Queensland's Quinnton Croker is the inaugural champion of the LLD International Amateur Championship in Singapore after a dominant wire-to-wire victory.

The 19-year-old lit up Laguna National Golf & Country Club - which also hosted last week's Queen Sirikit Cup - in shooting rounds of 67, 66 and 74 to finish nine-under par and 12 shots clear of local player Daryl Low.

“This is my first time being out of Australia playing an event, it’s pretty good to come away with a win. I’ve won a couple of events in Australia but this is definitely one of the biggest ones I’ve won,” Croker said.

“I played alright recently, came in here playing pretty well, swung it good, putt it well, the greens are similar to home so it didn’t feel too unnatural, happened to play some really good golf and the scores showed that.”

Croker represented Queensland at the Australian Interstate Teams Matches last month - where he went undefeated - and he was joined in Singapore by three of his competitors from that tournament: Victorian Toby Walker, South Australian Charlie Nobbs and Tasmanian Hunter Gillard.

Walker (T6), Nobbs (T15) and Gillard (T17) all impressed by coming in the top-20, while in the female competition, Queenslander Hannah Reeves (7th), Tasmanian Hallie Meaburn (12th) and South Australian Amelia Whinney (15th) were the other Golf Australia development athletes who competed and performed solidly.
