Perth Golf Super 6

Perth Golf Super 6

The ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth held on the weekend lived up to all expectations with three days of strokeplay and a final day of 6 hole match play games providing an exciting new format that the game of golf has needed for some time.

It was fitting that West Australian native Brett Rumford took out his hometown event, not only for any sentimental reason, but for the way the 39 year old led the field from the end of the first round on Thursday until his victory over Thailand’s Phachara Khongwatmai, 2 and 1, on Sunday afternoon.

It was the ninth professional victory for Rumford, who has had a lean time recently, having been out of action due to injury and losing his European Tour card. His win sees him regain his spot on the European Tour and with a refined swing under renowned coach Gary Barter, with whom Rumford has begun working with recently, should see him gather some more good results in the season to come.
Western Australia’s number 1 course, Lake Karrinyup hosted the event and again provided a great test of golf and fantastic viewing for those who attended and watched on television.
