Rockingham Golf Club 2020 Handiskins Championship
Johannes Schoonbee proves his sizzling qualifying rounds were no fluke when he took out Rockingham Golf Clubs inaugural Handiskins championship.
After completing the first 9 holes without a skin to his name, Schoonbee had to draw on his mental strength to storm home on the big-money holes to outlousst father and son duo Stephen and Dean Quinn, and fellow finalist Anthony Joyce.
It was the first year that Handiskins has been played at the great club, and the finalists were a little nervous to see a gallery forming to follow them around the course to watch every pressure putt of this $1200 final. Club spokesperson Margie Harris said "It was an exciting day. There is definitely a lot of members looking forward to our next Handiskins event after seeing the drama unfold on the course today".
Results from the day saw Johannes Schoonbee pocket $540 of the $1,200 on offer. Father and son combination Stephen Quinn $300 and Dean Quinn $200 came next and Anthony Joyce $160.
Well done guys, we hope to see you at the Handiskins National Championship at RACV Royal Pines in 2021 on the Gold Coast.
All four finalists received a Bridgestone Golf Cap and fought kit out for their share in $1200 of Club Vouchers.
National Championships Qualifications 2021
All four finalists have now also qualified for the national championship and are extended an invitation to contest Australasia's best Amateur golf championship at the 2021 Handiskins National Championship at RACV Royal Pines Resort next May. Given the great spirit contesting today we are sure all four finalists would be able to claim the silverware and be crowned Handiskins National Champion. The 2021 event will be held from Wednesday 28th April – Sunday 2nd May 2021.
