Day three of the WA Amateur is in the books and it was busy and full of action. The conditions were great in the morning with the wind steadily as the day progressed.
The course continues to play well and rewards good shot-making. Impressive rounds from Haydn Barron and Connor McKinney proved that there are enough birdies if you play well.
Results women quarterfinals
Kathryn Norris def Brooke Price (4 & 3)
Kathryn Norris (MCC) continued her good form after finishing the lettuce grounds in the highest position. The scores were very early in her quarter-final match against Brooke Price (RPGC), but the form and class of Norris shone through and she missed a winner.
Shannon Tan def Georgia Shears (3 & 1)
The diminutive Tan (QLD) was too strong for the local Georgia Shears of Wanneroo. Despite her small size, Tan aggressively attacks the track and hits a long ball. Shears tried to make a late move but a quirky ride at 17 sealed her destiny and gave Tan the win.
Abbie Teasdale def Sasha Hofman (5 & 4)
The 2018 champion was too strong for Hofman (GGC) and played a decisive victory. Abbie Teasdale (RFGC) plays good golf and seems to have a strong chance of defending her title.
Kirsten Rudgeley def Madison Large (4 & 3)
Kirsten Rudgeley (MLGC) had a good day and ended it with a convincing win over Madison Large (JCC). The matchup on Saturday between Rudgeley and Teasdale is a hot meeting and one to keep an eye on.
Men's round 16 results
Haydn Barron def Hayden Hopewell (5 & 4)
Haydn Barron (WAGC) was in phenomenal form and made birds left, right and in the middle. Hayden Hopewell (RFGC) played well and was even the card for most of the round, but he could not match the birds made by Barron.
Haydn Barron has been one of the players in the field so far this week and is a real contender for Sunday's final.
Donovan Lee def Ben Croft (2 & 1)
Lee (VIC) and Croft (JCC) fought a tight game all afternoon where neither player let the other get too much of an advantage. Lee got out in the middle of the round and eventually won the race on the 17th hole.
Brendon Allanby def Matthew Bowra (2 & 1)
Allanby (RFGC) and Bowra (LKCC) had a fight all afternoon and didn't want to be the first to stumble. Allanby eventually won 2 & 1 and is on its way to Saturday in good shape. Keep an eye on Allanby, he is the silent assassin who quietly takes his course in the field.
Connor McKinney def Michael Hanrahan Smith (3 & 2)
The Scot, Connor Mckinney (JCC) has so far put together three solid days of golf and this continued until Friday afternoon when he enjoyed a 3 & 2 win over Michael Hanrahan Smith (CGC).
McKinney started his afternoon round earlier than the rest of the competition and was back in the clubhouse much earlier than the competition. This extra rest this afternoon can be important if players start to beat after three long days of golf.
Azer Pehlic def Paul Patterson (4 & 3)
Pehlic (MLGC) was too strong for Patterson (CGC) and eased to a 4 & 3 victory. The dreams of a quarter finals of father and son have been crushed, with both Paul and Jack Patterson (CGC) eliminated on Friday afternoon.
Adam Brady def Jack Patterson (3 & 2)
Adam Brady (VGCC) played solid golf all afternoon and was able to survive Jack Patterson (CGC). Brady is now confronted with Pehlic for a place in the semi-final on Saturday afternoon.
Josh Greer def Joseph Owen (5 & 4)
Greer (JCC) may have planed & # 39; in the morning, but he turned on the rays in the afternoon and was too strong for Owen (LKCC). Greer will now compete against Connor Fewkes and will have to continue his good form if he wants to continue.
Connor Fewkes def Naraajie Ramadhanputra (3 & 2)
Fewkes (Goldfields) was better than Ramadhanputra (Indonesia) in their afternoon game. Scores were the same when they made the turn, but Fewkes quickly called in the afterburners and pulled away to a 3 & 2 victory.
The promotion at Wanneroo continues tomorrow with the women playing their semi-final in the morning. The men have to play another 36 holes with the quarterfinals in the morning and the semifinals in the afternoon.
