Reigning Millicent Golf Club champion Harry Coote made an impressive start to the Australian Amateur Championships in Adelaide last week.
He took to the fairways and greens of the silvertail course with around 100 others. Coote birdied his first two holes at Kooyonga and was briefly listed in equal third place on the leader board. He maintained good form on the remainder of his opening round.
However, his second day’s play was not as successful and he failed to make the final cut of 40. Millicent president Mark Pilmore said the club members followed the fortunes of Coote in the capital city with great interest.
“He is the first Millicent member to compete in the national amateur championships since Mark Pretty several years ago,” Pilmore said.
