Murray Lott has taken out the PGA Professionals Championship of South East Queensland at Sanctuary Cove Golf and Country Club with a score of 6 under par 64 which included five birdies, one eagle and one bogey.

As leading qualifier Lott not only wins his way to the PGA Professionals Championship Final at Hamilton Island from 31 October to 2 November, he also receives return airfares to the final as well as an exemption into the 2018 QLD PGA Championship.

Lott was a winner of the PGA Professionals Championship Final in 2007 and now a PGA Teaching Professional at Victoria Park Golf Complex, is excited about returning to Hamilton Island.

“Hamilton Island is one of the most amazing golfing experiences in the world and after the disappointment of not qualified over the past couple of years, it makes today even more rewarding," Lott said.

“I am looking forward to representing South East Queensland in the Final and with the added bonus of an exemption into the QLD PGA Championship next year I couldn’t be happier.”

Runner up was Warwick Golf Club Head Professional Sam Eaves who will make his first appearance to Hamilton Island and will also be joined by the likes of two time champion and Gailes Golf Club Head Professional Matthew Docking, the lone female entry Jade Fisher and nine others who have qualified for the PGA Professionals Championship Final.
