Michael Maynard has proven for the third time in five years that he's the most dominant leftie with a golf club in his hand in Australia.
Maynard claimed victory in the National Left Handed Golfers Association Open Championship last week, a feat he also accomplished in 2017 and 2015.
The skillful player was runner up in 2016 and 2018, ensuring he has finished in the top two in all five trips to the Royal Hobart Golf Course.
Maynard claims his latest win is the sweetest, as he overcame a two shot deficit on the final day.
"To win it the first time was a pretty good feeling, to win it the second time proved it wasn't a fluke but to win it a third time is unbelievable," Maynard told the Argus.
"There a lot of good players out there so I definitely didn't think I would have this type of success."
After the first round of play was abandoned due to strong winds, the South West Rocks resident recorded a round two best of 75 to take an early lead before he dropped an additional shot to score 76 in round three to head into the final round trailing by two.
However, Maynard quickly turned the tables as he shot two under on the front nine and gained a three-shot advantage on his opponent.
Maynard dropped a couple of costly shots to open the door for his rival as they both went into the final hole in equal first position.
Maynard, who has played golf since he was a little "whippersnapper", managed to hold his nerves in check as he bested his opponent by two strokes to claim his third title.
"It was a very tight finish and he sort of slipped up on the last hole and I managed to fall over the line for the win," Maynard said.
"I guess you could say I pulled off a Steven Bradbury."
Maynard is eyeing off the possibility of travelling to Paris in August next year to compete in the World Left handed Golf Championship.
