Rhein fades back in Australian Open field
FORMER Lismore golfer Rhein Gibson was not able to repeat his second round efforts finishing one-over par at the Australian Open in Sydney.
Gibson went into the weekend rounds with plenty of confidence after shooting a six-under par 66 on Friday.
The 30-year-old now lives in America but still has links to the region with Lismore Golf Club professional Peter Jaeger caddying for him in a handful of tournaments.
Gibson finished the fourth round tied equal 20th while American Jordan Spieth won the event for a second time finishing three-under par.
Spieth sunk a 12-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to beat Australian Cameron Smith and Ash Hall in a three-way playoff.
