On a day that started out looking as though we were going to get wet, to a day that was picture perfect, no wind to talk of, 24c, under a brilliant sunny sky, the perfect day for Pelican Waters to host round three of The Invincibles IGA Junior Masters Championship, where Justice Bosio (Caboolture) recorded the round of the day, a brilliant……..........
Two under par 74-72-70=216 to take a three-stroke lead into the final round from overnight leader Amy Hodgkins (Redcliffe) on 76-69-74=219 who will head out in the final group.
Also teeing off in final group is Yevin Samararatne (Royal Queensland) after recording three consecutive rounds of 73-73-73=219 from two serious contenders in Harry Takis (Nudgee) and overnight leader in Kai Komulainen (Emerald Lakes) who finished with rounds of 73-72-75=220 and 71-73-76=220 respectively, which promises to create an enthralling finish!
Full results can be found on The Invincibles App.
The Invincibles Tour on behalf all participants and their families would like to pass on their thanks and appreciation to Dale Williams (Golf Operations Manager) and his team for their fantastic support of Junior Golf and The Invincibles Tour.
Their course and facilities were set up magnificently to host what was a magical day’s golf.
It is fair to say that our juniors are privileged to have such support from four of Australia’s leading golf courses in Peregian, Twin and Pelican Waters and Noosa Springs Golf and Spa Resort, a privilege that I know, no one takes for granted and most certainly appreciates.
Once again we would like to thank our mobile scorers and marshals for the great job they did keeping everything in order.
It was sad to witness Keely Purdey (Royal Queensland) having to pull out due to a wrist injury, which was devastating for Keely who was performing extremely well, but the right discission was made, given it could have caused permanent or ongoing problems.
It was also a sad day for Daniel Cho (Indooroopilly) who had the round of the day going, three under heading onto the sixteenth, but unfortunately finished with a 74 over the very testing final three holes.
Adam Van-Dorrselaer was also a little unfortunate, after looking as though he was going to finish with an even par round 72 to falter on the eighteenth to finish with a two over par seventy-four.
Highlights included: Taj Egea’s up and down on 6 for par, Juhi Rampersad’s tee shot on the same hole, Teeren Kannan’s chip in for birdie on 3 and up and down on 6 for par, Liam Dawson’s tee shot on 6 and Kaleb Doolan’s up and down on the same hole for par, Tyler Quaill’s 15 ft putt for eagle on 8, Daniel Cho’s approach and putt for birdie on 15, Justice Bosio’s back to back birdies on 13 and 14.
Amy Hodgkins tee shot and birdie putt on 14, Juhi Rampersad and Ionna Muir’s approaches to 18 to set up their pars, and Yevin Samararatne’s fifty-metre approach shot that finished at the bottom of the hole for birdie, which were just a few of the many highlights during round three at Pelican Waters.
The Tour looks forward to catching up with everyone for the final round at Noosa Springs Golf and Spa Resort tomorrow, with a 9.00am arrival, 10.00am tee off with the leading contenders heading out in the final groupings!
