Tim Hart has continued his exceptional Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series form at Kooralbyn Valley Golf Course, firing a round of 7-under 65 to claim victory in the 24/7 Golf Kooralbyn Valley Pro-Am.
Testing conditions greeted players at the difficult Kooralbyn Valley layout with gusting winds and lightning-fast greens presenting a challenge.
The wild weather did little to deter Hart, however, who posted a fantastic bogey-free round to finish three shots clear of European Tour professionals Sam Brazel and Deyen Lawson.
“I struck the ball well out there and made some crucial 15-foot putts to save par when I needed them,” said Hart.
“This is the second time I have seen the course so I felt comfortable knowing where to hit it.
“I’ve been playing well recently which gave me the confidence to be aggressive off the tee.”
Enjoying a few weeks break from Europe, European Tour professionals Sam Brazel and Deyen Lawson have each fired rounds of 4-under 68 to finish in a tie for second place.
“This is a great golf course and I really enjoyed the challenge of the layout,” said Brazel.
“I played good golf out there including a few great saves; the greens were outstanding, full credit to all the staff here at Kooralbyn.”
“I made a few soft bogeys out there,” said Lawson.
“I was fortunate that each time I made a bogey I bounced straight back with a birdie, which kept the round together.”
The next best placed professional was Brett Rankin who finished in outright fourth place on 3-under 69.
The next stop on the Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series is the Bell Property Bulimba Pro-Am on Friday 2 August 2019.
