An Olympic time capsule is buried at Royal Queensland 10 years out from the 2032 Games
21 November 2022 - The 2022 Fortinet Australian PGA Championship week is underway, with an Olympian and the defending champion kicking it off with the burying of a time capsule 10 years out from the 2032 Brisbane Olympic Games.
Two proud Queenslanders, the 2021 champion Jed Morgan and veteran Scott Hend did the honours, burying the capsule containing some of their golfing memorabilia including gloves, signed balls and a golf hat, as well as letters of encouragement for the competitors in 2032 when the Olympic Games golf comes to Royal Queensland.
The capsule was buried alongside the putting green at Royal Queensland, and will be opened in 10 years' time.
A VNR of the time capsule event and interviews with Hend and Morgan is available here.
Morgan, an RQ member, won the championship by a record 11 shots in January this year.
Meanwhile 2022 Open Champion Cameron Smith, the major drawcard this week in his home city, completed another round of preparations at Royal Queensland, where he played pennants for the club both at junior and senior level.
Smith will be presented with the keys to the city of Brisbane by Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner.
