King crowned winner at QLD Senior Amateur

Windaroo’s Peter King has held off all challengers to reign supreme in the 2012 Senior Amateur Championships at Bribie Island Golf Club near Brisbane.

After being neck and neck all day, King pulled away over the final stages from second round co-leader Rodney Barltop (Royal Wellington) and Stefan Albinski (Mona Vale).

Knowing he needed par of better, King hit a stunning approach shot to the 18th hole, leaving him with a tap-in birdie to claim victory.

Sanctuary Cove member Barry Miles held off the fast finishing Dave Morrison (Coolangatta Tweed) to claim the Nett Championship, with Jan Borren in third.

Run in conjunction with the Amateur Championship, the Club Team Championship finished with an overseas victory, as Royal Wellington dominated from day one and never relinquished their lead to run away with a 13 shot margin over the Coolangatta Tweed 1 team.

The Walking Stick Trophy, contested by teams of 6 from Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and ACT, saw the hosts Queensland scrape home by 4 shots over 2011 champions New South Wales.

Next year’s Championship will be held at Oxley Golf Club.
