2020 Lexus of Parramatta Golf Invitational - Pennant Hills Golf Club - Friday 25th Sept
The first of two Lexus of Parramatta Golf Invitationals was held at Pennant Hills Golf Club under clear skies but very windy conditions. The beautiful course was extremely well presented and that would no doubt lead to some great scores, especially with Lexus Golf Ambassador, Dimi Papadatos hitting drives on the 1st hole.
Scoring was extremely close, with five teams within a shot of the winning score. The third placed team of Michael Lenart, Sonia Lenart, Robert De Lucchi & Trent Doughty had a steady start and were three under par through eleven holes, however they couldn't quite finish it off, with only two more birdies and a bogey to miss out on the runners up spot by 0.25 with a nett 53.62. The runners up were the same margin short of the winning score (0.25) when they finished with nett 53.37 after a fantastic score of 62. They had a great start with five birdies in their first ten holes. The tough par 4 2nd hole proved to be their undoing with a bogey, although they did manage another three birdies before the finish - well played John Yoon, Matthew Dixon, Dan Hinkson & Cameron Sinclair. The winners were cruising along with seven birdies on their card (including four in a row), but decided to make it interesting by bogeying their second last hole to finish with nett 53.12. That meant an extremely small victory margin, but a victory is a victory! Congratulations to Dean Watson (10), David Kelly (18), Surasak Dou (24) & Ken Smith (27).
