Dane McArdle has fired a round of 4-under 67 to claim victory at the Whitsunday Green Proserpine Pro-Am and take his first Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series win in his home state of Queensland.
Challenging conditions greeted professionals after overnight rain made for soft conditions on course, while a strong breeze blowing from the south-east would also test players at Proserpine Golf Club.
The Brisbane based professional has been working hard on his game following a decision earlier this year to commit to playing more events, which has today paid off in the wake of further success in Tasmania earlier this year.
“My plan this year is to play as many events as possible,” said McArdle following his second Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series win.
“I have been working really hard on my game since the beginning of the year and I think playing more has allowed me to feel more comfortable out here.
“I hit the ball solid out there and chipped in twice which helped, but the key for me was that I controlled the ball well into the wind.”
Jacob Boyce and Patrick Joseph completed the tournament in second place on 3-under 68, followed by Luke Paroz and Shae Wools-Cobb on 1-under 70 to round out the top five.
The Proserpine Golf Club has made a welcomed return to the Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series following a long absence with players praising the course conditions and the club for a great event.
The next stop on the Ladbrokes PGA Pro-Am Series will be the Sarina Golf Club for the Golf King Mackay Sarina Pro-Am.
