Touring professional Bree Arthur will bring a world of experience with her to Wagga when she arrives as the headline act at this month’s Women’s Sureway Classic.
Now based in Sydney, the former Queenslander has spent the last six seasons on the European Tour, managing five top-10 finishes, including a career-best second at the Ladies Spanish Open in 2013. Three times she led an event heading into the final day.
Arthur said she’s excited to be heading to the Wagga Country Club for the March 29 event, where she’ll be happy to pass on advice to local golfers.
“I like meeting new people, playing new courses and helping out ladies with tips,” Arthur said.
So what’s the secret to a good round?
“I’m still looking for it!” she said. “If anything, these days, it’s the mental side. It’s 90 percent of the game, for all players. Even if it’s going through a routine every shot, and not just getting a club out and going whack.”
Chair of the Classic, Judy Ferguson, said they’re rapt to have Bree’s experience.
“The Sureway’s been going for six years and we’ve been fortunate to have someone from the Ladies Professional Golf Association down here for the last four years,” Ferguson said.
The Classic carries a purse of $500 for the winner.
