Golf NSW HP Star Harrison Endycott has added the 2016 Riversdale Cup to his growing trophy cabinet after an impressive performance over the last four days.
The Central Coast golfer now has the US Amateur firmly in his sights.
Endycott posted four sub par rounds to finish at 14-under par 274 to win by a shot from Kiwi Henry Spring. Victorian David Micheluzzi was a shot further back in third.
“I’m really happy with the way I played this week,” says Endycott. “I’m really driving the ball well at the moment. My coach Mark Paterson is pretty rapt too.”
Endycott’s play all week was impressive, in particular a bogey free run of 45 holes from the 8th hole in his second round until the last hole of the tournament with the win in his sights by then.
“I hit a good pitch on the last, it just plugged in the face of the bunker,” he smiled.
The win is likely to propel the 20 year old close to the top 50 of the Amateur World Golf Rankings after his win in the Lake Macquarie amateur in January earlier this year.
The next event in Endycott’s sights is the South Australian Classic in two weeks, followed by the Interstate Series in late April. After that its off to the US and hopefully a start in the US amateur.
“My main goal for the year is to make the US Amateur field.”
With the top 50 players on the Official Amateur World Ranking getting an automatic start, Endycott is hopeful of achieving his goal.
“Last week I was sitting at 64, I’ll be interested to see where I am next week,” Endycott beamed.
