2020 Huon Valley Mens Open

Friends rally to support Tasmanian champion.

With a star studded line-up, including many current and former State players, the golfing event of the year for the Huon Valley Golf Club was always going to be full of excitement with 108 players from across Tasmania and interstate. Everybody was at the Huon Valley Open to play in the Toogood Trophy event and to support local champion Bill “Whippy” Wellington, and with a trophy named in his honour everybody was looking to win.

The first days play saw northern golfing star Craig Hancock and southerner Nathan Gatehouse battle it out to finish joint leaders at 3 under par at the end of the days play. Many contenders were battling it out at around par including local Huon Valley member and multiple Club Champion Adrian Butt.

On the final days play conditions deteriorated slightly with the winds making it increasingly difficult in the afternoon. The par 5s were playing short and provided a chance for the lower handicappers to make up ground on the leaders. Unfortunately Gatehouse succumbed to the conditions posting a 73 and taking him out of contention for the trophy.  A late chase by Wynyard’s Brayden Field, carding an impressive total of 9 birdies, put him in the clubhouse as the early leader at 4 under par for the event and put pressure on the last group as they finished down the final short par 5.  Paul Read had a short putt for the win, and all eyes were on Andrew Phillips as he putted for eagle and the chance to join Read in a  playoff. Phillips agonisingly missed the putt and handed the championship to Paul Read with a 36 hole tournament total of 6 under par.

In Reads speech he mentioned what an honour it was to have his name on a trophy that is named after golfing icon Bill Wellington who holds an impressive state championship record and a total of 23 club championships between Tasmania and Lindisfarne Golf Clubs.

In the Net event, good conditions left the door open for posting some very impressive Net scores. Locals Reece Polley and Stacey Wooley, together with Royal Hobart’s Jeremy Morris, were leading contenders going into the second days play. An impressive final round meant that nobody was catching Morris who posting a gross total of 2 over par and a net total of 10 under par for the event. Morris also said that he felt very privileged to have won an even named after Bill Wellington.

Tasmania Golf Club will also be holding the Bill Wellington Lindisfarne Cup on the 1st and 2nd February.
