Young golfers ready for tournament
AN outstanding quality field of junior golfers is ready for this weekend’s Adina Watches junior tournament at Coffs Harbour Golf Club. Nearly 70 outstanding players are preparing to play tomorrow and Monday in the 36-hole event.
The field size has been helped by the inclusion of 30 players from the Hills Golf Academy in Queensland as well as other single-figure golfers from the Tablelands and coastal areas.
The Adina Watches name has adorned the tournament since it was first played in 1996 but this year Donaldson’s Jewellery has come on board as the primary sponsor.
Since Jason Day won his inaugural event on the USPGA tour last month at the Byron Nelson, the Adina tournament has been given extra prestige considering Day won twice in Coffs Harbour back in 2003 and 2004.
The chances of a local winning the tournament this year are strong as Coffs Harbour’s contingent of Brandon Conner, Aden Louez, Sagi Wiguna, last year’s runner-up Mitch McComas and Jake Vidler are all considered good hopes of featuring on the leaderboard.
