MW_on_17.JPG

The 3rd Victorian SGA Tour event for 2012 was held at Eynesbury Golf Course 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 Neil Hocking from Hocking & Associates Consultant Engineers for being the Vic Tour Event Sponsor and contributing to the prize pool for the day. Above we see Tour player Melanie Wood hitting her tee shot on the tricky par four 17th hole and below we see Jason Layton tracking his approach shot to the green of the par four 18th hole.

The event featured some bizarre weather on what is known as a challenging golf golf course. The day started with warm and humid conditions with a light breeze. The wind got up as the day wore on until it reached a point where the course was close to unplayable. The greens were not particularly fast, but there were times on the second nine when stationary balls on the green would start moving. It made for a very testing day and required players to judge the wind and then select the correct club and shot to play according to the conditions. There were spots of rain falling during the back nine and after we had completed play, the skies opened and the temperature fell through the floor.

Above we see Tour Member Nick Sutherland lashing his drive on the par five 5th hole to take out the Long Drive prize for the day. In the finish, only one player in the field (Mario Parisi) broke individual nett par and most of the 4BBB scores were in the 30s with a few even in the 20s. Rob Lugton & Chris Stimmel took the bikkies comfortably with Manny Stavrakis & Eddie Mascitti in second place. New Tour players Stuie Forbes & Chris Lewis took third on countback from Bill Shanks & Nick Mouhtaropoulos who were nudged into fourth place. Behind them there was a logjam with just one shot separating the teams from 5th to 11th place.

Above we see a view of the par three 3rd hole. On the green are Tour players Leigh Douthie, Geoff Cohen, Michael Eade and Joel Matthews. 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. In the bottom photo we see an example of some of the wild weather on the day as Melanie Wood plays a shot on the difficult par four 14th hole as strong winds blow topsoil from the neighbouring housing development across the course.
