Indooroopilly s Sam Christie nailed a 20-foot putt during a play off with Bill Banks (Royal Canberra Golf Club) and Greg McKay (Cabramatta Golf Club), to win the 2014 Men’sNSW Senior Championship at Tuncurry Golf Club today. The trio all finished the 54-hole event on 230, and with time allowing a play off ensued. One hole was all that was required though, Christie clinching the victory in a nail-biting finish. Christie improved on each day of three day event. Round one he shot 80, improving by four strokes on round two with 76. It was the final round 74 that bought him to top of the leader board. I m thrilled to win this State Championship event remarked Christie in his acceptance speech, especially considering the quality of players that were out there today. Any one of us could have won it today, and I just feel very privileged to have done so. The team from Forster-Tuncurry did a fantastic job in hosting this event, with the Vets crew providing the BBQ for three days, a team of volunteers spotting around the course and representatives from the Club and District providing assistance throughout. Congratulations to all who took part in this year s event.
