Warrnambool Senior Amateur winds up

Players hit off at 8:30am this morning for the final round of the 2017 Warrnambool Senior Amateur on another spectacular day of warm weather and sunshine.

Both Kym Olsen of The National and Buninyong’s Helen Pascoe capitalised on their overnight leads to finish on top of the respective men’s and women’s leaderboards. Olsen carded a highly impressive 68 today to finish 6 under for the tournament and 13 shots clear of Ian Frost (Bendigo GC). Pascoe finished with 54 scratch stableford points and rounded out another outstanding year in the order of merit. Sue Dawes (Yarrawonga Mulwala GC) was the next best with 49 scratch points.

The nett section was won by Chris Keeshan of Centenary Park with an excellent score of nett 138. The runner-up was George Kotaridis who finished with nett 142 and recorded his first ever hole-in-one today on the 9th hole.

Coming in with the best stableford total for the second year running was local Vicki Johnstone, who carded two consistent rounds of 34 points for 68 points total.

Warrnambool marked the end of the 2017 Victorian Women’s Senior Order of Merit calendar, with presentations to take place on Thursday evening. Players will travel to Port Fairy Golf Club tomorrow for the 2017 Moyne Senior Classic. This will be the first event for the 2018 women’s calendar, and sets up for an exciting race to the finish as the last event on the 2017 men’s senior calendar.
