An EVCA Twenty20 game is certainly not the 18th green of the Irish Open or the Bermuda Championship on the PGA Tour, but Lucas Herbert showed the same calmness under pressure with a cricket bat on Tuesday night as he did with the putter in his two tournament wins earlier this year.
Making a cameo appearance with Sedgwick in the Emu Valley Cricket Association Twenty20 competition, the 41st ranked golfer in the world showed his sporting skills don't just rest with a driver or pitching wedge.
The Rams needed four runs off the final ball to win the game against Marong and Herbert produced a Steve Waugh-style slog sweep to find the fence and clinch victory.
Ironically, the final over was bowled by Alex Gorrie - Course superintendent at Herbert's home golf club, Neangar Park.
Herbert top-scored for the Rams, with 39 not out off 25 balls.
Herbert didn't look out of place against a Marong attack that included marquee player Brent Hamblin - one of the premier pacemen in the Bendigo District Cricket Association.
He made a cautious start, and was seven runs off his first 10 balls, before launching late in the innings to guide the Rams home by three wickets.
While he looked most comfortable hitting the ball straight, Herbert hit five boundaries in total, including a cut shot backward of point and a pull shot over square leg.

Chasing Marong's total of 8-146, skipper Jordan Ilsley (38) and opener Ryan Grundy (31) had put the Rams in control before a middle-order collapse swung the match the Panthers' way.
Sedgwick needed 26 runs off the final three overs when Herbert went up a gear.
16 runs were taken off the 18th over which forced Marong to throw the ball to Hamblin for the penultimate over.
Hamblin only conceded two runs and took a wicket, leaving the Rams requiring eight runs off the final six balls with three wickets in hand.
Herbert and tailender Lucas Baldwin could only manage singles off four of the first five balls of the over, leaving Herbert on strike requiring a four to win the game.
Gorrie's off-spinner was full on middle and leg stump, Herbert whacked it through midwicket and split two of the boundary riders on the leg-side.
Herbert's heroics gave Sedgwick a 2-0 record.

Earlier, Ilsley 3-25 and Hunter Austin 3-29 did the job with the ball for the Rams.
Amarpreet Singh (57 off 37 balls) did a great job with the bat for the Panthers.
Ryan Murphy (3-36) was the most successful Marong bowler, but Hamblin (2-14 off four overs) was clearly their best with the ball.
Spring Gully and United also moved to a 2-0 record.
United took down Emu Creek by five wickets.
The Tigers needed just 15 overs to chase down Emu Creek's score of 117, thanks largely to Mac Whittle (37 off 17 balls) and Harry Whittle (33 not out off 14 balls).
Luke Bennett (36 and 3-27) was Emu Creek's best player.
Kane Goldsworthy and Harry Whittle took three wickets each for the Tigers.
Emu Creek's new marquee player Adam Ward (1 and 0-27) had a debut to forget.
Spring Gully scored an emphatic 72-run win over West Bendigo.
Jake Doengan made 80 off 56 for the Crows in a team score of 7-179. Rhys Webb added 38 off 20 balls.

Marcus Williamson took three wickets for the Redbacks.
In reply, West Bendigo dawdled to 9-107, with Will Perryman (34) best with the bat.
Spinner Beauden Rinaldi (2-8) opened the bowling and removed marquee player Matt Dwyer for five.
Dwyer has made seven runs in two innings for the Redbacks this summer and has been dismissed by spin in both matches.
In the final match, California Gully defeated Axe Creek by 34 runs.
The Cobras posted 7-165 with valuable contributions from Travis Nolan (36 not out), Jordan Knight (33), Justin Bice (24 off 15 balls) and new marquee player Daniel Clohesy (22 off 10 balls).
Jesse Trenfield (2-21) was the pick of the Axe Creek attack.
Axe Creek marquee player Kyle Humphrys (37 off 29 balls) gave his side a bright start, but when he was dismissed it was always going to be tough to reel in the Cobras' score.
Joel Bish chipped in with 29 in the total of 131.
Eathen Collins (2-17) and Bice (2-18) bowled well for the Cobras.
