Dear members

Our second year PGA Associate Lachie Aylen, lead wire-to-wire to secure the 2021 Vic / Tas PGA Associate Championships title, and created tournament history in the process.

Lachie shot a steady 1-under par 71 around the Captains course of the Tocumwal Golf & Bowls Club to record a comfortable victory.

The forecast was a foggy start to the morning but the players awoke to another beautiful Tocumwal morning.

There was no breeze to speak of and the only challenge that was presented to the players was the Captains course and their quick greens.

Lachie put any nerves to rest from the outset with a birdie at the first followed by another at the sixth, but these were offset by bogeys at the fifth and seventh holes.

Neither of his playing partners were able to apply any pressure and Lachie was able to complete a great week with a birdie on the 71st hole to have a relaxed walk down the 72nd.

Lachie finished with a Tournament Record equalling total of 17-under par 271 ahead of Steffi Vogel (Cobram-Barooga) in outright second on 276.
