Draper collects 1st win


Australian Tour professional Scott Draper collected his first professional golf win. Draper is also a former World ATP touring tennis pro. He reached a career high ranking of No42 in singles and won the Australian Open Mixed doubles in 2005, playing the Australian Golf Open the nest week.


He recently turned down an offer to coach Leyton Hewiit to concentrate on his career as a touring golfer.


Draper finished at -20 the card over the four round, playing great golf with only a solitary bogey over the 4 days. He now heads to South Australia to attempt to qualify for the Nationwide co-sanctioned Jacobs Creek Open


It has to be a world first for golf/tennis player to win professionally in both sports professional ranks, espically only over a 2 year period
