KEPERRA COUNTRY CLUB, Queentsland, Australia (May 14, 2010) -- Gavin Fairfax is the 2010 Keperra Bowl champion after completing a four-under par 68 at Keperra Country Golf Club. Sitting on an 8-shot overnight lead, and showing little sign of nerves through his opening holes, Fairfax's final round included four birdies and an eagle to finish four shots clear of the field on 265.

His 23-under par total marked the lowest aggregate score in the six years that the world ranking event has been hosted by Keperra.

Victorian JIn Jeong secured second place at 269 (-19) following another course record equalling 9-under par 63. Like Gavin Fairfax the day before, Jeong's round included nine birdies and nine pars.

Blake McGrory (Surfers Paradise) was third on 271 (-17) following an excellent final round 6-under par 66, with Marika Batibasaga finishing a further two shots back on 273 (-15) with a final round 4-under par 68.

The towering 21-year old Fairfax, who is looking to move to the US to attend Augusta State University later this year, said he was delighted with his win.

"I've been around Keperra a fair few times and its obviously easier when you know the layout," he said.

"I was a little bit nervous on the opening holes but that didn't last long and I was very happy to shoot a 68 today."

Viraat Badhwar (Indooroopilly) continued his golden shot-making run for the week, adding to his second round albatross with a final round hole-in-one on the 199 metre par 3 12th hole.

"I really love playing that corner of the course," said Viraat who won a $1000 voucher courtesy of sponsor Toro Australia for today's ace.

Golf Queensland congratulates Keperra Country Golf Club on hosting another highly successful tournament, and thanks the sponsors of the Keperra Bowl - Cadbury Schweppes, Elite Troke, Nu-Turf, Toro Australia, Regional Insurance Brokers and Bellrose Jewellers.
