Tim Hart's lucrative Wynnum one-dayer
BY PGA of Australia | 05 Dec 2013
Despite hitting his opening tee shot over the fence, first year Trainee Professional, Tim Hart, overcame a slow start to record his largest professional victory to date, taking out the $60,000 Bartons/BMD Pro-Am at the Wynnum Golf Club in Brisbane.
Hart would go on to record nine birdies over his closing 17 holes to shoot a seven under par 63, finishing one shot ahead local, Michael Wright. A further shot back were Marcus Cain and Max McCardle, the latter of whom continued on with his fine run of form which saw him finish inside the top 10 at last week’s Emirates Australian Open.
It has been a fruitful couple of months for Hart, after taking out the PGA National Futures Championship at Batemans Bay last month. “My game has been in good shape the past few months and even though my opening tee shot was not what I wanted, to make bogey and limit the damage really set me up for the remainder of the day,” Hart said. “There is no doubt that this one of the premier Pro-Ams in the country and it feels great to be able to add my name to a champions list that boasts some of the greatest players Australia has ever produced,” remarked Hart.
Hart won nearly $11,000 for his victory
Professionals will now have a week off before taking part in the final Sunshine Tour event for 2013 at the Oxley Pro Am next Friday.
