Federal Open Am: Bringolf lives up to name
Daniel Bringolf has finished his amateur golf career in style, winning his last tournament before he turns pro at the end of the year.
The Sydneysider won the Federal Amateur Open Championships, finishing 10-under par on Sunday.
It was his first victory in 18 months and his last before embarking on the start of a professional career.
His last win was in the Malaysian Amateur Open, at the A'Famosa resort near Kuala Lumpur, which he rates as his best victory so far.Advertisement
''That's probably my biggest achievement, it was my first time overseas and my first big win - definitely this [win at Federal] would be up there,'' Bringolf said.
''Actually, I'm thinking about turning pro at the end of the year.
''I'm going to go to Aussie tour school and also Asian tour school, and also thinking of going to Japan tour school mid next year.
''This is going to be my last amateur event, so it's good to win my last one.''
If his name is anything to go by, he's meant to make it.
