A host of local and Victorian talent are in the mix to claim the coveted Mooroopna Masters today.
Playing over 36 holes Kyle Michel is among those in the running, with the Shepparton talent one of the favourites in the strong field.
Michel is looking to accumulate another Mooroopna Masters trophy, having won the past two editions of the event.
As expected, the home club dominates the list of entrants with Mooroopna Golf Club member Brett Kellow one of those hoping to continue his superb year with a strong showing at the Ivo Whitton event.
Kellow won the Latrobe Open in early January, beating Cobram/Barooga’s Chris Tomlinson in a play-off.
The Mooroopna ace will again contest against Tomlinson as both aim to claim a portion of the $2000 in trophies on offer.
Kellow will tee off alongside fellow clubman and Mooroopna Club champion James MacGibbon.
MacGibbon had his name engraved on the club trophy for the fifth time in November.
Lincoln Ferrari will also be representing Shepparton, while Euroa’s Matthew Mill and Eddie Carracher add a further Goulburn Valley flavour to the event.
The esteemed Woodlands Golf Club has Matthew Perrin taking part in the event.
The women’s competition is also dominated by Mooroopna talent.
The events starts at 7am today.
The all Mooroopna foursome of Beau Ash, Dean Robinson, Michael Hodgson and Tyson Ash tee off first.
