Toby Walker prevails at Leongatha

2017 Leongatha Winners

Toby Walker has captured his second Stuart Appleby title for the year after holding on to win todays Leongatha Junior Open.

Conditions were the opposite from yesterday’s cold and windy day as players basked in a magnificent sunshine with only the slightest breeze to mention. The temperature was steady as it reached into the high teens – drying out the course from the deluge that fell night before and the days leading up to the weekend.  

James Walker from Wodonga applied the pressure to Toby Walker early on the inward nine with his lead narrowing to only a few shots. However, the deficit James faced over the Heidelberg member was too much with Toby prevailing by three strokes after signing for a round six over-par 76. Toby Walker’s first win came at the Yarrawonga Junior Open when he fired two sub-par rounds, including a scintillating final round 66 to take home the honours.  

Heading into today’s final round with a one-shot lead, Commonwealth’s Cody Cuthbert carded 76 from his 7 handicap for victory in the overall nett section. Cuthbert notched out James Walker by two shots for the title.

Chelsea Dunne from Latrobe took home the overall girls title.
