“It’s a great tournament, a lot of fun coming out and seeing these blokes every year, thanks Narrogin, see you in Augusta” said Davey after claiming his fifth title.
Ryan Peake came to Narrogin seeking a hat trick after winning the past two Sand Green Championships, however he was unable to overcome a slow start yesterday despite his 71 today. Peake had shown a strong form line leading in after taking out the State Foursomes Championship only a week ago at his home club Lakelands. Harvey’s Michael Lucas started strongly on Saturday but was unable to carry that form through Sunday finishing with a disappointing 80.
“My game never suited right doglegs and this course is full of them, it’s a tough little course”. Peake said, after rescuing a shot out of the rough.
Leading the pack that chased Davey hard all of Sunday were usual Sand Green suspects Rod Shemeld and Tim Gilotti. Shemeld playing an outstanding shot out of the rough on the 16th to save par and keep the pressure on Davey heading into the final two holes.
Adam Davey has now won the second most Sand Green Championship titles behind Royal Perth’s Michael Dennis who won six titles. Davey will look to tie that record next year when we head to Augusta on the 11th – 14th of August.
