Law misses chance for Aussie title
MARYBOROUGH Golf Club professional Kevin Law has missed out on his shot at winning some national glory on the Sunshine Coast.
Law and his team, four women members of the Gympie Pines Golf Club, failed to play their way into the championship-deciding round of the Holden Scramble – Australia and New Zealand’s biggest amateur tournament.
The team, which played its way into the final at Twin Waters after winning the qualifying tournament at the Maryborough club and then the regional final at Pelican Waters in Caloundra, where Law was in the line-up, had to be content with playing in the consolation final yesterday rather than the main event.
Teams that qualified for the final round in the main event were joined on course by professionals including US PGA Tour players, Australia’s James Nitties and Cameron Percy, as well as American star Bryce Molder.
Despite not playing with the big guns on the final day, Law, who was playing in the final for the first time, said he and his team-mates had enjoyed their time at Twin Waters.
“To play in the final was an awesome experience and one I know I and the other players won’t forget for a long time,” he said.
“We gave it our best shot but it just wasn’t good enough on the day – that’s golf though.”
More than 45,000 golfers, both male and female, have taken part in the competition this year.
