YMGCR 18 Hole Ladies

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Sport -

Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala Golf Club’s Trainee Pro­fes­sional Golfer Frazer Droop has had a dream start to his trainee pro­fes­sional ca­reer.

After Droop won the ex­tremely pres­ti­gious 72 hole Dunes Medal at the Dunes Golf Club on the Morn­ing­ton Penin­sula in Novem­ber 2016 he made the de­ci­sion to turn pro­fes­sional and started a trainee­ship un­der the guid­ance of his fa­ther Evan.

Since tak­ing the step to play for pay Frazer has amassed a num­ber of wins on the trainee cir­cuit plac­ing him on top of the Or­der of Merit for all Aus­tralian PGA Trainees. This is quite an achieve­ment for some­one in their first year.

Be­cause of this, Frazer was in­vited to play the North­ern Ter­ri­tory PGA Open Cham­pi­onship.

The ex­pe­ri­ence of play­ing in such a tour­na­ment will def­i­nitely ben­e­fit the young trainee, es­pe­cially play­ing 72 hole in the North­ern Ter­ri­tory heat, and will hold him in good stead for when he plays in hot hu­mid con­di­tions not com­mon in Yar­ra­wonga. September Tour­na­ment Sun­day, September 10 to Fri­day, September 15. Still some spa­ces left and this year for mem­bers it’s only $15 per day or $130 for 5 days of golf, wel­come buf­fet din­ner, of­fi­cial pre­sen­ta­tion din­ner, a short game clinic and a $25 club­house/Pro shop voucher.
