PERTH’S Brett Rumford hits Lake Karrinyup Country Club today to defend his World Super 6 Perth title.
But on Wednesday, the Royal Perth Golf Club member mixed with amateurs for the event’s annual pro am.
The only people more excited from the teams of sponsors and media were the caddy kids who won a competition to walk alongside their heroes and provide welcome relief for the amateurs who walked the hilly course.
Terry Hatzis (12) from Dianella, Owen Coutts-McCord (13) who travelled from Port Kennedy and Wandi’s Braedon Law (12) walked the 18 holes with Rumford who happily passed on tips to the aspiring professionals.
Rumford’s Tourism WA team finished 8th in the afternoon pro am with the team from PGA of Australia and their professional Simon Hawkes coming first.
The Emirates team with Yusaki Miyazato was second and Sean Crocker’s PGA Media came third.
Lake Karrinyup Country Club’s team was fourth and won the morning competition.
