Oliver and Pascoe shine at the sandgreens

Helen Pascoe (Buninyong) impresses again as she goes on to win the 2015 Victorian Women’s Sandgreens Championship with rounds of 79 & 77. Pascoe showed she could handle the pressure coming down the back nine, as she amazing recorded four birdies on holes 13, 14, 16 & 17. Mary Anne Davis (Murray Downs) finished one shot adrift.

“I have never seen the course is such great condition. The scrapes have to be the most consistent that I have played on”. Pascoe mentioned.

A tremendous field of 127 women continued their Sandgreens Championship here at Avoca Country Golf Club with round two played today in what was near perfect golfing weather. Light winds greeted the morning field which created ideal scoring conditions. While winds slightly picked up in the afternoon, it didn’t trouble Pascoe who has now won two sandgreens titles after her 2013 win.

In the nett, it was first timer and overnight leader Isobel Oliver (Inverleigh) who capped of a remarkable couple of days to win from Jan Lang. Oliver recorded rounds of 65 & 72. Isobel, a new person to golf, was delighted in her performance and enjoyed her first championship.
