OQM drives to Winton

Winton event winners for Outback Queensland Masters Robyn Stephens and Robert Ellis.

Hometown hero Robert Ellis delivered a spectacular two-day performance to win the Winton leg of the Outback Queensland Masters at the weekend.

And with that he crowned a full Winton stage in the fourth leg of the event that combines world-class entertainment and experiences with golf over the famous western cities of the state

Ellis, who eliminates a handicap of seven, scored remarkably 26 stableford points over the nine holes of the second of the competition.

And on a day of hot competition, it turned out to be just enough to overthrow fellow Winton players Mitchell Gerahty and Trevor SciaScia, who had led 23 points together after day one.

But in addition to his opening of 18 points, Ellis & 44 total was good for the overall win with Gerahty, who had an eagle on day one and won the reckoning for the second.

In the women's division, Longreach event winner Kaylene Silvester, from Mitchell, continued her great form with 23 points in the first nine on day one.

But Silvester was unable to complete the double, late at one point by both local legend Robyn Stephens and Kerrie Rule, of Pittsworth, who rushed home, with the back-nine 22 from the previous, enough for 39 overall and a victory over countback.

Stephens, a key figure in the production of the Winton event, thanked everyone for traveling to Winton Golf Club and was very happy that she had won her first OQM jacket.

Visitors enjoyed the local tourist attractions with "dino-graves" and the Winton Opal Festival, and were then entertained by the rendition of The Man from Snowy River by Australian bush poetry champion Greg North, before the performance of the 7 Sopranos in fell under the spell
