Tom Power Horan has won in a three-way playoff over Dale Brandt-Richards and Jarryd Felton to win the Mitchell & Brown Spalding Park Open.
Power Horan carded rounds of 72-66 and a 2-under-par round of 70 on Sunday to finish at 8-under-par for 54 holes and birdied the third playoff hole to close out the biggest win of his young career.
“I haven’t really had my best stuff of late so it was a bit surprising to play so well here this week,” said Power Horan who says he hasn’t many plans for the remainder of the year.
Adam Burdett who held a two shot lead heading into the final round stumbled early on the front-9 carding a 6-over-par 42 and was never in the hunt starting the back-9.
It was much the same for his playing partners in the final group with both Max McCardle and Tim Hart posting over par rounds of 74 and 75 respectively in what was a disappointing result for the final trio.
2016 WAPGA Champion Stephen Dartnell held a share of the lead with two holes to play before a wayward tee shot on the final hole which was not found lead to a double bogey.
“It’s an amazing event here and a great lead up to Kalgoorlie next week,” said Dartnell who has become one of the favourites each year at Geraldton which is an event renown for the best greens on the Ladbrokes PGA Pro-Am Series.
The road is a long one as players now head South towards the outback oasis of Kalgoorlie where lush fairways and greens will once again greet the best players from around Australasia when the TX Civil & Logistics WA PGA Championship tees off on Thursday next week.
