2011 Spirit Player, Anthony Murdaca won the Asia Pacific Amateur in impressive fashion last week. He played and putted so well over the course of 3 rounds at Royal Melbourne, that he found himself with an 8-shot lead heading into the final round. Although he stumbled a bit on the back nine coming in, there was never really too much of a challenge for Anthony. As a matter of fact, his greatest concern was oversleeping and missing the final round.
“I had a sleepless night worrying that my alarm would not go off and I would miss my tee time,” Murdaca said. “That would have been a disaster.”
With this victory, Anthony will be invited to play next spring in The Masters.
“Ii is a pretty special win considering what you get. I have been working hard for a win all year and I have certainly won the right one. It is already exciting just thinking about it.”
