Jordan beats rivals and weather

JORDAN Hall has continued to make his return to amateur golf ranks a winning one.

The former trainee professional has won another tournament at his home club, the Hervey Bay Golf Club.

Hall, who won the men’s club championship last month, is now the City of Hervey Bay Open champion.

Now playing off a handicap of one, Hall battled the wind and rain to card a one over par round of 71 to win the event by one shot.

His round included three birdies on the final nine holes.

Maryborough Golf Club member Paul Mathiesen finished second.

The tournament was contested by 170 players from throughout the region and some from Brisbane.

Burrum District Golf Club member Rob Norman finished on top of the leader board in B grade following his round of 78.

Norman won by four shots from Hervey Bay Golf Club member, Michael Duke.

Another visitor, Donald Croker, a member of Nudgee Golf Club, made the trip north worth it by winning the C grade with a round of 87.

He finished just one shot ahead of another member of the host club, Bob Layt.

Hervey Bay Golf Club professional Matthew Keegan said the scoring had been pretty impressive given the conditions.

“Rain and wind don’t make for good golfing weather,” Keegan, who has played on the Asian and Australasian tours in his career, said.

“Saying that, plenty of good rounds were carded so that was a credit to the players.”
