Wodonga’s Zach Murray will captain the Victorian men’s amateur team at the 2017 Interstate Series in Perth in May.

Nineteen-year-old Murray will play his third men’s Interstate Series this year, this time with the honour of leading the eight-man team.

Murray led the Victorian juniors to a resounding win on his debut in 2014 and is elated to get the nod as captain for his state side once again.

“When I was captain of the junior team I went through undefeated and I think the team only lost three games,” Murray said.

“I feel a little bit more responsibility as captain, but I think it’s good for me because I play my best golf when there’s pressure and something to play for.”
