It takes something pretty special to be a national winner in the Genesis Golf Link Cup and Week Five A Grade Winner Wade Von Duve’s effort certainly qualifies.
Wade is a long-time golfer (though only a club member in the last few years) but he never expected to achieve what he did during a magical round at his home course of Murray Bridge in South Australia last Wednesday.
Renee Talyor is part of two important teams this year. Sure, there’s the Hockeyroos who are taking aim at a third consecutive Commonwealth Games gold in Queensland this month.
But then there’s the ‘Taylor Clan’, the appropriately named team she is part of alongside mother Sonya, father Graham and brother Jared which is battling for top honours and a place in the National Final of the Genesis Golf Link Cup.
If you say the term ‘sandbelt’, most golfers think of Melbourne, but Adelaide has its own pocket of world-class golf courses and chief among them is The Grange Golf Club, which we were lucky enough to visit.
