Qld Mixed Foursomes Championship

/> DeeDee-Taylah Russell (Emerald Lakes) and Josh Edgar (Surfers Paradise) have teamed up to win the 2016 Queensland Mixed Foursomes Championship held at McLeod Country Golf Club on the weekend.

Twenty-five pairs teed up on Sunday for the state title with the McLeod Golf Club providing a cracking day for 36-holes of golf.

The Russell and Edgar partnership took an early lead at the conclusion of the morning’s round with a score of 73. Fresh off the plane from college golf in the United States was last year’s returning runner-up duo of Nick Barney (Windaroo) and Nadine White (Pacific). The duo finished their first round two shots back, but were troubled by a two doubles on the back nine.

Russell and Edgar seemed to find trouble in the afternoon with two doubles and four bogey’s, however returning three birdies to fire a three-over second round giving them a thirty-six hole score of 73-76 (149) and claim a three shot victory for this year’s championship.

The Barney and White partnership were unable to bridge the gap in the afternoon recording scores of 75-77 (152) to earn their second-runner up title after last year’s defeat over sister Stacey White and Blake Proverbs by one shot.

The partnership of Roxann Blake and Craig Blake of Oxley took out the Nett event with a total of 151 followed by Sunshine Coast visitors Rory Turner and Danika Coyne one shot back with 152.

Golf Queensland would like to thank the McLeod Country Golf Club for presenting the course in fantastic condition once again.
