Deyen Lawson has won his second Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series event in as many days at the 2019 Coca Cola City of Brisbane Pro-Am, firing 8-under 57 to share victory with TJ Gooding-King, Aaron Pike and Anthony Quayle.
Hosted at Victoria Park Golf Complex, Gooding-King and Pike braved the cold weather in the morning field to make the most of soft conditions and perfect greens, setting the number for the afternoon field to chase.
European Tour player Deyen Lawson and JGTO Tour contender Anthony Quayle headlined the afternoon field where conditions on course remained settled with just a light breeze blowing for the duration.
Trainee Professional TJ Gooding-King received a last-minute entry courtesy of an amateur withdrawal and certainly made the most of the opportunity to claim his first equal win on the Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series.
“I’ve always enjoyed the course here and I’m thrilled with my finish,” said Gooding-King.
“I putted well today and just made a couple of long putts when I needed them.”
Indooroopilly based player Aaron Pike finished bogey-free for the day and closed his round with an eagle, par and birdie to jump to the top of the leaderboard.
Pike has been working on his mental side of the game and credits this for his good form.
“I played with my good mate and fellow Professional Clinton Lourens today,” said Pike. “I just kept the ball in play and didn’t make any mistakes out there.”
Sanctuary Cove-based Professional Anthony Quayle is currently enjoying a five-week break from Japan and supporting the local events on the Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series.
“It’s a fantastic course and a lot of fun to play,” said Quayle.
“There are many birdie opportunities out there but you have to try not to get ahead of yourself or it can bring you undone.
“I only had one bay hole out there; I hit it out of bounds on the 9th hole but managed to scramble an eagle with my second ball to save my par.”
In yet another tight finish, Steven Jeffress, Anthony Choat, Daniel Nisbet, Matthew Millar and Brett Rankin have completed the top-9 tied for fifth place at 7-under 58 the card, with Kade McBride rounding out the top-10.
The next stop on the Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series schedule is the Howeston Pro-Am on Thursday 18 July 2019.
