Hollis eyes two titles at champs

AFTER winning the foursome championship at the Downs and South West Golf Championships yesterday, Toowoomba golfer Natalie Hollis is hoping to win the individual event over the next two days. The 20-year-old from Toowoomba teamed up with Trudy Dunne to win with a score of 78 nett.

Hollis plays off a handicap of eight and Dunne off 10 and their score closely reflected the average of their handicaps in an event where players play alternate shots.

For the first three days this week, Hollis is having a break from work and study commitments to play in her second championship after, in her own words, struggling on the sand greens at St George.

She isn't getting two confident about the 36-hole championship.

"The course is challenging and approaches unpredictable," Hollis said.

She is one of the lower markers in a field which includes Warwick player Sam Hinze who has the record 77 on the new white course.

Janine Stewart and Majella Kahler won the overall nett for the day after winning the same title at the state championships in 2011.

The single-stroke championship starts at 8am today and tomorrow with 132 nominations.

Mayor Peter Blundell and past Golf Queensland president Tom Crothers were guest speakers at last night's dinner.
