NEW COURSE RECORD AT YASS BY JARRAD PORTER TO WIN DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIPS

Yass golfer Jarrad Porter – son of the more famous Yass golfer, Sam Porter, won the ACT-Monaro’s District Championships for 2023 on SUNDAY 17th December, on his home course at Yass, with a fantastic gross score of 63 (5 under par). Jarrad recorded 13 pars and 5 birdies and when I asked him what was his secret, his reply was — “it was just one of those days”.

This is a new course record for the competition blue course that was used on the day. The Yass Golf course was in excellent condition with mostly lush fairways and true greens. A total of 31 low-handicap golfers played in the event with 12 of them actually on +handicaps. The field included a number of current Club Champions. Understandably, this field was dominated by members from the Yass Golf Club (about a third of the field), but there were also significant representations from the Goulburn, Murrumbidgee and Yowani Golf Clubs.

Goulburn Junior Noah Bricknell also had a great round with a Gross Score of 65, also with 5 birdies, but a couple of bogies (one on each nine) resulted in him dropping to 2nd place. Gold Creek’s Paul Bright came in 3rd place with a score of 68.

This event was also the final round of the District’s 2023 Order-of–Merit Series. There were several players in the field vying for one of the top three places in both the Gross and Nett divisions

The GROSS Division of the Order-of-Merit was won by Paul Bright (Gold Creek) with Jarrad in second place and Royal Canberra’s Angelo Bourandanis in 3rd place.

The NETT Division was won by Kacper Gancarz (Yowani) from Denver Field (Yass) and Phillip Southerton (MCC).
