2017 Schweppes City of Brisbane Pro Am
The Schweppes City of Brisbane Pro Am at Victoria Park attracted a strong field this year with amateurs and professionals from across South East Queensland and beyond all competing for one of the fantastic prizes provided by our generous sponsors. Conditions were at their best for Victoria Park with the greens rolling smooth and a picture perfect day.
Golf professionals Anthony Quayle, Daniel McGraw, Steven Jeffress and Peter Shaw found themselves at the top in a 4-way tie for this year’s Schweppes City of Brisbane Pro Am after all firing an impressive 8-under par at Victoria Park on Tuesday 12 September.
The morning field saw some tough competition for placings with 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th winners all scoring 37 points, but Cooper Barry was the clear front runner and overall winner in the morning field with 41 points, winning a Taylormade Driver, Dozen Titleist Pro V1s and Titleist Towel.
With the wind picking up for the afternoon field it was expected that scores may increase, but that couldn’t be further from the truth with Jason Michelmore taking the amateur field with an outstanding 44 points. Not far behind was Ron Williams 2nd with 42 points, Muktar Basha 3rd with 41 points, Adam Page 4th with 41 points and David Tan 5th 38 points.
As always, there were plenty of on-course offerings provided by our sponsors including Mr & Mrs G Riverbar with their famous duck pies, Schweppes refresh stations and Victoria Park’s market cart stall with fresh fruit, lolly buffet, Maleny Dairies ice cream and dutch pancakes.
The fun didn’t stop there though…
This year the Asahi Longest Drive Competition took place from the Ballroom Deck with some Long Drive World Champions keeping the crowd entertained, with Brendan Moylan smashing it 354m, while the golf professionals warmed up to see who could #swingforthecity best. Jacob Boyce came out on top after a tie breaker with a 334m drive, picking up a tidy sum for his efforts.
A special thank you to the sponsors of the 2017 Schweppes City of Brisbane Pro Am. Without their support, events like this cannot happen and their continued support to help drive the growth of professional golf is sincerely appreciated.
