Lautee secures No.1 seed but fails to fire in matchplay
Tuesday, 21 January 2020
VIS’ Andre Lautee won his first national stroke play medal, and qualified as the top seed in the Matchplay section of the Australian Amateur Championship in Brisbane.
Lautee was dominant on the second day of medal play, picking off a six-under-par 66 at Royal Queensland to reach overall eight-under-par and win the Australian Stroke Play Championship by a single shot.
He birdied the first three holes consecutively to pick up momentum, went out in 31 and had just one bogey, at the par-four 14th hole.
However, in the Matchplay, Lautee wasn’t able to fire and came undone to Kiwi James Hydes 3&2.
