Kodi Louis (formerly a District Representative and from Nambour Golf Club, now Yeppoon ) has outclassed his rivals with a final round 66 to claim the 2014 Queensland Indigenous Championship at Murgon Golf Club.Louis and Craig Dodd (Blackwater) went into the final round locked on 3-under, however after nine holes today, Louis had jumped out to a 2-shot lead.
A costly bogey on the 14th put pay to any final charge by Dodd and despite a nervous 3 putt bogey on the penultimate hole, Louis closed out in style with a birdie 3 on the 72nd.
Making his first visit to Murgon for the Championships, Louis commented on the warm welcome he had received and is already planning his 2015 trip.
When told of the additional prize of a place in the Isuzu Queensland Open Pro Am to be held at Brookwater Golf and Country Club, Louis couldn't hide his excitement. "To have the opportunity to tee it up with the big boys and see how they play is going to be amazing," he said.
Joining Louis in the Pro Am is the Championship runner-up and overall Nett winner Dodd. Playing off a handicap of 5, Dodd was an impressive 18 under for the weekend.
Whilst initially disappointed at letting the Championship slip, Dodd's mood significantly lifted when told he too would be playing the Pro Am.
A field of three contested the Women's Division of the Championship with Kimberley Crawley (Horton Park) claiming the win after impressive rounds of 81, 77 and 72.
Runner up was Ashleigh Hay (Burleigh), with Regina Hussey (Rowes Bay) returning the best nett score.
