Yamba Golf Club President Tony Moran joined a pretty exclusive club in Week Five of the Genesis Golf Link Cup.
In the first four weeks of the 2017 competition only one of the more than 99,000 golfers playing the event managed to accrue more than 40,000 points in a single round.
But on April 1, Tony doubled that number to two with a 51 point stableford effort that is still the talk of the club.
Anyone who plays golf knows that even in the space of two rounds it can throw up both highs and lows.
Week Four Genesis Golf Link Cup C Grade winner Suzanne Beattie can attest to this phenomenon having lost the weekly comp on a countback in Week Three before romping to national victory in Week Four.
Genesis Golf Link Cup C Grade Finalist Harry MacAskill is pretty keen to play NSW Golf Club next week but his dad, Stuart, might be even more excited about the trip.
Harry, 15, is a member at Wagga Wagga Golf Club and has only been playing for a bit over a year but his dad is a 4-marker who once played the stunning Sydney layout two decades ago.
If you want to talk hot streaks consider the run from Royal Melbourne’s Victoria Bartlett-Bragg at the beginning of Series Two of the Genesis Golf Link Cup.
Playing off nine but struggling with her game, a new driver purchase turned the 52-year-old’s confidence around and within six competition rounds she had dropped to five.
No one is more surprised to have qualified for the 2016 Genesis Golf Link Cup Final than Maffra Golf Club’s Maree Killeen.
Maree is one of the competition’s top two women not otherwise qualified and after only taking up the game last year the 61-year-old says she is staggered to be heading to Sydney next week.
