As Defending Champ, Ian had the honour of choosing the course this year, and the timing. He duly sent us to New Norfik in late June. It would be cold. Who would bring the HOT GOLF to burn off the Derwent Valley winter chill?
The King Island trip had been on the agenda for years, but tight budgets and new babies brought a series of postponements. Finally, at the end of April 2019, we got there for a cracking Wandererererer! (the first Wanderer since December 2016).
We were all ready to be blown away – by the golf courses, the stellar play and possibly, the roaring 40’s.
After Rory tanked at Augusta, there are now only
four three two players on Tour with a chance to complete their career Slam in 2019. Spiethy, Phil , Felix and Leroy.
Get out your magnifying glass and check out the winners of the 29 Majors so far!
There are empty spots for 2019’s four Majors, which will complete our first ten years as a Golf Tour. Who will claim those wins? Felix has the Wandererererer, so you just have to imagine the red box up there for him at the moment. Will update this graph when the year is done.

Here are the Scoring Records for our Four Major Tournaments, so you know what you need to beat!
Cravo is one of the original members of the GWT, our Tour Secretary and Gent’s Mental Health Ambassador. His real name is Leigh, but so is Leroy’s (hence Cravo goes by his surname/nickname).
Cravo has helped drive the positive ethos of the Tour, yet also provided some classic giggle moments with mega-tantrums and controversies. Sadly for those who like a chuckle and some drama, he’s taken his temperament to a new zen level most of the time, inspired by Leroy.
