The 4th Victorian SGA Tour event for 2012 was held at Portsea Golf Club 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 and to our print media partner Inside Golf magazine for being the Vic Tour Event Sponsor for the day. Above we see the current leader in the 2012 Order of Merit, Nick Sutherland, making his way onto the the green of the superb par four 17th hole. Below we see new SGA Tour Member Andrew O'Loughlin hitting his tee shot on the par three 3rd hole.

The event featured some great weather on a beautifully presented golf course. Portsea is a superb layout and always offers a great test of golf on deluxe playing surfaces. Once again we received great hospitality from the team at Portsa and we look forward to returning every year. In the warm conditions with very little wind, the course was vulnerable and we had some great scores posted and, in the finish, we had a tie for first place that had to be decided on countback. In a very close race, it was Phil Smith who nudged out Rob Lugton for the win with both posting 44 points. For Rob, it was a great return to form after a lean spell. Having not beaten his handicap in nearly a year, his score at Portsea was his best ever round of golf. In another welcome return to form, Paul Enion shot 42 points. After a great start to 2011, Paul struggled in the second half of the year, but turned things around on Sunday with a great round.

Above we see Andrew Yates powering his tee shot on the spectacular par four 6th 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 Nick Sutherland hitting his approach shot from the middle of the fairway on the uphill par four 6th hole. In the bottom photo we see Andrew Yates winding up for his tee shot on the superb par three 3rd hole.
