollongong and won five and four while Jim beat a gentleman from Brisbane four and three.
Tuesdays play was at Toronto in hot windy conditions. Dianne played the number one seed from Scone and after a tough tussle had to play an extra hole and win after the 19th.
Jim won his match three and one against a Sydney golfer. Thursdays semi-final play was at the Raymond Terrace Golf Club (Muree).
Again conditions were very windy but both found the course and conditions to their liking with Dianne winning six and five over a Nowra lady while Jim won four and three over his opponent from Scone.
The finals were played at Charlestown Golf Club and both expected tough competition but mirrored each other with five and four victories over opponents from Belmont and Kurri Kurri.
Dianne and Jim are very proud of their achievement.
At the presentation luncheon both players thanked all their opponents and stated they were excited with their win but more excited with the fact that they created history in winning the individual events in the same year.
