Tory on par for CQ golf selection
EMERALD golfer Tory Edmistone firmed her chances for selection in the 2012 Central Queensland Junior Jug team with a blistering first-round win at the prestigious Capricorn Country Club.
"To finish two over on a course she only plays on about once a year is outstanding," Golf CQ secretary Gurney Clamp said.
"It's a longer course and a challenging course… one of the best in the region."
Tory's Keppel Zone team will spear into the final round at the Calliope Golf Club on Sunday with a distinct but far from certain lead, as players jostle for a position on the CQ Junior Jug team.
If the nerves are not already heightened, they will surely get a good shake-up at Calliope with CQ selectors running an eagle eye over the regional candidates.
Clamp said the added demands would only serve to strengthen Tory's resolve in her future golfing career.
"It's a good experience for her (Tory)," Clamp said.
"They have got to play under that pressure… it's a different game.
"Adam Bligh, Jason Day, they have all gone through it."
Tory can claim to have experienced a little of what that pressure is like, as a member on last year's CQ Junior Jug team which tied for first place at the Queensland titles. This year's Queensland title will again be decided on central Queensland fairways at the Yeppoon Golf Club in June.
