Dane McArdle has won the Gunnedah Stripes Engineering Services Pro-Am in challenging conditions with a scorecard of 2-under 68 at Gunnedah Golf Club.
Strong winds whipped across the course throughout the day resulting in desert storm-like conditions and making scoring almost impossible for the 27 Professionals teeing it up.
The Queenslander was the only player to break par in the Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series event.
“The golf course where I’ve been working recently closed down so I’m going to focus more on my playing,” McArdle said.
“To come out and get another win on the Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series is a great way to start.”
Experienced professionals Andrew Evans, Matt Stieger, Luke Whitbread and young-gun Jay Mackenzie tied for second place at even-par 70.
Former Gunnedah Pro-Am winner Andre Stolz completed the tournament at 1-over 71 alongside up and comer Bradley Doherty.
The NSW/ACT swing of the Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series will move to Kew Country Club this Sunday.
