David Golf 2IC National Final

The 9th David Golf 2IC State of Origin Challenge was played this week on the 22nd & 23rd September at Barnbougle Dunes and Lost Farm in Tasmania.

The eight finalists qualified by winning their respective state qualifying rounds which was well supported with over 90 entrants nationally.

All players enjoyed the superb weather conditions on both days. There isn’t a better place to be than Barnbougle when there is clear blue skies and very little to no wind.

Both courses were presented in terrific condition as always, and we would like to thank course Superintendent, Phil Hill. Even though the conditions were benign, everyone managed to struggle at times with the challenges the courses present.

The combined team of Sam Smith from SA and John Hackett from WA took out the title for the 2nd time, with an aggregate stableford score of 70 points.

The format was the best stableford score aggregate from each day.

NSW finished second on 68 points which was a great effort since Shay Tasker unfortunately had to withdraw at the last moment, leaving Simon Porter to battle for NSW on his own.

It looked like Simon was going to be a runaway winner on his own with a great 41 points in the first round. Victoria came in third with 65 points, and Qld bought up the rear with 61 points.

The winning team of Sam and John have each won a $1,000 credit for their respective clubs to spend on David Golf products.

Other winners::

Barnbougle Dunes::

  • NTP – 7th hole: Simon Porter (NSW). 13th hole: Daniel Stack (Qld).

Lost Farm::

  • Long Drive – 10th hole: Geoff Tandy (Vic).

David Golf would like to congratulate all the winners, and thank the 2IC’s for their continued support in this popular event. It provides a great opportunity for 2IC’s to meet their peers locally and nationally and hopefully build long term relationships.

We would also like to thank Barnbougle  Dunes for hosting this year’s event.

Look forward to seeing you all next year for the 10th running of the David Golf 2IC Challenge.
