On what was a magnificent day for any outdoor sport, particularly golf, it would be hard to imagine anyone wanting to be anywhere else that at the magnificently presented Noosa Springs Golf & Spa Resort whilst contesting their Junior Classic, and that’s just what Caitlin Vanderkruk (Keperra) and Willy Bishop (Canada) were doing as they put in workman like performances to get over the line with……
Rounds of 85 and 81 respectively.
Not what either Caitlin or Willy were happy with, but never the less, they were more than happy to walk away with the win.
“Sometimes it’s not pretty, and you have to dig deep to get over the line, and today was one of those days as both Caitlin and Willy confided”.
A special thanks to the great team at Noosa Springs for all their hard work and support, particularly Suzie Smith and the catering department for their input and support on the day, they were magnificent and very much appreciated.
The Invincibles Tour would also like to thank and make special mention of Callaway Australia, Drummond Golf Maroochydore, and Sunshine Coast Council for very generously supporting the day.
Tyler Quail (Maroochy River p2 below) qualified for The Invincibles 2018 IGA Sunshine Coast Junior Masters Championship, which will be hosted by the very generous and supportive Twin Waters, Pelican Waters, Peregian Golf Course, and Noosa Springs Golf & Spa Resort during the last week of the September School holidays (30th September to the 3rd of October). Unfortunately, no girl qualified.
Rhys Vanderkruk (Keperra p 3- 4 above) won The Invincibles Sunshine Coast Course Cup with 69 nett, and in the process qualified for the Sunshine Coast Gold Cup of Cups Championship that will be hosted by Pelican Waters (Sunday November 25) followed immediately by The Invincibles Annual Junior Presentation Dinner, where we would like to think that all Gold Cup contestants would make themselves available?
The Invincibles Inter – Club Team Shield points for round 5 are as follows: Redcliffe Golf Club earned the four points for winning, Caboolture Golf Club earned two points for second, with Maroochy River Golf Club taking out one point for third.
Highlights on the day included: Caitlin Vanderkruk’s 3m putt on 3 for birdie, Jordan Speare’s brilliant approach and putt for birdie on 3 and 5m putt on 4 to save par, Tyler Quaill’s excellent tee shot and putt for birdie on 4, Brendan O’Brien’s brilliant tee shot on 4, Brock Armitage’s approach to 3 and 30m putt on 4 to record back to back birdies, Rhys Vanderkruk’s 15m putt on the 1st for birdie, Sunday Moore’s 4m putt par on 4, Ionna Muir’s excellent putt on 4 to save par, Lilly’s Surasen’s approach to 4, Max Rogers 3m putt on 7, Brock Armitage’s approach to 7, Brendan O’Brien’s tee shot and 15cm putt for birdie on 13.
Other great highlights included; Willy Bishop’s birdie on the hardest hole on the course, the 7th, Mikayla Dyal’s tee shot and putt for birdie on 16, but the major highlight was left to Tyler Quaill after putting two balls in the water on 5, and then chipped in for boggy, which was brilliant, and just a few of the many special highlights during the day…….
The Invincibles Tour would like to thank Steve & Chantelle Dyal for their very generous support of the 5, 6 and 9-hole section. Both Steve and Chantelle have offered to help run these divisions to create a unified format with Golf Queensland and the Glass House Mountains format which is something we have collectively been trying to achieve for some time.
Congratulations to the following 9-hole contestants, Sophie Thomsen (Pelican Waters) Ellianna MacRae (Maroochy River) and Layla Barnett (Peregian Springs) who took out the girl’s division with scores of 40, 43 and 44 respectively.
Samuel Wilson (Maroochy River) Chase Rendell (Tin Can Bay) and Brody McRae (Maroochy River) were separated by only two shots after returning scores of 47, 48 and 49 respectively.
Important note: As most are more than aware, it is a priority of The Invincibles Tour to have play-offs whenever and wherever possible “given course availability and time restraints” but unfortunately this wasn’t the case on Sunday given that the round of golf for one reason or another bordered on five hours and given that Noosa Springs had prepared plates of food for the contestants, which made it very difficult to have a play-off, which was a disappointment to a couple of our members and the organisers, but unfortunately not everything goes the way one would like, and it is times like this that we appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding.
The Invincibles Tour are looking forward to catching up with everyone at Mount Coolum for their Junior Open (Sunday, July 29) which is renowned as being one of the best junior events on The Invincibles Tour.
