The Indented Heads nab 2023 William Buckley Classic

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.

Exciting finish at inaugural SGA Autumn Classic

Thrilling finish at Inaugural SGA Autumn Classic

AUT23__041329000_web

It was an absolutely incredible weekend at Murray Downs Resort for the Inaugural SGA Autumn Classic, held May 5-7, 2023.

While much of the country saw rainy and miserable conditions throughout the weekend, the booked-out field at Murray Downs enjoyed sunshine, great golf, plenty of laughs and heaps of camaraderie.

Despite a few chilly morning starts, the golf heated up throughout the weekend, with some stellar scoring in the Pairs Better Ball and Individual Stableford competitions.

Round 1 - Saturday

The most notable score of the day was a spectacular 41 points from Geoff Hannah. That placed him firmly atop the Singles leaderboard, with SGA's own Matthew Pitt one shot back on 40. Ben Sterck rounded out the top 3 on a very solid 38 points.

Much to the delight of Hannah and Sterck, they were also teammates in the Pairs Best Ball Competition, which (not surprisingly) saw them at the top of the board on 50 Best Ball points (!). Next best were Steve Pettit + Paul Pearce (44 points), and Drew Hallam + Al Clelland (also on 44).

Round 2 - Sunday

Round 2 was a chilly (er...FRESH) morning, which saw teams (and one car) struggle to get started. But when the sun came out, the guns came out, and there was some serious jockeying on the leaderboard.

When the final scores were tallied, the Hannah/Sterck team managed to limp over the line and squeak out an Inaugural SGA Autumn Classic victory in the Pairs comp with 85 total points, on a Countback from the fast-finishing team of Kathy Ridley and Mick David. 3rd went to Drew Hallam and Al Clelland, one shot back on 84. In 4th were Phoebe Burfield and Salli Fox (83), with four teams tied for 5th on 81.

In the Singles Overall competition, Salli Fox (74 points) pipped Mick David (72), with Lyn Mayne & Matthew Pitt equal 3rd on 67. Rounding out the top-5 were Al Clelland and Tony Grant, both on 66.

Thanks

A warm thank you to all of our players for joining us for a great weekend - you are the reason why our events are so fun and successful. Thanks, too, to the entire staff at Murray Downs Resort and the Golf Club for hosting us at your spectacular facility. Finally, a special thanks to our sponsors, Srixon Australia & New Zealand, Garmin Australia, Drummond Golf, Heathcote Winery and TCN for their generous prizes.

The William Buckley Classic Format

  • The William Buckley Classic is a 36-hole siege for teams of two playing two-ball ambrose.
  • Each team will be assigned a handicap by the organisers on the basis of official Australian handicaps and information supplied by the Bushrangers. The handicapper will be governed by a commitment to rewarding good play according to a player’s ability.

Rules:

  • Each member hits their shot, then chooses the best of the two, and continues play from there. Teams play their chosen best ball on each shot and may place their ball half a club length (about 50cms) from where the chosen ball lay, no nearer the hole. Balls must be placed in the same cut as the chosen ball. In the interests of fast play from tee to green, teams are NOT required to mark with a tee and precisely measure from the chosen ball as they play each shot. Once on the green, Bushrangers should mark near the chosen best ball so both team members play from near enough to the exact same position.
  • The event features a Rodeo Rule, which requires a minimum number of drives for each team member. Each team’s rodeo requirements will appear on their scorecard.
  • Nearest-the-Pin & Longest Drive: will be held as some usual tasty ‘side action’ between teams.

Playoffs:

  • In the event of a tie, a sudden-death playoff will be conducted. Teams play together as a twosome (taking alternate strokes playing one ball). Teams can determine the order as each member takes their first shot. This order is then continuous and carries over from one hole to the next until the playoff is decided.
