Tony Mellen is the founding father and Dick Dastardly of the COD and has been a tournament fixture since its inception.

A former Green Jacket winner in controversial circumstances, he is regularly touted as a pre-tournament chance only to zig zag his way through the three days.


A philosopher, spiritualist and renowned fitness fanatic, Tony once almost perished paddling the Goulburn River in 40+ degree temperatures to raise money for breast cancer awareness.  It is a wonder Tony manages to keep himself in shape given his sweet tooth.
