Antonio Murdaca has won two consecutive tournaments on the Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series following a sensational showing at the Burke Urban PGA Golf Classic.
Competing consistently at Murray Bridge Golf Club, outstanding rounds of 65, 65 and 63 across the three days lead the local to a tournament total of 11-under 193.
Finishing one shot behind Murdaca was round one leader Anthony Choat whose rounds of 63, 65 and 66 for 10-under 194 saw him hold a three shot lead over the remainder of the field.
A fellow South Australian local, Choat remained well and truly in contention throughout the tournament, starting his final round with six consecutive threes to turn a one shot deficit into a four shot lead after only seven holes.
However an in-form Murdaca, winner of the Flagstaff Hill Pro-Am only a week before, remained hot on his heels throughout the day.
Murdaca’s blistering stretch of four birdies in five holes midway through the final round turned his deficit to Choat into a one shot lead, a lead he was able to hold over the back nine to secure victory.
Overnight leader and the only Trainee Professional in the field, Connor Chant from Aston Hills Golf Club, endured a nightmare start to the day after a stunning score of 61 in round two.
A double bogey 6 on the opening hole was the first blunder for Chant, with a further two bogeys on his next two hole securing his fate for a final round total of 71 and a fourth place finish behind Andrew Schonewille in third place.
Chant was one of three players to tie for fourth, concluding the three-day tournament alongside Brady Watt and Scott Laycock.
The South Australian swing of the Ladbrokes Legends Tour now moves to Port Hughes for the Buildlogix Coppercoast Pro-Am.
