Queensland Men’s and Women’s Foursomes Championships was once again strongly supported with a large field of nearly 170 competitors teeing off at Wynnum Golf Club on Sunday.
Scott Draper (Keperra) and Ashley Grosvenor (Keperra) won the 2016 Queensland Men’s Foursomes Championship by a commanding three strokes with scores of 70-67 for a total of 137.
The QAS squad pairing of Shae Wools-Cobb (Maroochy River) and Charlie Dann (Pelican Waters) closed out their afternoon round with 67 to join their morning score of 73 (total 140) to finish runners up and three shots behind the winners.
The Brisbane duo of Timothy Lukin and Cameron Powell combined well to shoot the day’s best round of 66 and take the first round lead, but their afternoon score of 74 (total 140) wasn’t enough to keep them on top, finishing in third place on a count back.
The Women’s Foursomes was won by the State Team pairing of Robyn Choi (Royal Pines) and Kirsty Hodgkins (Redcliffe). Despite trailing by two shots heading into the afternoon, the pair’s consistency of rounds of 73-74 (Total 147) was enough to win by one shot.
It was the State Junior Girls pairing of Darcy Habgood (Toowoomba) and Lisa Edgar (Surfers Paradise) that set the hot pace in the morning with a promising score of 71, however this could not be maintained with the pair signing for an afternoon round of 77 (Total 148) falling just short.
This was the fourth year in a row that Wynnum Golf Club has hosted this State Championship and was once again presented in great condition. The player’s obviously enjoying the venue and format with stronger than ever numbers consisting of 23 women partners and 61 male partners entered.
