GOLF can be a fickle game – just ask Daryl Myles.
The Moura golfer was in third spot coming into the final round of the Central Queensland men’s open championships in Rockhampton at the weekend.
Not only was the title at stake, but a coveted spot in the CQ inter-association representative team.
After a host of strong tournaments in places such as Theodore, Myles shot rounds of 76 and 83.
"I very disappointed with Sunday’s game," Myles said.
"Saturday was not too bad but a poor start for the front nine on Sunday put me totally out of contention for a win or even a top three position.
"The back nine was solid but a few minor errors cost me a few shots, instead of breaking par, I ended up shooting one over," the disappointed 35-year-old said.
"It was a good challenge competing against players from all over Queensland in two days of golf.
"I thought that [final] round had cost me the trip away [with the CQ rep team]. However some results went my way which was good."
It is his second selection in the CQ team.
Myles said he plans to get some practice in before the intra association competition in Caloundra in early November.
The Dawson Mine employee has been whacking a tiny white ball around for 15 years.
At school he played tennis but his dad introduced him to golf and he hasn’t looked back.
"I like the challenge – every day is different – rain, or playing at other courses."
Myles enjoys golf so much he is jetting off to Melbourne to see Tiger Woods when he heads Down Under.
