Posted by on   /   Posted in golf news

David Micheluzzi on his way to two victories at Huntingdale today.

Defending men's champion David Micheluzzi has kept his chances of back-to-back victories in the Victorian Amateur at Huntingdale Golf Club alive, but defending champion Stephanie Bunque is out.

Micheluzzi, 22, moved to the quarter-finals after winning both his matches in the match-play section today

Micheluzzi from Metropolitan rejected Darcy Brereton 3 and 1 from Royal Melbourne in the morning and then defeated Ryan Thomas from Yarra Yarra four and three in the afternoon. He is the best placed player after this week's strokeplay winner, Sydney & # 39; s Christopher Fan, was defeated in the first match play game this morning.

Micheluzzi has had a sensational 2018 in which he finished second in the national amateur championship in Perth and the equivalent amateur at the Emirates Australian Open in Sydney.

The Victorian is the number 10 amateur in the world, a former winner of the Master of the Amateurs, and is expected to become professional next year. "I played well in the morning, but much better in the afternoon," he said afterwards. "Saved it in the game."

He plays Konrad Ciupek of Victoria in the quarterfinals of tomorrow.

New Zealander Jordan Woodall was an impressive winner this afternoon, eight and six above Curtis Lawrence of Victoria, while Australian amateur champion of 2017 Matias Sanchez of Victoria was ousted by Andre Lautee of Kingston Heath, four and two.

Meanwhile, Bunque was the second in the strokeplay section in the ladies' center, but was beaten one-on-one in the match-play by Hye Park from Queensland.

Port Phillip Amateur winner Min Yoon from South Korea continues her dominance of the women's championship and defeats Jen Goh from Singapore four and three today. The 15-year-old Yoon meets Siyi Keh in New Zealand tomorrow in a quarter final.

Overseas players have a strong hand in the ladies quarterfinals, with Yuka Saso of the Philippines, the gold medal of the Asian Games in 2018, in which veteran Victorian Sue Wooster beat three and two today.

Western Australians Kirsten Rudgeley and Maddison Hinson-Tolchard, 16, both gained a strong victory in their round of 16 games and look good. "I played golf regularly and did not do much wrong", said Hinson-Tolchard. "It's the first time I've played the event, it was such a great week." & # 39;

The 15-year-old Gold Coast sensation Park, which plays Royal Pines, is also in the quarter-finals and will certainly attract some attention.
