Harrison Crowe Blows Rivals Away at Bonville

(12:45pm - Friday 7th December 2018)

Harrison Crowe (St Michael's) has proved too strong for his rivals at the 2018 Bonville Champions Trophy, running away with the tournament to win by eight shots.

Starting the final round with a two shot lead Crowe only need to be solid on Friday, and he was just that, picking up three shots and making just one bogey on his way to a final round 69. Crowe took control of the tournament late on the opening day where he played his last 10 holes in seven under par and was never headed from that moment on. Impressive youngster Jeffrey Guan (The Australian) rallied on Friday with a final round 68 to move into a share of second with Lachlan Jones (Concord), who saw his chances splash when he found the water on his way to a triple bogey seven on the 12th.

Guan and Jones finished four shots clear of the much improved Eddie Ward (Kiama), who shot super consistent rounds of 71-72-71-72 to be all alone in fourth position, one shot clear of opening round leader Josh Robards who bounced back with a one under par 70 in the final round.

One shot ahead playing the last, Ji hit two superb shots into the par five 18th, setting up a two-putt birdie to extend her lead back to two shots. Yip, looking at the leaderboard update as she came around the corner saw the red number go up and realised she had to hole out for eagle to force a playoff.

13 Year Old Shin finished in third place, her course record 65 in the second being the first of many highlights in her JNJG career.
