The North Coast Swing of the Labrokes PGA NSW/ACT Pro-Am Series teed off in perfect conditions at the Kew Pro-Am
The Kew golf club has been hosting PGA Pro Am events for over 20 years and the club loves having the professionals.
“It’s great to be part of the North Coast swing. Being able to work with the other clubs in the region and build some publicity for the area is very rewarding," Deniece Merryfull the clubs Operations Manager said
"We also like helping the young Professionals in giving them playing opportunities."
Scott Arnold, who is making his way back from an injury shot a fine 4-under par 66 in the morning which would take some chasing down.
“These greens are some of the best I’ve played on even compared to the courses we play in Europe," Arnold who in recent years has been playing on the European Challenge Tour said.
It would be the ever consistent Matthew Millar that would make sure the spoils were shared.
His winning 4-under par 66 came with a heavy heart. Millar’s caddy while playing in Europe passed away during the week.
“This ones for Jimmy Main," said Millar.
Former U.S. Tour player James Nitties would finish one shot behind the leaders with a 3-under par 67.
Rounding out the top five were Nathan Green and Dale Brandt-Richards who shot 2-under par 70’s
The Ladbrokes PGA NSW/ACT Pro-Am Series will head to Port Macquarie for the next event.
