Round 3 Report



NSW senior golfer Stefan Albinski can add yet another state title to his already imposing list of victories across Australia.
Stefan Albinski
Albinski displayed all of his skills in defeating a very strong field of senior golfers in the 2015 Tasmanian Senior Amateur Championship played at the Mowbray Golf Club in Launceston.

Albinski improved every day and his rounds of 75-73-71 gave him a 54-hole total of 219 and a six stroke margin over local Mowbray member Michael Leedham (76-76-73). Third place went to a group of five visiting golfers - Victorian Alan Bullas (76-77-73=226, NSW's Vince Clark (75-76-75=226), NSW's Chris Gordon (77-74-75=226), South Australian Lindsay Elliott (76-73-77=226) and Queenslander Steve Toyne (77-74-75=226).

Round 2 Report



It is the very familiar name of Stefan Albinski who will lead the field into the final round of the 2015 Tasmanian Senior Amateur Championship being played at the Mowbray Golf Club in Launceston. Albinski followed his opening round of 75 with a score of 73 and his 148 total gives him a one stroke lead. With his experience and long list of wins he is clearly the favourite to take out another state senior championship.

Les Browne
Just one stroke behind after rounds of 76 and 73 is South Australian Lindsay Elliott (pictured left). He is another experienced senior and although this is the first time he has played in the fianl group on the final day he is a seasoned campaigner and is expected to give Albinski something to worry about.

After the top two there is then a two stroke gap tp a group of four on 36-holer totals of 151. These players are Steve Toyne (77-74), Chris Gordon (77-74), Bill Wellington (76-75) and Vince Clark (75-76). A special round from any of this group could see them come from behind to calim a win.

Perhaps the only other golfer with a chance is Michael Leedham on a total of 152 after rounds of 76 and 76. Leedham is a member at Mowbray and a multiple winner of this title. He is certainly capable of breaking par and could be the player to challenge the leading pair.

Round one equal leader Les Browne slipped back with a score of 83 as did leading Victorian Barry Tippett who followed his opening 76 with an 83. NSW senior Ross Bockman was a big improver with a round of 74 after opening with 83.

The championship concludes on Friday.

Round 1 Report



There is a very crowded leaderboard after the first round of the 2015 Tasmanian Senior Amateur Championship being played at the Mowbray Golf Club in Launceston. There are 18 golfers within three shots of each other with scores ranging from 75 to 78.

Les Browne
Currently tied for the lead are the defending champion Stefan Albinski (NSW), fellow Australian representative Vince Clark (NSW) and another NSW senior Les Browne (pictured right).

Whilst the first two may be regular names on the leaderboard this is perhaps a first for Browne and it is great to see the well known Long Reef golfer, who has done so much for senior golf at the administrative level, sharing the lead.

Six golfers are just a stroke behind - two South Australians in Ken Brown and Lindsay Elliot, the Victorian pair of Alan Bullas and Barry Tippett and the home state's leading senior golfers Bill Wellington and Michael Leedham.

The championship continues tomorrow and concludes on Friday.

This is the third event of the new senior ranking year (following the 2014 ACT Seniors and the 2015 Royal Melbourne Senior Classic) and it is sure to attract a good field with defending champion Stefan Albinski a definite starter and keen to make it three victories in successive years.
