Taylor Macdonald was second at 5-under-par after the overnight leader carded a final round of 69 to follow earlier rounds of 68-66-76.

James Gibellini continued with his fine run of form after a top-10 finish at last week’s Keperra Bowl, finishing in third position at 3-under-par, two strokes ahead of Blake McGrory.

The leading sixteen players will play at the Pacific Harbour Golf Club on Bribie Island in elimination match-play for the Queensland Amateur Championship beginning on Thursday.
