2012 Australian Garage Supermarket Town of Nambour Open

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Michael Dean has been crowned the 2012 Town of Nambour Open Champion. Dean, a Horton Park member, fired an even par final round to clinch victory from defending champion Adam Gemmell.

A field touted not only the largest but also the strongest in the tournaments 12 year existence were greeted with fresh winds on Saturday morning which increased throughout the day. A field of 207 players including 57 visitors, many of those from outside the Sunshine Coast zone, battled blustery conditions on a hard and fast Nambour layout enhanced by the recent dry spell.

The young guns of the Sunshine Coast lead the way after day 1 with local hope Nick Drinkwater and Caloundra junior Kodie Koski carding 3 over par 71’s in the testing conditions. They were closely followed by Indooroopilly junior Christopher Crabtree and Peregian Springs member Luke Parker. It was a tightly bunched affair with 29 players within five shots of the lead at the end on the day.

A field of 195 players backed up Sunday in similar conditions and it was Headland Golf Club’s Adam Rydwanski who got the jump on the pack with a sizzling three under 31 through the front nine.  Defending champion, Adam Gemmell, had the leader in his sights and with a birdie at sixteen to Rydwanski’s water hazard induced double bogey six he could sense a repeat of last year’s success.

A three putt bogey on the par three 17th and a missed birdie opportunity on the last saw him fall one short of Michael Dean’s 141 total. Dean’s final round, tournament low, 68 included 3 birdies in his final 9 holes.

Kodie Koski followed up his first round 71 with a 72 to take the Junior Title from a fast finishing Shae Wools-Cobb.

Local member Sam Talanoa claimed a come from behind win in the Senior event with a commendable final round 74 and there was more success for the Nambour members with Ross Varley edging out Stephen “Gonzo” Bull in the 36 hole net event.
