The Invincibles Sunshine Coast Gold Cup of Cups Champion - 2018

 

gcoc 2018 main


Brock Armitage (Pelican Waters)  
 

On what was a hot and sunny day (34c) with a nice breeze that kept conditions to a manageable level. The Invincibles Junior Golfing Tour and their members gathered together at Pelican Waters Golf Club to contest their Gold Cup Of Cups Championship, where at one point, it looked as though lightning and storms were going to bring a halt to the championship, but as good fortune would have it, it went around us, to allow the championship to continue and come to a very exciting climax, that sent the 2018 Gold Cup of Cups into a three way count back “after three boys finished tied on 70 nett”.


After close inspection of the cards, it was noticed by the officials, that one boy had incorrectly filled out his card and had to be disqualified, which was a shame, but sometimes an unfortunate part of our game.


Unfortunately for Jayden Dyal (Caboolture) the misdemeanour ruled him out of contention and the opportunity of defending his title!


“Just for the record, Brock would have still won the title on c/b”, so there was no harm done (other than a lesson learnt) and one can’t take away from Jayden’s performance, after putting in a solid attempt to defend his title.


The final result went down to the wire, where Brock Armitage (15 h/c – main photo) to his and his families delight, was announce by Peter Owen at The Invincibles Presentation Dinner, as the "Gold Cup of Cups Champion for 2018" from Bailey Arnott (1 h/c – both Pelican Waters members) who jokingly wanted to go down the first in the dark to get a result.

Brock (p1 & 4 above) was thrilled to bits to hear Peter Owen announce his name as the winner, as was everyone else at his table!


To say the Armitage’s were excited, would be a gross understatement, mum and dad were thrilled to bits and as proud as punch, as were the team of Pelican Waters members who brought the house down when the announcement was made.


Brock was so excited, this is the best Brock said, I’m over the moon, what a day, I just can't believe it!

 

It just goes to show that regardless of your handicap, you’re still in with a chance if you play to your ability! Going into the back nine, Bailey had it to three under which was an outstanding effort.

 

This is the second time Pelican Waters has won the Gold Cup in the past three years, with Jordan Speare taking it out back in 2016.

 

Bailey was very humble in defeat!

 

I knew I was in with a chance Bailey said, I knew that if I could drop my putt on the last to come in with a 69 nett, that would be good enough to be in with a chance, Pelican Waters is a tough track, and I knew with the conditions, I was in the hunt.

 

But that wasn't to be, and I congratulate Brock on his great win Bailey said, he is a great member of the club and he put in a fantastic performance, he really deserved his win.

The win for Brock capped off what has been an unbelievable year for Pelican Waters who went on to receive the award for “The Club That did the most to Promote, Develop and Nurture Junior Golf” which was an outstanding and fitting result for a club that has done so much for junior golf over many years, particularly on The Invincibles Tour throughout 2018.

 

Will Martell also took out the Coastline BMW Encouragemet Award, just to top off what was a great night for Pelican.  

 

Highlights on the day included: Jarrod Goodwin’s approach and putt on the 2nd for birdie, Wilson Fosters approach and putt for birdie on 3, Bailey Arnott and Cooper Clarke’s tee shots on 6, Will Martell’s magical bunker shot on 6, Rhys Vanderkruk's world class tee shot on 6 to set up his birdie, Liam Dawson fantastic up and down from the bunker to save par on 6.

 

Other magical moments included, Joshua Mitchell & Jarrod Goodwins brilliant birdies on 8, Jordan Rooke’s approach to the 3rd and birdie on 8, Zac Harrison and Yevin Samararatne’s brilliant up and down from the bunkers on 3, James Riseley’s tee shot on 11 to set up a birdie, Rebecca O’Neill’s birdies on 1 and 13, along with Liam Dawson’s birdies on 7 and 8 and Brock Armitage’s fantastic approach shot on 13, that were just a few of the many, many highlights during the day!

It has always given our Invincibles members and their families a great feeling of excitement and anticipation when they gather together at major events and special functions to celebrate the performances and achievements of their juniors, and Sunday the 25th of November was just one of those days when everything came together.


The Tour would like to make special mention and thank those competitors (and parents) who contested the Gold Cup of Cups Final and stayed back for the Dinner and Presentations to support their fellow team mates and friends on their special night.

 

Your actions displayed true sportsmanship, but most importantly you showed respect for the traditions and etiquette of the game, which is something we really do appreciate and thank you for.

We would also like to thank anyone who played any small part in the day for your support and encouragement; particularly our mobile scorers, spotters and marshals, because without that support Championships like our Course Cup, Gold Cup of Cups and many more of our major events just wouldn’t exist and that’s something I know our Invincibles members and their families appreciate and don’t take for granted, because we know, it truly is an honour and a privilege for our juniors to be able to contest Major Championships like ours on some of Australia’s finest golf courses.

 

Even though it makes for a long day, the decision to wind up the Tour by running both the Gold Cup and Dinner on the same day, has proven to be a good one.

It gives us the opportunity to gather together to celebrate Christmas and our junior’s great performances at the same time, and from the feedback and support we have received from our members, their families, and the golfing industry, has been very positive “particularly for a very happy Brock Armitage.

Thanks to the competitors, caddies and galleries, our Gold Cup of Cups Championship was played in great spirit, which is something that The Invincibles Tour is renowned for. They not only dress incredibly, but they do all the little things to make sure everyone’s day on the course is an enjoyable one.

 

The committee of The Tour would like to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate everyone involved for helping make the day a great success.

 

The Invincibles Tour would also like to thank their sponsors and supporters for their unbelievable and overwhelming support of The Tour, because without that support we would be struggling to exist, and it is important to us that you know we appreciate that support.
