In addition to winning the sweepstakes event Wilcox will be offered the opportunity to compete alongside some of the country’s most elite players in the Portsea Pro-Am on Wednesday 2nd January.

Just behind Wilcox was Phillip Island Golf Club’s Ben Weatherly at 4-under and Port Fairy’s Dylan O’keeffe at 3-under the card.

Kingswood Golf Clubs’s Jack Wilson was also able to defend his title taking out the CPM Victorian Trainee Order of Merit for the second year in a row.

“Thanks to CPM and everyone that’s supported the Trainees throughout the year, I’m really happy to have defended my title,” said Wilson.

Wilson blitzed the rest of the field by 57 points in a year that included a divisional championship title and four Trainee event wins.

This being the final event in Victoria, for many it was the last event they’ll play before they graduate into full Membership on the 1st January 2013, for others it’s tools down until the new season kicks off on Monday 21st January at Mornington Golf Club.
