Vogel and Michel win district championships


The Goulburn Murray Golf Association (GMGA) golf championships were played on the superbly presented Tocumwal course in conjunction with the Tocumwal Open event, over the weekend (7 & 8 July).  In a good and strong field of players from clubs of the District, the early favourites and lowest handicap players did not disappoint with Stephanie Vogel of Cobram Barooga club and Kyle Michel, Shepparton taking the women’s and men’s championships.

Vogel returned rounds of 77 Saturday and 74 Sunday for a scratch score total of 151 for a big win over runner up Bobbette Wilkinson of Tocumwal.  In the Men’s event Kyle Michel starred on Saturday with a 68 to give him a four shot lead then with 72 on Sunday for a total of 140 he cruised through ahead of Blair Christie of Rich River who returned scores of 77 and 72 for 148.  Great golf from the winners and runners up.  Michel left Tocumwal to head to the airport for a flight to the USA to play in amateur qualifying events over the next six weeks.  The GMGA wish Kyle well and recognise the quality of golfers in the District.

In the handicap events Julie Daniels of Numurkah won the A grade women’s event with net 157 just ahead of Sue Pappas of Tocumwal 158. In B Grade Megan Carr put Mooroopna on the map with net 156 ahead of Sue Lawson of Tocumwal 158.  Balls down the line went to Petra Wilmot 159, Julie O’Brien 162, Bobbette Wilkinson 163 and on 164 Jenny Bauerle, Helen Emery, Anne Beveridge and Janie Hills.  

In the men’s handicap divisions Peter Bolt from Tocumwal won A grade with 146 to just pip Matt Miller of Hill Top Tatura 147.  In B grade Andrew Nunn of Tocumwal with the best net score of the tournament of 141 won with Jordan Bovalina of Cobram Barooga on 150 runner up. Balls down the line went to Sam Bates 150, Dylan Grandyl, Mel McKenna 153, Andrew Storer 156, and Michael Cooper 157 and on 158 Caleb Bovilina, Ben Kerr and Mark Corridan.

Next week GMGA Winter Pennant returns with only a couple of rounds to go before the final on 28 July and then the Sandscape championships will be played at Rochester on 12 August
