It was Grace Kim’s moment to shine in the celebrity skins game at Queanbeyan Golf Club this afternoon.
Kim, a novice in the cut and thrust of a hard money action, made her presence felt collecting her first skin of the day on the opening hole, much to the delight of the three-hundred strong gallery.
Her opponents, local Pro Jake Nagle, the Evergreen Matt Millar, and three-time tour winner Jordan Zunic could have been excused for thinking they might not see any action at all.
It didn’t turn out to be all one-way though, Nagle grabbed a handy win on the second, while Matt Millar snared a double skin with 4th with a par.
With the next three holes halved, Kim underlined her growing reputation, picking up the largest pot of the day, a cool $2500, with an impressive 10-footer for birdie on the 8th.
Zunic, without a skin to his name, finally got in on the action up the last, and after a towering drive over the dogleg followed by an in-between kind of chip, made a vital a birdie to grab the all-important final skin of the day, valued at a handy $1250.
