News Team Henselite Holty is Australia's Indoor Champion!
August 27, 2014

Henselite’s NSW manager David Holt really proved he practices what he preaches with another huge win at the Australian Indoor Championships at Tweed Heads Bowls Club last week.

Feeling like a change from his usual Size 4 Dreamline XG in the White Breaker colour that he has used for a while now David simply picked up a different set in bright pink Coral colour for the trip north and took to them like a breeze.

In the final against 2010 winner and Australian vice-captain Brett Wilkie although David made the better start to the game and took out the first set 9-6 Brett wasn’t going to give up lightly and turned on some amazing shots to take the second 7-4.

After two ends of the tie-break again the ends were tied at one shot each with this epic confrontation coming down to the winner of the final end. With the shot changing hands pretty much with every bowl delivered it was anyone’s guess who would take out the title but agonisingly for Brett his last drive shot with David holding two shots hit the jack but only managed to feather it about a quarter of an inch and David was champion.

“Any win against Brett is a great one but particularly up here on the Tweed carpet that he knows so well is particularly satisfying” said David. “I’ve been here quite a few times before and struggled a little but my Dreamline XG found a really consistent line on every rink I played this week”.

Having won the outdoor Australian Champion of Champions title in Adelaide last October David now gets the stupendous opportunity to represent his adopted country as Australia’s representative in both World Champion of Champions in Christchurch at the end of November and now the 2015 World Cup at Warilla next April.
