MARK'S POINT, NSW, Australia (January 23, 2016) -- Soft and calm conditions yielded very low rounds at the Lake Macquarie Amateur. Most notable was New South Wales native Harrison Endycott's 68 which was enough for a two shot victory.
Endycott entered the final round trailing Ben Ferguson who held the lead through the first three rounds. Ferguson, a native of West Australia, faltered early with a double bogey on his first hole. Endycott took advantage, making three birdies on the front nine and tacking on three more on the back nine to close things out at 12-under par.
Charlie Dann fired an impressive bogey-free 67 to climb to solo second. Dylan Perry did him one better with a bogey-free 66 that tied the round of the day and vaulted him into a tie for 5th.
In the women's division, South Korea's Hye-Jin Choi shot a lights out 65 to shatter the course record by three shots and win by the same margin. Choi made five birdies on the front nine and added three on the back for a bogey-free effort and a 13-under par total (par 73).
Australian Women's Amateur champion Min-Ji Park held the overnight lead but her final round 69 wouldn't be enough to withstand Choi's charge. She took solo second honors with a 10-under par total.
