Victorian Rory Bourke has continued his fine form in the west, winning the Urban Quarter Dunsborough Lakes Golf Club Pro-Am just six days after his first Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series win in WA for 2019.
Whilst the world’s best surfers were tackling the nearby Surfers Point break for the World Surf League’s Margaret River Pro, some of Australia’s best professionals tackled the Dunsborough Lakes layout in the fourth edition of the pro-am.
Players faced a strong breeze and cool conditions but scoring was still hot; Rory Bourke firing seven birdies and two bogies in tough conditions for a round of 5-under 67.
“I’m putting really nicely and when you’re doing that it takes the pressure off the rest of the game,” said Bourke.
“The course was fantastic and Len Thomas (PGA Life Member) and his team as always put on another amazing event.”
Sitting just one shot behind Bourke in second place was Andrew Schonewille with a round of 4-under 68.
Third place outright went to South Australian Antonio Murdaca at 3-under 69, followed by Daniel Hoeve, Michael Long, Brad Moules, Brody Martin and Brady Watt all shooting 2-under 70 to be tied for fourth.
Players now head a little further North to the Nexus Risk Services Southwest Open hosted by Bunbury Golf Club.
