Round 3 – Sanchez Poised to Strike

It was a tough day at the Subaru State Championships with not a single player managing to break par. However, Matias Sanchez managed to hold his one shot deficit to sit at four under-par after the third round. Sanchez is well poised to take aim at leader Henry Spring when the final rounds starts this afternoon. Andre Lautee and Cameron John currently sit inside the top 10 at +4 and +5 respectively.


Round 2 – Sanchez Fires in NSW while Hilliard Continues Solid Form

The second round of the Subaru State Championships in NSW saw Victorian Matias Sanchez fire a scintillating 6 under par. Sanchez’s round of 65 today complimented his opening round of 1 under to sit outright second at the halfway mark on 7 under par. The junior state team member is a single shot in arrears of New Zealand’s Henry Spring following rounds of 66 and 67. 

Alex Hilliard signed for a round of level par 71 to move into third position on a 36-hole tally of 2 over par. Hilliard is 6 shots behind the round one leader in Celina Yuan who continued her fine form after signing for a 3 under par 68 today. 


Round 1 – Vic’s in Strong Positions at Subaru State Championships

Andre Lautee finds himself tied for fifth position in the Subaru State Championships in NSW after the 15 year old signed for a three under par 68. His round was set up with a bogey free outward nine that included five birdies, three of which came at the 5th, 6th and 7th holes. Lautee reached 6 under after 12 holes but his flawless card was marred by a double bogey on 13 and a bogey on 16 which saw him drop to tied 5th after the opening round. 

Meanwhile Alex Hilliard is the best placed Victorian girl with a round of two over par 73. The junior state team member currently trails New South Wales’ Celina Yuan by three shots after Yuan recorded the only sub-par round with 70 today.
