Cassie Porter (Peregian Golf Course) for not only winning the Girls S.A Junior Amateur Championship (Jan 8-9) but for also being placed third in the S.A Junior Masters (11-12) placed equal fourth in a very strong field of Amateurs & Prefessionals at the Jan Avondale Amateur Open Womens Championship (23-26 - NSW) whereby she earned an exemption into the 2018 Oates Vic Open, that will be contested during February 1-4 at 13th Beach Golf Links.

Well what an unbelievable start to 2018; We know we keep saying “that it is becoming harder and harder to select a Drummond Golf Achiever of the Month Award” given the incredible talent that’s being displayed by our Invincibles members, but if the performances of our past and present Invincibles members throughout December and January (Xmas beak) are anything to go by, then The Invincibles Tour are in for a very exciting and rewarding times throughout 2018!
It is fair to say that the way our members handle themselves both on and off the course is a credit to them and the game of golf, and we wish them all the very best as they venture into 2018 with the confidence in knowing they have what it takes to mix it with the best the world has to offer?
Members that can consider themselves enormously unlucky not to win the Drummond Award for January, are Tyler Duncan (Redcliffe – who won it in December - p3 - below) for his outstanding performance in winning the Victorian Junior Masters Championship and like Cassie was rewarded with an exemption into
the 2018 Oates Vic Open that will be contested during February 1-4 at 13th Beach Golf Links. (links below)
Sam Slater (Brisbane - p4 below) was also well in contention with his outstanding run, where he won the Titleist 2 Day Summer and Caboolture 2 Day Junior Classics as well as being runner-up at the Royal Queensland Junior Open, all with sub-par results at consecutive events!
The Tour would also like to congratulate the Queensland State of Origan Team (p2 - below) for bringing NSW’s ten year winning streak to a stop (all be it a draw) so look out next year!
A special mention: Caleb Purdey (Royal Queensland) was a serious contender for the Drummond Award given his sportsmanship, honesty and integrity, when he saw that an incorrect score card had been handed in (by a player in his group). Caleb took the appropriate steps to make sure that the problem was corrected, and the right score was recorded. This is something we encourage all juniors and their families to do, and somthing we congratulate Caleb for.
The way our past and present members have performed as both golfers and mentors, is a credit to them, and an inspiration to the younger brigade coming through the ranks, which again, is a very healthy sign for the little tackers and juniors who have taken up the challenge of playing golf as their chosen sport "that there is a transition from the beginner the highest possible level in golf".
“It is vitally important that our up and coming juniors have idols and mentors to look up to, and we believe you will have no better examples than Cameron Smith, Karis Davidson, Shae Wools – Cobb, Cassie Porter, Sarah Wilson and Charlie Dann, and that’s just a few of the many incredible golfers that have and are honing their skills on The Invincibles Sunshine Coast Junior Golfing Tour.
To think in five short weeks a mix of our past and present Invincibles members have contested the Titleist 2 Day Summer, Caboolture, and Royal Queensland Junior Classic’s with a large contingent travelling to South Australia, Victoria (x2) Tasmania, New South Wales, and Perth to contest Major State Championships (ranked events – links below) which is extremely exciting to be part of and no wonder we represent so highly on Golf Australia & Golf Queensland Representative Squads?

State of Origan: NSW and QLD played out a thrilling draw in the 2018 State of Origin at Pelican Waters Golf Club in what was a fitting end to the closest State of Origin contest in the 19-year history of the event.
Ambassador to The Invincibles Tour, Shae Wools – Cobb, put in a brilliant performance to get to the semi-finals of the Australian Amateurs Champions in Perth: http://www.golf.org.au/newsdisplay/japan-strikes-double-ausam-gold/99413
We know from time to time some of our members are overlooked. So, if you feel you know of anyone that you believe is worthy of our Drummond Golf Achiever of the Month Award, please nominate them as they will be considered for this award?
The Invincibles Tour, on behalf of their juniors and families would like to take this opportunity to thank Roy and Kim McClean and Terry Young “Drummond Golf Maroochydore” and “Callaway Australia” for their continuing and very generous support of junior golf.
There’s no doubt that programs like The Invincibles Sunshine Coast Junior Golfing Tour could ever exist or be the outstanding success it is, without the very generous support from organizations like Drummond Golf Maroochydore and Callaway Australia!
