Jacob shows he's Masters material

COOLANGATTA Tweed Heads young gun Jacob Tonkin will enter today’s third round in contention for his first Greg Norman Junior Masters title.

The local sharp-shooter posted a remarkable 71 to sit fourth in the under-13s after the first day’s play, and despite slipping to a 79 yesterday, finds himself amongst the leaders entering day three.

Almost 220 players teed off on the immaculate River Course for this year’s masters, with seven countries, all states of Australia and 18 District Queensland Golf Associations represented.

The best round shot so far was that of 17-year-old Redcliffe prodigy Taylor MacDonald, who fired a massive eight-under 64 – one off the course record.
