Scramble to tee up title
KATE Law has already achieved it this year.
Now her father Kevin, the professional at the Maryborough Golf Club, is on course for a shot at winning a national golf title himself early next month.
Kevin, whose daughter was a member of the Queensland under 12 team that won the Australian School Sport National Golf Championships earlier this month, will tee off in the in the final of the Holden Scramble – Australia and New Zealand’s biggest amateur tournament.
He will partner four women members of the Gympie Pines Golf Club, a team that played its way into the final after winning the qualifying tournament at the Maryborough club and then the regional final at Pelican Waters in Caloundra, where Kevin was in the line-up.
The final will be contested at Twin Waters on the Sunshine Coast.
Kevin said he was looking forward to playing in the tournament.
“To even get to the final is an achievement in itself,” he said.
“The competition is always so fierce in this tournament and this year was no different – more and more teams are entering it.
“It will be no easy task to win it but we’ll certainly give it our best shot.”
More than 45,000 golfers, both male and female, have taken part in the competition this year.
