Scott & Senior tee it up with QLD Trainees

Monday, 14 January 2013

Both legendary players were happy to give up their time to assist in making the event a memorable one for the next generation of PGA professionals who no doubt have looked up to both as role models hoping that one day they too can have as much success.

‘It’s unbelievable that both of them could be out there with us today” said Sanctuary Cove trainee Luke Ryan who did much of the organisation for the event. “Adam was happy to give up his time and this generosity was really well received by all the trainees.”

The day began with an orientation and welcome for the trainees who are about to embark on another year on their journey to become PGA professionals. Starting their time were twenty three first year trainees who were excited about beginning their careers in the golf industry. PGA Chairman Mark Gibson and PGA Queensland Division Chairman Len Beck were on hand to provide some of their knowledge and advice.

With 66 trainees competing in the event, blustery conditions challenged the players who struggled at times on the Palms course. With everyone seeing how they would match up against Scott and Senior it was Pacific Harbour Trainee Zac Chipperfield who had the winning round of 1 under for the round.

“I must admit there was some luck involved but I was holing the important putts was what got me across the line” said Chipperfield. “Knowing Adam Scott was the only other player under par gives me a lot of confidence in my game”

The Queensland trainees will be playing regular Monday events throughout 2013 and are hoping that they may get a chance to have other key players join them at some stage.
