Matthew Millar has held off all contenders today, taking out the 2016 JRT/TAG Yeppoon Golf Classic at the Yeppoon Golf Club on Queensland’s Central Coast.

Millar finished with a four round total of 26 under par, to finish two shots ahead of Darren Beck, who would have to feel somewhat unlucky to shoot 24 under par and finish second.

“It is great to win this tournament, the team at Yeppoon Golf Club really know how to put on a world class event and this year has certainly been no different,” said Millar.

“Darren and I battled hard throughout the day and it really only come down to a few putts here or there that proved to be the difference. Darren played great all week and it’s good to see his name once again around the top of the leaderboard.

“I am going to take away plenty of positives this week. I wedged it well and made clutch putts when I really needed them, and I guess that’s what you need to do to win.”

“This has been a great lead in event for the NT PGA Championship, so hopefully I can replicate my form in Palmerston in a week’s time.”

While the men were battling it out for the overall prize, Katelyn Must and Alexandra Orchard were in a fight to claim the ladies purse.

Holding a comfortable margin heading into today’s final round, Must signed for a disappointing 76. Fortunately for Must, Orchard was unable to make up any of the overnight deficit also signed for a 76, giving Must a six shot win in the inaugural ladies event.   

Many of the professionals will remain in Central Queensland for a few more days as the PGA Pro-Am Series rolls into Boyne Island on Monday for the Purcell’s Engineering/Capri Wholesale Boyne Island Pro-Am.
