The 5th Victorian SGA Tour event for 2012 was held at Waterford Valley with players competing for over $500 of prizes and Tour members playing for Order of Merit points. Thanks to Social Golf Australia sponsors Wilson StaffDrummond GolfHeathcote Winery and bwired. This week there was no Vic Tour Event Sponsor contributing to the prize pool for the day. Above we 2011 OOM winner Neil Hocking watching his approach to the par five 8th hole. With Neil is Sam Haines and watching from the green is Paul Murtagh. Below we see Richard Hanson, Andrew O'Loughlin and Warwick Stonehouse on the fairway of the superb par four 16th hole.

The event featured some turbulent weather with thunderheads threatening and eventually bright sunshine for extended periods of the round. In the finish, one player had a rampant day out to take the bikkies with the rest of the field evenly spread. New Tour player Jason Layton posted his best ever round of competition golf to score +9 and win running away from the field. Behind him there was quite a logjam with just 6 shots separating the next 21 players. Tour regular and Mr. Consistent so far in 2012, Dave Warwick, was second with +4 and new Tour player Andrew O'Loughlin was third with +3. Below we see Neil Hocking looking on as Sam Haines plays a pitch over the green-side bunker on the par four 4th hole.

Note that for the Order of Merit there are no countbacks and Tour members tied on the same score each receive the same OOM points. A player needs to join as a Member of the SGA Tour before receiving OOM points at an event. For info on Tour Membership, see the About the Tour page. Below we see Tour player Paul Murtagh about to crack his drive down the par four 9th hole with some of the stormy weather that threatened the day caught up on the peak of the Dandenongs.
