Stars line up for 40th celebration
USPGA Stars Coming to Wynnum Golf Club
"One of the highlights of the year..."
The 40th installment of the Bartons/BMD Wynnum Pro-Am will likely see one of the best fields ever assembled for the event celebrating a long history and partnership between the PGA, Bartons, BMD and the Wynnum Golf Club.
The AU$50,000 event, the richest one-day tournament on the Ladbrokes PGA Pro-Am Series will be held Monday 3rd December at Wynnum Golf Club, allowing a stellar field to take advantage of being the day following the Australian PGA Championship which will conclude on Sunday 2 December at RACV Royal Pines Resort.
Two-time PGA Tour winner John Senden will headline this year’s field; other notables include Rod Pampling, Peter Senior, Rodger Davis, Dimi Papadatos, Ashley Hall, Rhein Gibson, James Nitties, Matthew Millar and Damien Jordan. Defending champion Troy Moses who was joint winner with Steven Jones in 2017 following impressive rounds of 9-under 61, is back to defend his title.
A schedule of celebratory events are planned for the presentation evening to mark the 40th Pro-Am including auction, player interviews and live entertainment from Sam Kekovich. There will also be a number of sporting celebrities playing in the event including Ben Ikin, Michael Hancock and Andrew Gee in which will certainly add to this momentous occasion.
PGA (QLD/NT) State Manager Broc Greenhalgh said the Bartons/BMD Wynnum Pro-Am is a fitting end to the 2018 Ladbrokes PGA Pro-Am Series.
“The Wynnum Pro-Am has always been one of the highlights of the year though this year we have one of the strongest fields we have ever seen which is a great way to celebrate the 40th anniversary” Greenhalgh said.
“The great support from the likes of John Senden, Peter Senior and Rod Pampling is primarily due to the commitment the event has shown to PGA Professionals for so many years, and we are looking forward to seeing the crowds again coming out to watch the star studded field.”
Thanks to Bartons/BMD and Wynnum Golf Club, the event is one of the longest running pro-am events in the country and Bartons Dealer Principal Mark Beitz is excited to have reached this milestone with such great momentum.
Over 80 PGA Professionals will tee it up alongside sponsors and amateurs teeing off from 6am with the marquee players scheduled from 11.30am.
Entry to Wynnum Golf Club will be free for the public to catch some of the best golfers in the country compete for the AU$50,000 prize purse.
