NQ GOLFER SNARES HOLE- IN- ONE AUDI

Townsville Bulletin - - FRONT PAGE - LIAM BUT­TER­WORTH

DAVID Men­zies’ one in a mil­lion shot has scored him a brand new Audi car.

Men­zies, 37, be­came the first per­son in Aus­tralia to win a car in the Audi Qu­at­tro Cup with a hole- in- one on the 11th at Wil­lows Golf Re­sort yesterday af­ter­noon.

The Wil­lows mem­ber only scored an in­vite to the event for Audi own­ers through friend James Davies but walks away with a $ 40,000 car thanks to his first ever hole- in- one.

“It was 140m, down wind and I was try­ing to get it close re­ally,” Men­zies said.

“I put it up there and I thought it was short and it rolled down and then all of sud­den these two fel­las down the end were yelling and cheer­ing and car­ry­ing on.

“I thought they were jok- ing with me and then I went down there and found out it was in the hole.

“I didn’t be­lieve it was my ball, I went down and saw it was and went bal­lis­tic.”

Dou­bles team Phil Schu-umacher and John Partlett were also on a high yesterday, win­ning the cor­po­rate event with 40 points to se­cure a spot at the na­tional fi­nal at the Cap­i­tal Golf Club in Mel­bourne in Oc­to­ber.
