Fam­ily duo aces event

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

THE Bund­aberg fa­ther-and-son com­bi­na­tion of Matt and Neil We­ston, along with Matt Janke and Peter Hutchieson, took out the Holden Scram­ble at the Biggen­den Golf Club on Sun­day.

Hutchieson, who is mar­ried to for­mer Biggen­den res­i­dent Lor­raine Fan­ning, has been play­ing golf at Biggen­den since an open day back in 1964.

“The team com­bined well on the day,” he said.

But win­ning isn’t new to Hutchieson as his team won last year at Agnes Wa­ters be­fore go­ing onto the re­gional fi­nals.

“At this stage we don’t know where we have to play next – pos­si­bly Twin Wa­ters or Yep­poon on Oc­to­ber 19,” he said.

Two Gayn­dah teams were sec­ond and third on the day.

Bund­aberg Golf Club pro­fes­sional Craig Swift said days such as the Holden Scram­ble were good for the host­ing club, in this case Biggen­den, as it re­ceived a per­cent­age of the en­try fee, as well as cater­ing for the event.

The Holden Scram­ble is a pro-am­a­teur club event that is man­aged by the PGA of Aus­tralia.

Since the event started back in 1992, the Holden Scram­ble has be­come Aus­tralia’s largest and most suc­cess­ful pro-am­a­teur teams event.
