Jager and Ninyette lead Jeep Pro-Am
BY PGA of Australia | 09 Nov 2012
Western Australians’ Matt Jager and Brody Ninyette will lead the field into the third round of the Jeep Pro-Am Tour at the Vines Golf and Country club.
Ninyette relished the reasonably calm conditions at the Vines on Thursday and Friday with back to back rounds of 67, whilst Jager a former Australian Amateur Champion who has played the Canadian Tour this season, posted the low round of the day, a six under par 66 to go with his opening round of 68.
“I played solid today and am pleased with my form at the moment”, said first season professional Ninyette after the round. “I managed to keep the ball under the wind which helped get a score going, I can’t really think of anything I’ll be doing different over the final two rounds”.
Jager on the other hand recorded two eagles through his round, the first on the par 5 sixth hole, followed by another four holes later on the par 5 10th hole. “I’ve gone back to an old putter recently which has certainly helped and attributed to my low round today”, said Jager “I’ve really played well the last two days, the course is playing a little shorter than normal which has created a challenge in itself although look forward to the next two days”.
Closely trailing Jager and Ninyette are Martin Dive on 9 under par and Stephen Dartnall and Daniel Fox, both on 8 under par. Only six shots separate the top 15 players heading into day three.
Leading the non qualifying amateurs is Australian Socceroo Harry Kewell who continues to impress all with his golfing abilities, amidst losing four strokes from his handicap after 41 stableford points on day one.
The Western Australia leg of the 2012 Jeep Pro-Am Series will conclude on Sunday 11th November where professionals will share in $100,000 prize money thanks to naming partner Chrysler Australia.
