Simon Pope, Head Professional at Links Lady Bay took out the 35th edition of the Dave Potter Honda FHGC Pro-Am by a narrow one shot margin.

Pope took advantage of the perfectly presented Flagstaff Hill Golf Club recording five birdies and one bogey to finish on 4-under 68.

“I’ve been coming here for 20 years and it’s great to see so many familiar faces in the room. The support for professional golf from Flagstaff Hill is outstanding,” said Pope.

2016 Oates Vic Open winner Michael Long posted 3-under 69 to finish runner-up with New South Welshman Dylan Stollery.

Local duo of Campbell Rawson (South Australian based, New Zealander) and Max McCardle finished tied for fourth at 2-under the card.

Peter Cooke, Mitchell McComas and Tom Power Horan tied for sixth place at 1-under while Connor Chant, Glenn Joyner and Ruben Lal round out the top-10 at even par.
