Dimitrios Papadatos joins Australian golf royalty as two-time winner of Vic Open


Sydneysider Dimitrios Papadatos has joined legends of Australian golf, Peter Thomson and Kel Nagle, as a two-time winner of the Vic Open, PGA Australia reports.

The 30-year-old produced a perfect six-under during Sunday’s round of 66 to finish one shot clear of playing partner, Ben Campbell.

“I wasn’t sure if I still had it in me,” Papadatos said of his win.

“It goes to show I didn’t fluke it the first time. I’m just so happy to be getting my game and playing well again.”

Papadatos went up against a number of strong contenders this year, with Melbourne local, John Lyras, also giving him a run for his money over the weekend.

This is Papadatos’ fifth professional win and means he also has a spot in the field at St Andrews for the 150th Open this year.
