Local Bonville Trainee Professional Bill Stocks recently travelled to Perth to contest the West Australian PGA Trainee Championships finishing in a top 10 position across the 72-hole tournament at Nedlands golf course. The young hopeful is a Third Year Trainee Professional at Bonville Golf Resort where he has been refining his craft.

Players battled tough conditions throughout the tournament including winds of up to 35km and hour and rain that made putting difficult at times and made the conditions a little softer under foot.

“I tried to use the softer conditions to my advantage by being a little more aggressive when attacking the pin” Said Stocks “I finished with 2 over on the last round in tough conditions, so I picked up about 5 spots on the leaderboard on the last day. It was my goal to hit the top 10 and it’s been a great learning experience.” He added.

Bonville Professional Matthew Dagger, a product of the program himself has worked closely with Stocks says “Billy should be very happy with a top 10 finish on a golf course he has never played before, against a quality field of young golfers”

The result follows a recent trip to Melbourne where Stocks played at the Southern Trainee Championships at Tocumwal on the Murray River. Stocks is working toward the Trainee event of the year, the National Futures Championship at Ballarat Golf Club on October 24th, where he will meet the most talented Trainees from across Australia and the world, and a chance at sharing in over $60,000 in prize money.
