Golfers win their way to national finals
Five local golfers from Woy Woy have won their way through to the national finals of a golf scramble to take place on the Sunshine Coast in May.
After qualifying at their local event earlier in the season, the team from Everglades Country Club, led by Professional Golfers' Association player Darren Chivas and amateurs Jason Clifford, Trent Mullen, James Sharpe and Jaben Ryan, combined for a score of 52.1 to take out the regional final at Kooindah Waters Golf Club on March 2.
The team will now travel to the Twin Waters Golf Club to compete in the final from May 1 to 4.
"We were really pleased with the result," said Darren Chivas.
"It feels like someone is watching over me now that we have gone back to back.
"Hopefully, this time we will achieve some success and get a win," Chivas said.
The amateur players are also no strangers to the scramble format.
"Jason, James and I have been playing together for six years now, working hard to qualifying through to the championship final."
The finals teams will have four days of golf played in full tournament conditions, with three social functions.
Only 28 teams, from a total of 7500 nationally, have won their way to the championship final.
