Indented Heads nab 2023 William Buckley Classic
The 2023 William Buckley Classic featured a Battle Royale as golfers from across the country descended upon 13th Beach GC for the 18th running of this event.
Mother Nature proved to be the toughest opponent throughout the weekend, as she greeted our players with howling winds, rain, chilly temperatures and even an early morning earthquake to the Bellarine Peninsula.
But the magnitude 5.1 tremor wasn't the only earth-shattering event on the Sunday, as a pair of newcomers to SGA made the earth move under their feet as they stormed home to a one-point victory over the field.
Congratulations to The Indented Heads (Andrew Murray & Brett Murray), whose 2-day total of 86 Stableford points (rounds of 46 + 40), edged them one point ahead of a crowded leaderboard, which saw the top 6 teams separated by only 4 points. They pipped The Point Addis Bashers (Jarrad Young & Grant Nuttall), and The Barwon Heads Sir Robins (Chris Moody & Rusty Dent) on 85 points. Rounding out the top-6 were The Murrangurk Masters (Ian Steer & Cam Thompson) on 84, The Point Lonsdale Cavemen (John Brugman & Rob Lugton) on 84, and The Bream Creek Freaks (Matt Pitt & Mick David) on 82 points.
