WENTWORTH is looking to be competitive in this year’s Central Western Districts Golf Association division one pennant ahead of it’s round one clash with Forbes on Sunday, at Duntryleague.
Skipper Steve Bray conceded his team isn’t as strong as some others, but said his players will work well as a unit.
“We’re all playing off below five, so we’ve got some very good golfers,” he said.
“Last year we focused on doing things as a group, like getting buses between events so we get a bit of camaraderie happening. Not just between the guys in division one, but the whole club.”
Bray will be joined in the Wentworth team by Jordan Clark, Brandon Connolly, Jason Hurford, Jamie Newman and Tyler Mendham, who will make his division one debut for Wentworth on Sunday.
“I don’t know much about Forbes this year,” Bray said.
“They have had some very good players in the past, but I think we’ve played Duntryleague enough to know the track a little better than they will, which should give us a bit of an advantage hopefully.”
Bray said Wentworth’s mixture of youth and experience puts his team in good stead.
“Tyler and Brandon are young, and Jordan is only early 20s,” he said.
“They’ll learn a few lessons I think, and we’ll make sure to let them know not to drop their heads if they start badly. One-on-one is different to scratch play.”
Bray, expectedly, nominated Duntryleague as the team to beat.
“They barely have a handicap between them,” he laughed.
“They’re always more than competitive.
“They won’t have a home ground advantage this year, but they’re still a very good team.”
