SGA Tour (Vic) - Sandhurst North Course - Feb 8 2015

The 3rd Victorian SGA Tour event for 2015 was held at Sandhurst North Course with players competing for over $600 of prizes and Tour members playing for Order of Merit points. Thanks to Social Golf Australia sponsors Golf Clearance Outlet, Gifte gift cards, Srixon, Inside Golf magazine, That's My Ball, Heathcote Winery and bwired and to Kieser Golf Training for being the Vic Tour Event Sponsor and contributing to the prize pool for the day. In the photo above we see SGA Tour legend Diesal Dave Warwick enjoying his day as always and heading for a a very respectable fifth place finish with 40 stableford points.

The event featured overcast but generally fine and mild weather weather with very little breeze that proved great for scoring on a well presented golf course. In the finish, 13 players in the field managed to break nett par and another five played to their handicaps with 36 points. New Tour player Brad Gibson took the bikkies playing a blinding round in his debut SGA Tour event to score a superb 44 points. Tour Member Paul Himarios was second with 42 nudging Dave Pollock, also with 42, into third place on countback. Two shots further back we have four players on 40 points also separated on countback with Alan Abbes, Dave Warwick, Matthew Thomas and Rod Tozer filling 4th, 5th, 6th & 7th places respectively. Above we see one of the great characters of The Tour, Jimmy Lantides, looking stylish as he admires his handy-work with a niblick from the fairway.

We were pleased to welcome 11 new players for their first Victorian SGA Tour event: Jovan Selvaratnam, Leo O'Gorman, Denis Mallet, Brad Gibson, Chris O'Reilly, James Meredith, Adrian Smithwick, Ray Smithwick, Andrew Comb, Richard Dolphin and Simon Dolphin. Above we see 2014 Order of Merit winner Steve Morrison tending the pin on the tough par four 6th hole and in the photo below we see one of the toughest competitors on The Tour, the pocket-dynamo Yvonne Yip in full flight hitting her drive on the par four 1st hole.

Note that for the Order of Merit there are no countbacks and Tour members tied on the same score each receive the same OOM points. A player needs to join as a Member of the SGA Tour before receiving OOM points at an event. For info on Tour Membership, see the About the Tour page. At the start of the year, we will withhold allocating OOM points until after the third event and all players who are Tour Members at that time will receive retrospective OOM points for the first three events. From then on, a player needs to join the Tour before receiving OOM points at an event. Below we see SGA Tour regular Pete Solomou enjoying his day and goofing off with the paparazzi while Tomm Cassidy has a lash at a long putt in the background. In the bottom photo we see Tour player Craig Lonsdale doing a great job holing out a Danny De Vito........a nasty little five-footer.
