Great to see Tyler Hodge and Lachie McDonald make it through the first stage of Australasian PGA Qualifying last week. They both played at the NZ qualifying venue in Hamilton. 16 hopefuls entered that event with 4 places on the line to go through to the final stage to be played in Melbourne in January. Hodge played very well for a 3 round total of 11 under to win that event, and McDonald finished at 2 under to take the 4th spot. The other 2 qualifiers were Brad Hayward and Fraser Wilkin.
