Local knowledge secures win at QLD Schweppes Manager/Pro Day

Monday 26, Aug 2019

Event host, and GMA Member, Steve Middleton, and resident PGA Pro, Brayden Campbell, have taken out the 2019 Schweppes Manager/Pro Day by five points at Bribie Island Golf Club.

The format was a 4BBB and Individual Stableford, played on a beautiful mid-20 degree day with light winds.

We started out the day with some coffee/smoothies and catching up with old friends. A moment of silence for Jarrod Lyle - #doingitforjarrod - started the official proceedings with the group supporting CHALLENGE with $500 being raised on the day via direct donation and raffle tickets. The players all had some element of yellow in their wardrobe or playing attire.

National partner, De Bortoli Wines, donated a 3L double magnum bottle of red wine from their limited range, helping to increase the excitement on the raffle. The double magnum was won by local pro, Brayden Campbell, who I'm sure has many new friends calling him!

Broc Greenhalgh (QLD PGA Manager) gave us an update on upcoming PGA events and promotions this year – the PGA Championship looks to be a real opportunity for all clubs to engage with and to show local community support.

With a field of 32 players, including several of our GMA national partners in attendance, you could not have asked for a much better day out networking with industry peers and enjoying the game that we are all so passionate about, as well supporting a very worthy cause.

Thanks to Brad Jones, from Schweppes Australia, for his continued support. Also, thanks to Nick Thornton from MPower MSL, in assisting with online scoring for the day - it made things much easier.

Many of the partners in attendance on the day were new to our members, so it was great opportunity to meet new faces and we look forward to working with them in coming years.
