Win for Ford in preparation for Vic Open

Thursday, 21 February 2013

2011 Southern Trainee Championship winner Ben Ford has claimed his first win for 2013 Trainee season at the Eastwood Trainee Pro-Am.

Ford’s two under 70 was just enough to take the title with 2012 Victorian Trainee Order of Merit winner Jack Wilson coming up just one shot short with a one under 71.

“I’d like to thank Elissa Orr, the Club and the sponsors of the event for supporting the Trainees”, said Ford.

“Also thanks to the ground staff here at Eastwood Golf Club as the course was in outstanding condition”.

Both Ford and Wilson will tee it up at Thirteenth Beach this week at the Victorian Open with both receiving late starts after being listed as alternates.

After a busy few weeks playing and organising the Trainee Pro-Am, host Trainee Elissa Orr will now also set her sights on Thirteenth Beach as she prepares to compete for the Women Victorian Open Championship title.

Next week the Trainees will head to Pakenham Golf Club for the Pakenham Trainee event.
