Golf Australia Express : GA Express 239
Younger Street, Warrnambool • T: 03 55628528 • E: firstname.lastname@example.org • www.wgcinc.com.au Whether competing in the weekly competitions, tournament golf, or that casual round, golfers have a newly named challenge – “The Shipwreck Bend” On approaching the 4th tee at Warrnambool Golf Course golfers are greeted by the rusty remains of a ships anchor and a sign advising that they are entering the Shipwreck Bend. Three par 4’s, the first two with elevated tee and the third a dogleg right, laid out behind a tertiary dune system hiding the coast line that gives this part of Victoria its name. The sign above the anchor warns that “many a good round has run aground here”. Challenge yourself at Ship wreck Bend In the months since, the 23-year-old has been making up for lost time, having been consistent, though not spectacular, until last week’s T6 at the Valero Texas Open hinted at something even bigger on the horizon. It took an unlikely partnership with Jonas Blixt to complete the comeback story, with the pair combining better than any of their more fancied and highly- ranked opponents to produce 76 holes of golf without a single bogey, and earn Smith a maiden Tour title at the freshly-minted pairs event. Having last year languished with his Tour future in doubt, Smith now has playing rights until at least the end of the 2019 season, automatic entries into the Players Championship and PGA Championship, and a very likely berth in the FedEx Cup cash grab at season’s end. And that’s not to mention the $US1.7 million he’s now pocketed with half the season still ahead of him.
