Bunque and Micheluzzi win Victorian Amateur Championship
Monday, 18 December 2017
VIS golfers, Stephanie Bunque and David Micheluzzi, have won the 2017 Women’s and Men’s Victorian Amateur Championships at the Commonwealth Golf Club last week.
Bunque defeated Australia’s third ranked women’s player, Grace Kim, from New South Wales. Improving on her runner-up placing two years ago, Bunque was excited with the victory.
“Coming runner-up two years ago was a bit deflating at the time, but now going one-better this year is very rewarding, it’s a good feeling.”
David Micheluzzi won his maiden Victorian Amateur title in a birdie filled affair.
“It hasn’t quite sunk in yet but yeah, just over the moon,” said Micheluzzi after the dominant display.
“It’s pretty hard to win a tournament and I’ve just ticked one off the list for this year and hopefully I’ll go into next year and win more.
“I hit it probably the best I’ve hit it all week and also putted the best I have all week. It all kind of clicked which was great. It’s probably some of the best golf I’ve ever played I think.
“Hopefully 2018 can be better.”
