Marchesani wins in a golf thriller

A thrilling five-hole playoff delivered a win for James Marchesani in the 2019 Western Open pro-am golf tournament in Horsham at the weekend.

Marchesani and Ben Murphy were locked at one under par after two rounds at Horsham Golf Club, narrowly edging out hometown hero Levi Burns, who finished two shots behind the leaders in third place.

Golfers were tested by windy conditions and fast greens during the tournament, but Marchesani was able to build a three-shot lead entering the back nine on Sunday.

A consistent Murphy was able to make up ground after Marchesani faltered with three bogeys and took the lead with an eagle on the 18th.

Marchesani then birdied the hole to force a playoff.

The pair went shot for shot through four playoff holes before Marchesani pulled out a memorable victory on the 18th green.

Marchesani praised the Horsham course and the tournament after his win.

“I am happy to get the win here at Horsham,” he said.

“Everyone involved should be so proud. 

“You have a wonderful golf course, great facilities and some of the best greens I have ever putted on.”

Lachy Aylen took out the Ivo Whitten amateur competition with rounds of 74 and 71, placing equal sixth in the open.

Kim Kennedy won a Susie Tolhurst amateur women’s section with a two-shot victory over Monica Marchesani.
