Wentworth leads final of nation's largest pro-am event
GOLF: Wentworth Golf Club heads into the third and final round of the Holden Scramble Championship Final at Twin Waters on Monday with a one-shot lead over Deniliquin.
It was back-to-back eagles on day two which helped the team into prime position.
"We got off to a bit of a slow start and then it all clicked,” the club's head professional Todd Brakenridge said in an event press release.
Starting on the back nine, things went somewhat pear shaped with a bogey on hole 17 but the team rebounded in the next two holes, with consecutive birdies.
His side shot a score of 50 after an opening round of 51.
"We feel like we didn't play as good as we did yesterday, however made some really good putts so have got ourselves into a good position,” he said.
The leading 12 mixed and three women's teams will play their final round with a PGA Touring Professional in addition to being joined on the 17th hole by three time European Tour Winner and Australian Olympian Marcus Fraser.
Balaklava Golf Club leads the six-team women's event after a second straight round of 54.8.
The team members are looking forward to catching up with Fraser.
"As soon as the ladies found out that he was going to be part of the event they were over the moon,” said Chris Duke, Balaklava representative PGA Professional.
