Ona and O'Reilly win Queensland titles
BY Bruce Young | 27 Oct 2013
New South Welshman Callan O’Reilly has won the Queensland Men’s Amateur Championship at the Southport Golf Club on the Gold Coast with an emphatic 10 and 8 victory over the defending champion Jake McLeod from Queensland.
O’Reilly took the lead early in the 36 hole final and produced nine birdies and one eagle in the 28 hoes it took to account for McLeod.
In the Women’s Championship also played at Southport, Gailes Golf Club member, Ashley Ona, fought off a brave challenge from Ali Orchard of Surfers Paradise to win 2&1 although she had been ahead by four holes on two occasions.
Ona who nearly three years ago won the ALPG’s Royal Canberra Classic has been in the US in recent times and the benefit of that experience paid off this week.
