Welcome back Cameron Bickley
Published on 10 May 2021
We are very excited to welcome back Cameron Bickley to Willunga, albeit in a different role to when he was last here.
Cameron has spent the last 18 months working at the Blackwood Golf Club with Club Professional Matthew Dent.
Cameron was indentured to Matthew as a Trainee Golf Professional for 3 years but has decided to complete his training at Willunga and McCracken under Peter.
Cameron comes to Willunga with many new skills including custom club fitting and analysing of your equipment with Flightscope technology. Cameron has also completed his training for coaching and is available for lessons by appointment. His training has also seen him become skilled in club repairs, lie angle adjustment, and other skills.
Cameron’s golf game has also been going extremely well having passed all of his playing requirements and earning a national invite allowing him to play in professional events.
Cameron has recently returned from competing in the Victoria/Tasmania state trainee championships at tocumwal finishing a very respectable 13th from the 130 starters. Cameron had rounds of 75;74,66,74 including the low round of the day with the 66 on the third day. (See below the extract from the PGA website)
Please make Cameron feel welcome in his new role as Trainee Professional at Willunga.
Lachlan Aylen has extended his lead during the third round of the 2021 Vic/Tas PGA Trainee Championship at the Tocumwal Golf & Bowls Club.
Scoring was excellent on the Presidents course as Aylen, a second year Associate at the Eynesbury Golf & Homestead, led by six shots after 54 holes following a 3-under par round of 69 that included 7 birdies.
He sits 16-under par 200, one shy of the tournament record of 17-under set Dale Crothers in 2019.
Aylen’s nearest challenger, Steffi Vogel (Cobram-Barooga), produced a strong round of 5-under par 67 following rounds of 70-69 to sit on 10-under par 206.
Luke Humphries (Goulburn) will be the final member of the last group after a third Round of 72 to finish 54 holes on 7-under 209.
In a tie for fourth is Tim Walker (Peninsula-Kingswood) and Tom Bond (Adelaide Shores Driving Range), who will both be joined in the penultimate group with Connor McLean (Melton Valley) who followed his first two rounds of 68-72 with another even par round of 72.
The best round of the day was shot by Cameron Bickley from the Blackwood Golf Club in South Australia.
Bickley’s bogey-free round included an eagle on the par-5 seventh and four other birdies that saw him jump from 33rd to a tie for 12th place.
Play moves back to the Captain’s Course for the final round today.
