PGA of Spain Professional, Liam Murray, claimed the 13th BlackSeaRama Vivacom Pro-Am title with a scintillating final round in testing conditions at BlackSeaRama Golf & Villas.
Despite taking the first-round lead, Murray found himself behind and needing a strong finish on the final day to overcome a number of experienced players including Henrik Engdahl (PGA of Greece), Federico Elli (PGA of Italy) and British Professional, Liam Bond.
With strong winds and firm and fast greens, the conditions suited Murray’s natural low-ball flight, as he went on to card a final round 69 (-3) to finish on 211 (-4) for the tournament, two strokes ahead of second place, Guillaume Watremez (PGA of Belgium).
On his performance, Murray said: “I played fantastic today. I probably left a few shots out there on the greens but I hit an enormous drive on 17 to set up birdie, which then gave me enough breathing space to negotiate the difficult 18th hole, which so often trips players up.”
In the Pro-Am team event, team Watremez (with amateurs Martin Favert, Barbara Deronchene and Benoit Pierlot) took first-place honours through a scintillating final round points score of 94, taking their total for the three days to 266 points (-50).
The BlackSeaRama Pro-Am is a 54-hole Pro-Am event sanctioned by the Confederation of Professional Golf [CPG], in which over 30 PGA Professionals and teams play rounds at Lighthouse Golf Resort, Thracian Cliffs and BlackSeaRama Golf & Villas.
