Egan claims third successive Championship

It was a big weekend of golf with the BRilliam’s Copper City Classic and Club Championships played over the Saturday and Sunday in the Men’s Golf competition.

Jay Egan is a specialist over the long format of the game and he came out the Club Championships winner after a masterful display over the 54 holes.

After leading by four shots overnight on Saturday, Egan finished with a one-over par scratch score of 214, and was a huge 15 shots clear of the second place, Mark ‘George’ Fraser on 229.

Third place went to Alec Fraser on 232.

That’s the third A Grade Championship in the past three years that Egan has won.

Previous to him, Jacob Ryan won six championships in a row.

Former eight-time champion, Craig “Porky” Dillon, who always tries to get back and support the big events, was among the field on the weekend and won the 54 net score with 209.

He was two shots clear of George Fraser on 211 and Egan on 214.

In B Grade, Scott Mayne outlasted Chris Powell to win by four shots, 280 to 284.

Greg Clark came third with 293.

In C Grade, it was Robbie Cummins first and daylight second. (After all he was the only competitor, but he played very aggressively all the same).

Nearest the Pins prizes were won on the first day by Egan on the 3rd and 15th holes; Stewart Fraser won the 7th and 8th; and George Fraser claimed the prize on the difficult 11th hole.

Jason Foster was the only Nearest the Pin winner on Sunday taking out the 8th hole prize.

The 4th Round of the Captain’s Trophy will be played on Saturday and an Individual Stableford is set down for Sunday.

The Bourke Pro-Am Open scheduled for Sunday has been cancelled.—Out of Bounds
