December E News Competition

With the MFS Australian Open fast approaching, last month we asked you to tell us your favourite memory from either the men&aposs or the women&aposs event. Reading through the responses brought back a flood of nostalgia for the team at Golf Australia, but we have settled on a winner and a couple of honourable mentions. “Watching Aaron Baddeley&aposs parents just glowing with pride as their son won his first Australian Open.” Congratulations to Peter French from Melbourne who rekindled this stirring memory from Royal Sydney Golf Club in 1999. If Badds&apos parents were proud then, they must have been overjoyed when he backed up at Kingston Heath the following year as a professional. We couldn&apost go past this image and Peter has won a pair of tickets to a day of his choice at the MFS Australian Open in Sydney or the MFS Women&aposs Australian Open in Melbourne plus a deluxe hardcover book entitled “The Champions and The Courses They Played”. Other responses we liked included: “My most memorable moment was at this year&aposs Women&aposs Open at Royal Sydney. I was working in the scorer&aposs hut and marked Natalie Gulbis&aposs card. We chatted for a while about working with junior girls before she left the hut and returned 5 minutes later with a signed glove for me to give to a special junior.” Jan Heys of Lugarno, NSW shows us how inspirational and down to earth some of the world&aposs best golfers can be on AND off the course. “It was Greg Norman&aposs putt on the 18th that got him into the weekend rounds. I had made my way to the stands beside the green earlier & was fortunate enough to be sitting right behind that putt – it never looked like missing & I&aposm sure the crowd reaction was one of the best moments in Australian sport.” Geoff Farrar only has to cast his mind back to last year when the AUstralian Legend sent the crowd into raptures after sinking a monster putt to make the cut at Royal Sydney. This month we are giving away another dapper Sporte Leisure polo shirt from the Greg Norman Collection. Embroided with the Shark&aposs famous emblem and the Golf Australia logo, you will be looking sharp the next time you step out on to the course!
