“I didn’t get off to the start I wanted, with a plugged ball in the bunker resulting in a bogey,” said Rankin.

“I found something with my putter out there and was able to keep it going throughout the round, I also drove the ball well which setup a number of opportunities."

“I’m thrilled to get the win here in Maryborough and I’m now looking forward to a few days off.”

Runner up was Victorian Adam Burdett who fired a second consecutive round of 4-under 66 for a Tournament total of 8-under par 132.

“I played well all day with the highlight being two eagles, one on the 5th hole and another on the 15th hole.” said Burdett.

"The only bogey I had for the Tournament was on my final hole of the Tournament which was disappointing, I knew I couldn’t catch Brett Rankin and I just lost my focus for a moment."

“It’s been three years since I last played here in Maryborough and the course has come a long way in that time, it is a credit to the management and staff of the Maryborough Golf Club.”
