Connor and Kate win golf comp
HERVEY Bay’s Connor Reeves and Maryborough’s Kate Law finished on top of a leader board at the end of a golf tournament in Melbourne last December.
The talented duo has now done just the same – in Maryborough.
Reeves and Law, who were members of the Queensland team that was crowned the under-12 team champions in the Australian School Sport National Golf Championships in Victoria, showed their class by winning their divisions in the annual Maryborough Golf Club Junior Carnival.
The 18-hole tournament was contested by 114 players, a record field, from throughout south-east Queensland.
A member of the Hervey Bay Golf Club, Reeves, who plays off a handicap of four, carded an impressive five over par 75 to win the Division I title by three shots.
Maryborough’s Brayden Best finished second.
While Reeves was playing his way to victory in the top boy’s division, Law, an eight handicapper, was doing the same in the race to win the girl’s title.
Law, who became the youngest winner of the annual Ladies Championships in the 100-year history of the Maryborough Golf Club earlier this year, finished two-shots clear following her round of 80.
However, Reeves and Law were not the only Fraser Coast youngsters to triumph on the day.
Maryborough’s Clancey Nunan won the nine-hole Club Boy’s title while club-mate, Mikeely Waldock, won the girls’ event.
Hervey Bay’s Bonnie Thorogood won the six-hole Club Girl’s event.
