MONDAY’S inaugural $10,000 Evolution Copy Print Solutions Neangar Park Pro-Am has attracted a quality field.
Local stars Andrew Martin and Kris Mueck will face stiff competition from a field that includes former US PGA Tour player Euan Walters and regular Pro-Am winner David Brandson.
Walters’ career-best win is the 2004 Jacob’s Creek Open which was co-sanctioned by the Nationwide Tour in the United States.
That win catapulted him on to the US PGA Tour in 2005.
Martin and Mueck are in good form having tied for second at Thursday’s Stuart Appleby Cohuna Pro-Am.
That result saw Mueck maintain his number one ranking on the Pro-Am Series order of Merir.
He has earned $31,764.70 in 16 events to be almost $8000 clear of second placed Chris Gaunt.
Martin is in fifth place, with $20,827.73 from 10 events played.
Bransdon is seventh on the rankings, with $19,731.71 from 12 tournaments.
Walters won the Cohuna event, shooting a five-under par 67 to finish one shot clear of a group of six players that included Martin, Mueck and Brandson.
That quartet teed-off on Friday in the opening round of the 36-hole Border Open at Barham Golf and Country Club.
Monday’s Neangar Park Pro-Am is a shotgun start from 12.30pm.
Mueck is in the opening group off the first tee alongside Neangar Park Golf Club vice-president Sam Baker, Cr Mark Weragoda and Cr James Williams.
Martin is in the second group off the first tee, while Bransdon and Walters start their rounds on the par-four 18th.
It’s free entry for spectators on Monday.
