Andrew Evans and Tim Hart have joined Neven Basic at the top of the Tuncurry Beach Bums Pro-Am leaderboard to win with rounds of 3-under 69.

Neven BasicBasic fired out of the blocks in the morning field to set the clubhouse lead which was later equalled by Hart and Evans in the afternoon.

Returning to the challenging Tuncurry Golf Course layout for the first time in over a decade, the field of 60 professionals praised the course for its vast improvements.

“This layout is one of the best we’ve played and the greens today were perfect,” Basic said.

“It was great to be at the top of the leaderboard today after coming close earlier in the week.”

Yet another victory for Hart sees the Queenslander further extend his Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series Order of Merit lead over fellow statesman Brett Rankin.

Breanna Gill fired an impressive round of 2-under 70 to claim second place ahead of Dane McArdle and an in-form Rick Kulacz who tied for fifth place at 1-under par.

The NSW/ACT swing of the Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series next moves to the Hawks Nest Beachside Pro-Am.
