Simon Hawkes has claimed his second Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series win in 2019 with a one shot victory at the Murrumbidgee Country Club Furphy Pro-Am.
In the final event of the ACT swing of the series a strong field gathered at Murrumbidgee Country Club in perfect conditions.
Defending champion Hawkes’ impressive round of 7-under 65 saw him claim back-to-back wins at the venue.
Following a steady start to his round, Hawkes put his foot down on the back-9 with birdies on the 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th holes leading the Tasmanian to victory.
“It’s great to be back at Murrumbidgee Country Club and very happy to win here back-to-back,” said Hawkes.
“I had a great group of amateurs today and we had a whole lot of fun out there.”
Getting some competitive golf in before he heads back to the Japan Golf Tour was Brendan Jones whose round of 6-under 66 saw him to a runner-up finish.
Rounding out the top five on 3-under 69 were Anthony Choat, Colin Banham, Jay Mackenzie, James Nitties, Matthew Millar, Alex Edge, Darren Beck and Anthony Marchesani.
The Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series now moves to Queensland for the Brookwater Pro-Am from 26-17 April, 2019.
