So close for Mar­cus

The Free Press (Corowa) - - CLASSIES (03) CLASSIES - BY ROBERT MUIR

Af­ter three su­perb rounds, Corowa’s star in­ter­na­tional golfer Mar­cus Fraser slipped from equal sec­ond, one shot be­hind, to fin­ish tied 10th last Sun­day at the fa­mous St An­drews Scot­land course.

Play­ing on the Old Course in the EPGA Al­fred Dun­hill Links Cham­pi­onship, the 40-year-old was equal leader with a first round four-un­der-par 68, equal sec­ond af­ter an­other 68 and out­right sec­ond af­ter his best round of five-un­der 67, to be 13-un­der.

With a shot-gun fi­nal round start be­cause of ad­verse weather, Fraser be­gan the day from the first hole, with out­right leader, English­man Tyrell Hat­ton on 14-un­der.

Fraser’s big fan base was hop­ing for a good fin­ish. Un­for­tu­nately it wasn’t to be. A fiveover-par 77 meant an over­all, al­beit very good, to­tal of eight-un­der-par 280. Hat­ton’s fi­nal even-par-round clinched equal sec­ond place.

Den­mark’s Lu­cas Bjer­re­gaard stormed home from equal sixth to win with a five-un­der fi­nal round to fin­ish 15-un­der-par.

Ladies and ju­niors

We have had a lit­tle rest but are now back in full swing.

We wel­come back our hol­i­day mak­ers, Gra­ham and Jenny Williams, who toured the west and had a good trip but the only snag was Jen didn’t get to wear her tiger gear as her beloved Tigers did not make the grand fi­nal.

The Du­urs­mas are back from over­seas, as are the Hark­ness Fam­ily.

The ladies who went to Malden for the GV Sand/Green cham­pi­onships found the course in­ter­est­ing.

Pat Cooper did the best of the group but didn’t bring a tro­phy home.

We have a very busy Oc­to­ber - Oc­to­ber 12 is the North East Sand/Green Cham­pi­onships at Yack then Oc­to­ber 31 is their tour­na­ment, and com­ing up Oc­to­ber 17 is the Beech­worth Tour­na­ment and the clos­ing day tour­na­ment at Be­nalla is the Sally Sy­monds 4B, on Novem­ber 7.

Last Wed­nes­day was a stroke event and it was pleas­ing to see our hol­i­day girls back in ac­tion, good scores were recorded.

Re­sults: Mon­day 9 holes - P. Prescott, r/ up Hl Eg­gle­ston. Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 3 - P. Prescott 111-41-70, r/up P. Cooper 104-31-73 on c/b from N. Du­ursma. NTP on 2nd shot - P. Cooper.

Other scores - N. Du­ursma 92, J. Williams 98, H. Eg­gle­ston 105.

Un­til next week good golf­ing.

As for the ju­niors, we are back next Satur­day and we will be hav­ing an­other putting round, so hope you have been prac­tic­ing, see you at 9am on the Oc­to­ber 13.

Mar­cus Fraser fin­ished 10th in the re­cent EPGA Al­fred Dun­hill Links Cham­pi­onship.
