What a difference a day makes, after two perfect days for golf at Peregian and Twin Waters G.C, mother nature decided to play her part in proceedings heading into the third round of our Invincibles Masters Championship, dropping in excess of 100mm of overnight torrential rain and lightning hitting the Sunshine Coast with vengeance. Enough to put the bunkers out of play and……….
Preferred lies which wasn’t ideal, but it was fantastic to see everyone rally around to make the most of what weren’t ideal conditions.
To say that Pelican Waters was put to the test would be a gross understatement, but as is normally the case, they handled it brilliantly.
Daniel Cho (Indooroopilly) sits just three shots back and is looking forward to the challenge at Noosa Springs to see if can engrave his name into The Invincibles IGA Sunshine Coast Junior Masters trophy and don the Masters Jacket!
As does Travis Robbie (South Port – pictured with Zoe) and Mitchell Revie (Hills) who recorded excellent rounds of two and one under par respectively.
Boys overnight leaders Baxter Smith (Bribie Island) and Cooper Clarke (Noosa) hit a bit of a hurdle on day three but are looking forward to bouncing back with better performances tomorrow.
Zoe Maxwell (Virginia) to her own admittance, had a tough day at the office, I just couldn't get anything going today, Zoe said, but I look forward to tomorrow with the aim of getting things back on track
Lydia Shackell (Hervey Bay) who is just five shots back, has thrown her hat in the ring to see if she can’t muster up the challenge to see if she can put enough pressure on Zoe to take it to the wire..
A major highlight is witnessing the friendship and comradery that’s on display between our juniors and the parents, which really makes for a fantastic atmosphere.
To witness Charlie Dann (Ex Invincibles Member) and now a touring professional come along to caddie for Caitlyn Wheatly (Noosa Springs) was very special and a true indication into a man that really enjoyed his time with The Invincibles.
Other highlights during round three included: Caitlin Vanderkruk and Amy Hodgkins and Jack Elsley’s approaches to 13 to set up their birdies, Josh Holbrook’s approaches to 5 and 6 to within thirty centimetres for kick in birdies, as well as his seven metre putt on 18 for another birdie, Mitchell Revie’s 90ft putt on 10 for an unbelievable eagles and followed that up with a par, birdie, birdie over the next three holes, which were just a few of the many highlights during day three of The Invincibles Junior Masters!
Day 4, the final round continues at the beautifully presented Noosa Springs Golf and Spa resort, arrival 9.37am for a 10.37am tee off!
The Tour and those participating would like to pass on their thanks and appreciation to Andrew Kenny (Manager – Pelican Waters) and his great team for having their course in excellent condition “given the circumstances” to host our Masters Championship and for making everyone feel welcome, it is always much appreciated!
Again, we would to thank those that volunteered as scorers and marshals, it really does make a huge difference to our Master’s Championship and it’s fair to say that would not be the great event it is without your input and support.
Once again, a huge thanks to Frank who always does a fantastic job and Darren Gill for their help, again, it was very much appreciated.
A full rundown of results will be on The Invincibles website after the final round: gross results after day 3, see below:
