Young district golfers Kyle Michel and Alex Radevski came up trumps at Mooroopna Masters on Saturday.
Michel finished runner-up in the men’s 36-hole event behind Rosanna’s James Bannan, while Radevski won the women’s 36-hole scratch ahead of Sandhurst’s Adele Huggard.
Michel, who plays off +1, shot 71 in the morning session and 77 in the afternoon for a score of 148, compared to Bannan’s 70-74-144 off a handicap of +3.
Radevski (4) improved on her morning session of 81 with 77 later in the day and was two shots ahead of Huggard’s (2) 78-82-160.
Mooroopna’s Michael Haynes (8) won the 18-hole with 76 scratch ahead of Mooroopna’s Sandy Millett (8) on 82.
It was also an exciting day for Neangar Park’s Eric Barclay who hit a hole-in-one on the 146
This was the first time a 36-hole women’s competition had been held at the Mooroopna Masters and Radevski was thrilled to be the inaugural winner on her home course.
The 17-year-old said it was great to have local support behind her and thanked Jess Scapin for helping as caddie.
Radevski said she had a good back nine in the afternoon round and went one-over for the 18 holes.
‘‘It definitely felt better in the afternoon. I got a feel for the greens which I struggled with in the morning, but I think that definitely helped,’’ Radevski said.
Radevski and Huggard played in the same group, so Radevski knew how much she needed to peg back in the afternoon.
‘‘I knew I had to get three shots back on her. I started off not too good, I got a few shots back and then when we turned into the last nine I put the pressure on a bit,’’ she said.
‘‘Then I knew about the 16th hole I’d got up.’’
Sixteen-year-old Mi-chel felt he had not played as well in the afternoon, but was still happy with the result.
‘‘I was pretty happy with the score. It wasn’t easy conditions with the wind blowing,’’ Michel said.
Michel said he wanted to lower his handicap in the next 12 months, while Radevski hoped to have hers down to one or scratch.
Michel is competing in the Northern Amateur Open at Northern Golf Club this weekend, while Radevski is entered in the club championships at Huntingdale Golf Club which run the next two Sundays.
