YMGCR 18 Hole Ladies
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.
