HUNTINGDALE’S Piper Stubbs has been crowned the 2018 Victorian Women’s Par Three champion after holding on to her round one lead to win by four strokes.
Stubbs held the overnight lead by one to defending champion Jessica Pickwick and fired a final round 58 to run out a clear winner.
Stubbs was able to improve her front nine by five strokes in round two and managed to complete the tournament without recording a single double-bogey.
Steffanie Vogel (Cobram Barooga GC) claimed the runner-up prize after shooting rounds of 63 and 59 for a total of 122.
The 15-year-old Stubbs also took out the junior (U18) championship while the junior net trophy went to Tyana Phan (Churchill-Waverley GC).
Phan provided the highlight of the tournament with her hole-in-one on the 14th.
This was a first in the tournament’s history at the Kyabram Parkland Golf Club and the Kyabram Parkland committee calculated that it had taken more than 36,000 attempts to get there.
Phan also added the A grade gross title to her collection after shooting 123 for the tournament and finishing ahead of Jessica Pickwick (Kilmore GC) on a countback. The A grade net winner was Mooroopna’s Jessica Scapin who finished with 110 off a daily handicap of 11.
The B grade gross title went to Box Hills’ Mary Walkinshaw who shot a 36-hole total of 135 and finished five clear of local member Lana McInnes.
The B grade net prize was won by Marg Henney (Mooroopna GC) who played off a daily handicap of 19 and finished with 109.
C grade honours went to Heathcote’s Dorothy Trott after finishing with a two-round total of 149 to win by two strokes over Margaret Azzopardi (Melton Valley GC).
The C grade net trophy went to Rossdale’s Suzanne Ferguson who recorded two fantastic rounds to finish with a total of 98.
The 2019 event has been confirmed for June 5-6 next year.
