Sweet tasting victory
ONE of Biloela's golfers has taken out a major championship.
Adam Mollis has won the Men's CQ Open Championships A Grade competition, beating players from all other Central Queensland golf clubs at the two day tournament played at Emu Park and Yeppoon.
After 20 years of golfing across the whole of Central Queensland, Mollis can now say he's taken out this big championship.
"It was nice to put that as part of my accomplishments,” Mollis said. "It's one of the tournaments I haven't won in this area.
"Knowing that you're the champion for the year is always a good feeling.”
Mollis started off well by recording the best gross score of two under 70 in the first round of the championships, played at the Emu Park golf club in very trying and windy conditions, conditions that continued in the second round at the Yeppoon golf club.
Round two saw Mollis card a three over gross score of 73 to give him a 36 hole overall total of one over to win the championships by two strokes from Yeppoon's Ben Swaffield.
Mollis personifies the weekend warrior title as he plays across every local club he can across the region.
"I generally try to get to most of the golf club opens across Central Queensland and Central Highlands,” Mollis said.
"The Biloela Golf Club are pleased to have me as part of their club, going out and bringing a few trophies back to the town.
"Just supporting the local clubs in getting their local numbers up.
"Every club has their open where they can attract the best golfers and I try to attend as much as I can to support them.”
Mollis's exploits don't stop here as he eyes off an ever bigger tournament in coming weeks with an opportunity to bring a massive victory back to Biloela.
"Theodore this weekend and then getting ready for Buderim at the end of September for the Sunshine Coast Open,” Mollis said.
"It'll be good once again to be the lad from Biloela, not too many go down to that sort of tournament to beat state players and ex-pros in that open.”
