Round 2 - Friday 24 November

2017 winners
L-R: Susan Lush, Helen Pascoe, Henk Van De Ven & Gordon Claney

The Moyne Senior Classic has wrapped up in fantastic style today at Port Fairy Golf Club. The weather turned it on again for the players who enjoyed remarkably still conditions and a lovely 24 degrees.

Gordon Claney (Kingston Heath GC) found his best form when it counted most and recorded an outstanding score of 68 today to finish 4-under for the tournament and claim first prize in the 2017 Moyne Senior Classic. The runner-up was Robert Wallace of Midlands who followed up his 74 yesterday with another great round of 75 to finish 5 over for the tournament.

In the men’s nett, Henk Van De Ven (Howlong GC) claimed his first ever seniors trophy after shooting another nett 69 off a daily handicap of 9. Van De Ven has been a regular feature in Golf Victoria seniors events over the last 12 years and was absolutely delighted with the win. Patrick Mitchell (Leongatha GC) was the runner-up after doing all he could to chase down Van De Ven in round two. Mitchell shot an excellent score of nett 68 off a daily handicap of 13 but ultimately fell just one shot short of Van De Ven.

Helen Pascoe (Buninyong GC) executed a magnificent come from behind today win today to claim the first women’s scratch trophy of the 2018 calendar. Helen trailed Sue Dawes (Yarrawonga Mulwala GC) by 4 scratch points after round 1 but showed her true determination in shooting a 1-under 71 today. Ultimately Sue Dawes fell just short by 2 points but nonetheless it was an outstanding effort by her.

In the women’s stableford event, many excellent scores came in today and it was Susan Lush (Gardiners Run GC) who came out on top with 73 points in total for the tournament. Sandra Collingwood (Keysborough GC) did all she could to catch Susan, shooting 40 points today off a daily handicap of 8, but fell short by 1 point.

Golf Victoria would like to congratulate all winners and extend a big thank you to both Warranmbool and Port Fairy golf clubs for their amazing hospitality over the past week.

The first round of the Moyne Senior Classic kicked off today with an impressive field at the picturesque Port Fairy Golf Links. Players enjoyed a beautiful sunny day with a nice cool breeze coming off the ocean.

The Moyne Senior Classic is the last event of the year for the men and first for the women on the respective 2017 Men’s and 2018 Women’s Senior Order of Merit calendars.

Kym Olsen (The National GC) and Gordon Claney (Kingston Heath GC) went head to head today in a contest that will decide the winner of the 2017 Doug Bachli trophy. Olsen came into this tournament as the number one ranked player by a mere 10 points over Claney. Claney has made the better start after shooting 72 in round 1 which puts him at the top of the leaderboard through 18 holes. Olsen was unable to repeat his stellar form at Warrnambool where he blitzed the field with 6-under for the tournament, finishing with 78 today.

Henk Van De Ven (Howlong GC) played off a daily handicap of 9 and finished with nett 69 to sit atop the nett leaderboard through round 1. He will be looking to stay ahead of the pack tomorrow as 5 players trail closely behind after first rounds of nett 71. Keith Finkelde and Ignatius Duivenvoorden have one last chance tomorrow to chase down John Kelly in the Paul Lulofs Trophy.

In the women’s scratch competition, Sue Dawes (Yarrawonga Mulwala GC) returned to form and finished with 34 scratch points to hold the round 1 lead. She appears to be set for an exciting contest with Helen Pascoe (Buninyong GC) tomorrow who recorded 30 scratch points today.

Sue Dawes is also leading the women’s stableford trophy after shooting 37 points off a daily handicap of 2. There are 4 players sitting 2 points back and plenty more within reach of claiming the overall stableford trophy.

The 2017 Senior Order of Merit trophies will be presented for the women tonight at the Tournament dinner before round 2 tomorrow morning at 8:30am.
