The Ron Crouch Transport Wagga Wagga Country Club Ladbrokes Pro-Am will again see some of Australia’s best golfers compete for $40,000 in prize money. A mix of previous champions, in-form players, Australian greats and young guns will all be trying to take home the winner’s cheque.
Over the years the Ron Crouch Transport Wagga Wagga Country Club Ladbrokes Pro-Am has boasted a very impressive honour role including last year’s champion Jordan Zunic.
Zunic is a two-time ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia winner and he finished his 2017 campaign with a runner-up finish in a playoff at the Australian PGA Championship at RACV Royal Pines Resort. He will be back to defend his pro-am title along with previous champions Dale Brandt-Richards (2016) and Mitchell A. Brown (2015).
“We take pride in getting our champions back to defend their title and it’s wonderful to see Jordan in the field.” said Ashley Briggs Pro-Am Chairman.
Heading to the Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series after a strong start to their ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia seasons are James Nitties, who is currently second on the Order of Merit thanks to his runner up finish in the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth and Matthew Millar who won the REBEL Sport New Zealand Masters earlier this year.
“The Ron Crouch Transport Wagga Wagga Country Club Ladbrokes Pro-Am always attracts a great field. The thing I’m excited about this year is so many of our players have been in great form. I think we could be in for some record scoring over the two days,” said PGA NSW/ACT Tournament Coordinator Peter Welden
Making sure the young brigade doesn’t have it all their own way will be two of Australia’s greats Craig Parry and Peter O’Malley. Both have been great supporters of the event over the years and with a swag of worldwide victories between them they bring a whole lot of experience.
