Welcome back to the Bendigo Advertiser's central Vic golfers in profile series.
This week we caught up with Bendigo Golf Club's Bruce Duncan to talk about his love for golf and what has kept him coming back to the course for more than 30 years.
During his time he has played off single digits, made two hole-in-ones in addition to endless memories on the course with friends.
These days you will find him out on the course at Bendigo Golf Club sending big drives down the fairways and working on his game with the goal of getting back to a single digit handicap.
