Dean Kinney has taken out the 2016 Australian Golf Digest Coach of the Year award!
Hosted at the SCG for the third year straight, the Australian Golf Digest Awards honour those who have done amazing things for Australian Golf this year.
As has become the tradition of the Australian Golf Digest Player of the Year Awards, everyone in attendance made their way on to the SCG arena for a special par-3 shootout under lights, with Senior Player of the Year winner Peter Fowler coming up trumps with the very first shot of the evening, stiffing a wedge to three feet on the purpose-built hole.
