CONGRATULATIONS: Joey Savoie shakes hands with his play partners Josh Armstrong, right and Callan Barrow.

Canadain Joey Savoie honored medal winners this afternoon in the NSW Amateur Championship at Terrey Hills Golf and Country Club.

The 24-year-old fired a two-under-par 70 to finish his 64th round at Mona Vale Golf Club with his track record to finish in ten under par. In the second place, three shots came in, Castle HIll & # 39; s Jordie Garner, whose 69 was the best score for the morning.

SPASH: Joey Savoie makes a firm sand on the last one.

Jed Morgan, second in the NSW Amateur of 2018, and Lucas Higgins of Murwillumbah finished for a third time right away for the third time.

Savoie was never really challenged during the final round, although his play partners, Josh Armstong from Canberra and Callan Barrow from England were busy all afternoon.

Armstrong was up to six substandard in one stage and seemed capable of putting the Canadian under pressure over the closing holes. However, a few late bogies and a triple on the 8th (his 17th) ended his search.

Savoie was enthusiastic about the performance afterwards, which he admitted was a bit of a roller coaster ride.

"I felt like it was a bit like the story of Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde.

"Yesterday was good ball striking, it felt like an easy 64. It felt like I did not have to work, but I had to work very hard today for that 70", he said.

Savoie, from Quebec, is on its second trip down and clearly enjoys its wave despite the unknown heat.

"Well, you know, all courses are drastically different, and it is rather difficult to acclimatise to the weather.

"Sydney is different from Melbourne, and this was the first hot trip, it was pretty hot today

He is looking forward to the game and has already gained a lot of experience." Savoie already has four gigs in the American Amateur, as well as a growing list of international titles on his resume.

"I won a tournament in Argentina and one in New Zealand, I made the Matchplay at Riviera (in 2017) but was defeated last year in a playoff for the last spot.

Savoie is looking forward to the match play rounds start that morning and said that the trick would find its lines the tee.

It was my first round today. I did not have a practice lap and did not feel at ease from the tee.

"If I can find that I feel you can be aggressive with some second shots.

"It's a nice layout, a beautiful golf course, the wind might be a bit tricky, but I'm looking forward to the game tomorrow.

"It's going to be great fun."


CHAMPIONSHIP FOR LADIES: Emily Toy has the women's championship at Mona Vale

Emily Toy from England has claimed the Women & # 39; s NSW 36 Hole Strokeplay Championship after firing a three-under-par 70 at Mona Vale Golf Club this afternoon.

Toy during her first trip down six birdies and three bogeys around the tight sea layout to win with a shot from Carmen Lim from New Zealand and the leader of the first round, Min A Yoon, who only had a three -over par 76 could play.

A five-to-one play-off was required for last place in the match-play rounds, with Sarah Lee of Queensland taking the last spot after he had screwed a leg of 20 feet for birdie on the first playoff hole
