Five from Warwick playing brilliantly in national final

GOLF: The Warwick Golf Club team leads after the first day of the VW Scramble national final at Twin Waters on the Sunshine Coast.

Neil Moore, Caleb King, Rhys Farrell and Chris Hynes won the qualifier at the Warwick club and then a regional qualifier to make it to the national finals.

Each winning team is joined by their professional for the regional finals so Sam Eaves joined the team as Warwick won the regional final and this weekend at the national final.

The final is being played as a five-ball scramble over three days.

Three of the players, King, Farrell and Hynes, are aged under 25 with Moore and Eaves a little older.

After the first round, the Warwick team is 20.9 nett under par and ahead of the runners up team which has 18.3.

"All the team is playing well to deliver the shots they needed. In scramble, it is important for all players to drive well and putt well and our team is doing that,” Eaves said.

After Sunday's competition, the top 12 will make the cut for the final round on Monday.

Last year, Eaves was in the winning combination which represented the Allora club at the national final.

Eaves is the only player in the five to have played at Twin Waters before the national final.
