And the highlight of the four-day teams and singles event was the new womens course record set on day two by Queenslander Courtney Massey. Masseys 66 was two shots better than the previous record set two years ago during the same event. She went into the final round with a three-shot buffer over Tasmanian Ashlee Dewhurst (219) and four better than Whitney Hillier (220) from WA. The 22-year-old Massey was involved in another highlight when all three recorded 291 for the four rounds. Dewhurst managed to hold her nerve and won on the third hole in a play-off. In the mens competition, Humpty Doo golfer Ian Walker (215) held a four stroke advantage over Australian Defence Organisations Peter Reinke (219) after the third round and he grabbed gold after shooting an impressive 71 in the final round to finish on 286 ahead of the two ADO players Reinke and Darryl Whitehead. ADO blitzed all others in the mens teams event and Golf Australia won gold in the womens team. The Peter Thomson trophy winner for the overall best score was won by NT player Ian Walker. One of the youngest golf competitors was 15-year-old Aditya Nur Setyanthiko from Lombok, Indonesia. Setyanthikos island home has two 18-hole golf courses and he has been playing the game for seven years. The 10-handicapper has a best round of 78, and he has played in Malaysia and Thailand where he finished second at the Junior Truevision Thai Championship in 2008 and the youngsters ambitions are lofty. I want to turn professional in five years and play on the world circuit, he said solemnly. On this trip, however, he finished well back in the Arafura Games field. Athletics HalfMarathon Men: 1.
