Tougher than rest of field

YEPPOON'S Trevor Tougher was always going to be at home on his home golf course.

Tougher has continued his dominance of Central Queensland golf after winning yet another Home Design Solutions Yeppoon Golf Club Open Championship on Sunday.

This was Tougher's sixth ? and fifth straight ? Yeppoon open title.

Tougher knows this Yeppoon course inside and out with an impressive 10 Yeppoon men's closed titles against his name.

The leading Yeppoon golfer had his work cut out early in the event when he trailed Aaron Malone (71 gross) by two shots after the opening round.

Tougher hit back in the second round to fire an even par 71 for a two over par 144 and claim the title from Rockhampton's Barry England on 148.

In B grade, Yeppoon's Ian Anderson (165 gross) played steady golf to win by two shots from Yeppoon's Brad Rumble, while in C Grade Yeppoon's Sandy Bredhauer (181) prevailed to win convincingly from Yeppoon's Mike Wilkins (186).

In the nett events, the A grade winner was Charlie Lillie (139) from Shane Weir (140).

The B grade nett title went to Neil Clarke (140) from Greg Sorensen (142) while David Caulton won the C grade nett on 142 from Barry Brook (147). Meanwhile, after 11 rounds of the Central Queensland Men's Golfer of the Year event Yeppoon's Terry Bulger is the only player in all grades to have completed the required minimum seven rounds.

Bulger has a handy lead in both the gross (53) and nett (46) divisions.

The next round is at the Duaringa Golf Club on June 19.

Yeppoon's course is still holding up well after a lot of traffic over the past weeks and play continues this weekend with the Yeppoon Junior Open Championship on Sunday.
