An enthusiastic field of 40 golfers have entered the inaugural Tasmanian Play 9 state final being conducted on Sunday. Favourites for the women’s title are Llanherne Golf Club’s Annabelle Mollineaux-Herbert and Ulverstone’s Vicki Edwards. Both play off a handicap of 13 and will be keen to stamp their mark on the inaugural event being conducted at the Launceston Golf Club. Wynyard’s Sharon Baker and Ulverstone Golf Club’s Beverly Hearps are also likely to place high on the final leader board. The men’s event will see eight handicapper Jordan Young from the Tasmania Golf Club tee up as favourite. However, Young is likely to face some opposition from Daniel Lyden who plays of 10 at the Llanherne Golf Club. Oatlands’ Felix Kennedy, Wynyard’s Stephen Gleeson and Prospect Vale’s Keith Bradford will also be keen to perform well. All are vying for the opportunity to play nine holes at the Play 9 national final being held at the 2021 Queensland Open on March 13 at Pelican Waters Golf Club. Each qualifying player (four per state/territory association) will receive return flights to the Sunshine Coast and two nights accommodation at no cost. The event commences on Sunday with a shotgun start at 10.00am and concludes with the crowing of Tasmania’s men’s and women’s Play 9 champions.
