2020 Lexus of Newcastle Golf Invitational - The Vintage Golf Club
The Lexus of Newcastle Golf Invitational was held at The Vintage Golf Club under perfect conditions. The greens were rolling quickly and teams would have to be aware of putting getting away from them if they were misjudged.
The third placed team had a fantastic start and were four under par through eight holes, however they couldn't quite finish it off and had two birdies in their closing ten holes together with four bogeys. Finishing with a nett 56.25 and just less than a shot from the runners up were Todd Raysmith, Garry Wood, Philip Russell & Kay Russell. The runners up fell just over a shot shy of the winning score when they finished with nett 55.33 after a score of 66. They started par, bogey and that was clearly enough to spur them on as they had five birdies in their next six holes. Unfortunately they couldn't keep that run going and only managed one more birdie on their way home. Well played to the three ball team of Mark Braddish, Richard Whibley & Adrian Christie. The winners shot the equal lowest score of the day, a 64 but they didn't have it all their own way when they recorded a dreaded bogey on their very first hole. Thankfully for them, that bogey was followed by eight birdies to secure the victory with nett 54 - congratulations to Rod Vaughan (16), David Bradshaw (25), Bruce Chambers (18) & Jennifer Chambers (21).
