IBF 2017 JC Main A mix of Queensland’s finest juniors golfers, and their families gathered together at Twin Waters Golf Club to contest the running of the 2017 Ian Baker – Finch Junior Classic, on a day, that started out under threatening skies that eventually turned into what was the perfect day for golf, where Twin Waters had their course and facilities set up beautifully for everyone to test their game in what turned out to be an extremely exciting day, and we don’t believe…………

 

Anyone left disappointed, particularly Ian Baker – Finch who was thrilled to bits with the way his Classic unfolded. These kids are just amazing, Ian said, the performances I witnessed out there today would have done any Professional proud.

 

Lewis Hoath (Emerald Lakes – p2 - below) chipped in twice over the closing holes to tie with close friend Ben Stieler (Brookwater – p3). Both boys finished with one under par 71’s. “That sent Ben and his father’s hearts into overdrive” particularly when you appreciate that Ben just a few short weeks earlier, lost to George Giblett (Noosa) during a sudden death playoff whilst contesting The Invincibles IGA Sunshine Coast Junior Masters Championship at Noosa Springs.

 

To Ben and Lewis’s credit, the playoff on the par five eighteenth was as good as it gets. Lewis won the toss and chose to tee up first, where he drilled a magnificent drive into the heart of the narrow opening at the 260m mark, only to see Ben drive some thirty-five metres past him in the middle of the fairway. Both boys went on to play magnificent approach shots onto the green, where Lewis missed his long eagle attempt, that only left a short putt for birdie.

 

Ben’s five metre eagle putt never looked like missing as it disappeared into the heart of the hole to the delight of the large gallery that was on hand to witness what was a brilliant display of golf by both boys, who should be enormously proud of their performances.

What made this playoff something very special, was that not only did the boys play extremely well, and the sportsmanship that Tyler Duncan and Sam Haines displayed when they offered to caddie for the boys, which had a very good feel to it in itself, but what really made the playoff something very special and some-what unique, was Ian’s running commentary, which was just brilliant thanks to Duncan O’Brien (FairwayVision) and everyone involved, including the gallery (click on the link below).

The girl’s division also went down to the wire, at one stage it looked as though there was going to be another two-way playoff between Caitlyn Campbell – Nyman (Pacific) and Lion Higo (Emerald Lakes) who both carded 75’s, that was until Keely Purdey (Virginia – p4 above) came in with a “Better Than Her Best Performance” to claim the female division of the Ian Baker – Finch Junior Classic with a one over par 73.


Ben Stieler (Brookwater - p1 below with Ian) and Keely Purdey (Virginia – p 2-3) qualified for The Invincibles 2018 IGA Sunshine Coast Junior Masters Championship, that will be hosted by the very generous and supportive Twin Waters, Pelican Waters, Peregian Golf Course, and Noosa Springs Golf Resorts during the last week of the September School holidays (Sunday September 30 to Wednesday the 3rd of October).

Keely Purdey (Virginia – p3 above) won The Invincibles Sunshine Coast Course Cup with her nett 66, and in the process qualified for The Invincibles Sunshine Coast Gold Cup of Cups Championship that will be hosted by Twin Waters Golf Club, Sunday November 26, followed immediately by The Invincibles Annual Junior Presentation Dinner!

Ian was absolutely thrilled with his day. “the way these kids handle themselves both on and off the course is a credit to their parents, their clubs and the game of golf, Ian said, they present immaculately, and they can certainly play the game as scores would indicate, and they speak so well at presentations and that’s largely due to The Invincibles Tour.

 Ian went on to say, The Invincibles should be enormously proud of what they are achieving within junior golf, not only here on the Sunshine Coast, but throughout Queensland, because I know I am extremely proud to be Patron and ambassador for The Invincibles Tour, Ian said (pictured below with Lewis, Ben, Catelyn Campbell – Nyman and Lion Higo)

Ian also said “You only have to look around, to see the impact The Invincibles are having on junior golf. It’s obvious they are having a lot of fun (as do the parents) and at the same time they are learning a lot of invaluable people and social skills that will carry them through life, and there’s no doubt that I will do everything I can to help”.

 

The boy and girl winners of the IBF Junior Classic (Ben & Keely) will be sponsored by Ian to a major event of their choosing to the value of $1000 to be used for travel and accommodation.


Ben also received an invitation from Golf Queensland into the final qualifying round of the 2018 Isuzu Queensland Open.

 

Keely received an invitation from LPGA to their 2018 Canberra Classic.

 

As well as qualifying for The Invincibles Sunshine Coast and Greg Norman Junior Masters Championships. 
   
Ian felt so moved with Lewis’s performance that he extended a special award of $500 to help with expenses to a championship of his choosing.
