Rory Bourke has won the Get Wines Direct Heidelberg Golf Club Pro-Am at Heidelberg Golf Club playing in hot, windy Victorian conditions.
A total of 59 players battled it out in the heat where Bourke fired an impressive 7-under 65 to top the leaderboard.
Struggling with his recent form, the win at Heidelberg is a big boost for Bourke.
“My form has been absolutely terrible to the point where I almost gave golf away,” he said. “I have worked hard with my coach Tim Wood and it’s nice to see some results.”
“The course was in stunning condition, almost as good as we play all year so thanks to them and a huge thank you to Get Wines Direct for sponsoring and to the club for hosting the event.”
Firm fairways and fast greens made for exciting play with Tim Hart making the most of a rare morning start, firing 6-under 66 to take the morning lead.
A host of players shot under par in the afternoon, including James Hartley and Ruben Lal whose scores of 6-under 66 saw them join Hart in a tie for second place.
