Fast finishing Keating wins ALPG Club Car Series

Victorian Stacey Keating finished the 2015/16 ALPG Tour season in style last week by winning the Brisbane International at McLeod Country Golf Club, followed by a playoff loss at the BWAC Yamba Pro-Am 2 days later.

Queenslander Katelyn Must survived the playoff against Keating and Norway’s Tonje Daffinrud in Yamba to take out her first ALPG title, after the trio had tied at four-under 69.

These finishes ensured that Keating overtook long-time leader New Zealand’s Cathryn Bristow to win the 2016 ALPG Club Car Series and collect a $5000 bonus, provided jointly by McLeod Country Golf Club and Yamba Golf Club for the best performed player over both events.

The dynamic end to the season meant that Keating helped herself to $17,750 in prizemoney in just three days, not a bad way to conclude the 2016 ALPG Tour season in which the 29-year old won three events.

“It has been a great season and this is a good way to finish. I have been playing well the past few weeks without seeing the results so it is a good feeling to finish this way.” Keating said.

“Thanks so much to Kevin Gates and Club Car for their sponsorship; it is great that we have the Club Car bonus pool to play for across our pro-ams”

Club Car representative Kevin Gates was delighted to present Keating with her second Club Car Series trophy, while announcing that ClubCar have extended their sponsorship of the ALPG Club Car Series for an additional three years.
