Dawn Hayman and Mary Sheather have claimed their second victory in three years at the prestigious annual Jean Bartlett Master Pairs at Wiseman Park Bowling Club.

Australian under-18s star Hayman from Fairy Meadow BC and Wiseman Park's Sheather finished as the best of the four-game winners, with a whopping +77-shot differential in the two-day event.

Hayman and Sheather won in 2012 - and were runners-up last year - were the best of four teams who won all four games.

Conditions varied from sunny on the Saturday afternoon to wet and wintry-cold on Sunday.

Australian Commonwealth Games representatives, Shell Cove's Karen Murphy, plus Kelsey Cottrell and Natasha Scott all played.

Hayman and Sheather played tremendous bowls to claim the $2000 winner's purse.

Merrylands' Say Lee Jones and Kerry Farell were runners-up on countback from Karen Murphy and Cabramatta clubmate Kay Moran after both teams finished on 4 wins+42.

Fourth-placed Sharyn Renshaw and Jamie Lee Worsopp (4 wins+25) also won four games.

Established in 1993, the tournament was devised by the late Jean Bartlett and renamed in her honour in 2001.

This year's event featured 34 teams with players being required to have already won a major pairs or singles title.
