PGA Trainee Professional Frazer Droop and PGA Professional Adrian Percey have a share in one million Qantas Points courtesy of the Qantas Golf Club One Million Qantas Points Hole-in-One promotion during the 2017 ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia season.
Droop, who was making his first appearance in a state PGA Championship during the Northern Territory leg, couldn’t wipe the smile off his face after hitting his ace at Palmerston Golf Course during the second round of the tournament.
“It was the 7th hole this morning I was 2-under going nicely in my round and got to the short par-3 7th, 106m it was a perfect full sand iron for me,” Droop recalled.
“I just knocked it out a little bit left of the hole and it was shaping itself back in, it took one bounce and a little bit of side spin then straight in to the hole.”
Not to be outdone, Percey went on to ace the same par-3 7th later in the day to stake a claim in the one million Qantas Points.
“It was 101m shortish par-3, playing off the front tees. A little three quarter wedge and slam dunk, it went straight in the cup,” said Percey, who already has plans for his points.
“I am excited, it’s a big bonus. I might do a few short trips around Australia, some nice long weekends.”
Droop and Percey now split the one million Qantas Points three-ways after Terry Pilkadaris took his share with a hole-in-one during the Coca-Cola QLD PGA Championship in March earlier this year.
PGA of Australia Professionals have two more chances to stake a claim with the two remaining rounds of the Northern Territory PGA Championship.
