KIWI PAIR CLOSE TO QUEENSLAND PGA TITLE

17/02/2020

Michael Hendry and Chang Gi Lee came within a shot of the playoff that decided the Coca-Cola Queensland PGA Championship held at City Golf Club in Toowoomba over the weekend.

The pair finished 11-under after four rounds which left them agonisingly close to joining Michael Sim and Scott Arnold in the playoff to decide the title where Michael Sim came out victorious.

Hendry fired rounds of 69, 65, 67, and 68 to find himself in contention once again. He found himself right in the mix with a hole to go, only to finish with a bogey to come up just shy. The bogey was only his second blemish of the day in an otherwise stellar round.

His fellow North Harbour professional Chang Gi Lee also showed he knows how to perform on the big stage. He carded rounds of 67, 67, 66, and 69 to also fall short of his maiden victory on the Australasian Tour.

Rounding out the top-10 was Denzel Ieremia who continue to impress in just his second year as a professional. He finished in a tie for seventh place a further shot back at 10-under for the tournament after rounds of 66, 69, 65, and 70.

On the European Challenge Tour, Daniel Hillier has finished in a tie for eighth at the Data Dimensions Pro-Am at Fancourt Golf Estate in South Africa.

The rookie professional carded rounds of 65, 68, 71, and 71 to finish at 14-under for the tournament.

Finally, Tae Koh has performed well under some of golf’s most extreme pressures to gain his Asian Tour card for 2020.

The Auckland based professional has finished at 10-under par at Asian Tour Qualifying School to finish is a tie for 10th place to earn playing rights on the Asian Tour.
