Jacob Boyce and Patrick Joseph have qualified for the PGA Professionals Championship to be held at Hamilton Island Golf Club from 20-22 November 2018.
Competing in the North Queensland qualifying event at Townsville Golf Club, the duo fired rounds of 71 to claim the two positions in the prestigious tournament.
Boyce came into qualifying in excellent form having finished fourth in the Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series event the day prior to qualifying.
“The start of this year has been quite a rollercoaster travelling between here and Asia. I have put together some good results and this certainly gives me something to focus on,” said Boyce.
“Playing for $55,000 in prize money at Hamilton Island is one thing but the big carrot for me is the two positions on offer into the Australian PGA Championship at RACV Royal Pines Resort.”
A last-minute decision to tee it up in the qualifying tournament proved fruitful for Joseph.
“It has been really cold down in New South Wales so to come up to the beautiful North Queensland weather was too enticing and now I have qualified for Hamilton Island, I am really glad I made the trip,” said Boyce.
