Round 3

2017 Winners
Welshpool: (LtoR) Alan Hayes, Bob Easton, Graeme Brennan.

Welshpool have held onto their overnight lead in the final round to win the Victorian Men’s Country Teams Championship at Axedale today. The trio had a final round stableford aggregate total of 95 for a 286 total to defeated Timboon by 8 shots. Graeme Brennan was the star of the team which also consisted of Alan Hayes and Bob Easton, returning individual rounds of 38, 31 and 35 Brennan put the team well into contention early.

In the individual events, the best 54-hole total was Hamish Huffadine (Timboon) with a total of 100 points, Phil Lane (Lang Lang) was the 36-hole winner with a total of 68 points for his rounds on Saturday, while Peter Cashmore (Timboon) obtained the 18 Hole event (Sunday’s round) with 36 points.

A special thanks and congratulations to the Axedale Golf Club and the many members that volunteered their time over the weekend to give the players the best experience possible at this years’ Championships.

The Championship, which is arguably one of the most enjoyable events on the calendar, will make its way to Mansfield in 2017.

Round 1 & 2

Day 1 Web

The opening 2 rounds of the 2017 Victorian Men’s Country Teams Championships was played at the Axedale Golf Club today in textbook Spring weather. Axedale, set on the Campaspe River, was presented in beautiful condition but proved hard for many players throughout the day.

The team from Welshpool have bucked this trend however, an aggregate score of 191 for 36 holes has put them 16 shots clear of the rest of the field. From this team, Graeme Brennan posted the best first round score, a blistering 38 points helped put them ahead early, 4 out of the remaining 5 scores were in the 30-plus points range, extending their lead for the tournament. Brennan’s teammates include Alan Hayes and Robert Easton.

Currently in second place is the trio from Portland (Clint Foster, Eddy Ruis and Nick Hoggan), but the single shot margin that separates second and third could easily be made up from Winchelsea and Timboon during tomorrow’s play.

The tournament dinner is being held at the Axedale Golf Club this evening, fuelling the men for the final round tomorrow morning starting at 8:00am.
