Inside Golf - - News -

VIC­TO­RIAN Todd Sin­nott has cap­tured The Dunes Medal, out­last­ing Vic­to­ria’s Ge­off Drake­ford and NSW’S Dim­itrios Pa­padatos in an ex­cit­ing con­test on Vic­to­ria’s Morn­ing­ton Penin­sula.

Lead­ing by four shots go­ing into the fi­nal round, Sin­nott played steady on the dif­fi­cult Dunes lay­out, fir­ing a fi­nal round 72 (281 to­tal) which was enough to hold off Drake­ford (283) and a surg­ing Pa­padatos, who carded a fi­nal round of 69 to fin­ish at 284.

For the Women, it was Lee Park who took top hon­ours over Ash­ley Ona (QLD) and Min Jee Lee (WA). Park’s four-round to­tal of 296 was two shots clear of Ona (298) and a fur­ther two ahead of Lee (300) who’s fi­nal round 75 saw her drop from the top spot.

The Dunes Medal has be­come a “must play” event on the Aus­tralian am­a­teur cal­en­dar. Ja­son Day, Mar­cus Fraser and Brett Rum­ford are just a few of the young su­per­stars of Aus­tralian Golf that have com­peted in this pres­ti­gious event, with the course record of 9-un­der 63 be­ing set by Bryden Macpher­son in the 2008 Dunes Medal.
