Mt Morgan men?s open approaches
THE Mount Morgan Men's Open Championship is ready to hit off on Sunday ? now all it needs is some more players.
Organisers have been forced to make this year's open, which doubles as the Central Queensland Green Open Championships, a progressive draw to be announced on the day of play which will hopefully help more players part with a $15 nomination fee and join the day's play.
The open has attracted interest from the country areas, in- cluding several Duaringa golfers, but a clash with a tri-club competition between Emu Park, Gracemere and Capricorn Country Club has affected numbers.
Past winners in Mount Morgan have included young guns Jason Day and Justin Maker, but it is newlywed Aaron Malone, who married Nyree Drillis on April 2, who arrives as the defending open champion.
Malone won the event with a 27-hole gross score of 102 last year.
James Musicka is the host club's main hope in the A-grade field.
Players will battle for A, B and C-grade honours over the nine-hole course with $1000 in prizes, proudly provided by local businesses, on offer.
This is also the sixth qualifying round in the men's Central Queensland Golfer of the Year event.
Play hits off at 7am on Sunday.
