2022 Lexus of Cairns Golf Invitational - Palmer Sea Reef

The Lexus of Cairns Golf Invitational was held at the beautiful Palmer Sea Reef Golf Club at Port Douglas. A poor forecast for the day didn't scare too many guests away and despite a few heavy showers early on, the day turned out to be quite pleasant for all. The soft conditions however, would mean the course was playing longer than usual and that would make scoring tough. 

In the end it was extremely close with just 0.25 of a shot separating the top two teams and all three on the podium shooting the same gross score of 68. The third placed team of Michael Wright, David Bruce, Brad Snow & Sasha Snow started steadily to be one under after nine holes - taking full advantage of the charity hole on the 3rd. Two more birdies would follow on the back nine to give them nett 58.25 and consolidate third place. The runners up were two shots clear of third and if not for one more putt, they would have taken out the main prize. They had a great start to be three under after three holes, but some bogeys quickly followed until three straight birdies got their round back on track. Well played, Michael Kim, Chohee Kim, Bruce Lee & Lucy Kim who finished with nett 56.25. The winners had a slow start to the day to be two over par after three holes, but then something clicked and they played the next twelve holes in six under par, before having the luxury of another bogey on their final hole to take the win. Congratulations Jodie Davey (27), Irene O'Keefe (27), Chris Marsh (27) & Peter Douglas (15) who finished with nett 56. For the full results from the day, please click on the button below - 'Download All Results'.
