Herbert goes back-to-back with a 62 at Axedale

Lucas Herbert completed the Bendigo region double on the adidas PGA Pro-Am Series with a runaway win in the Symes Motors Axedale BMW Pro-Am today.

A day after shooting an equal course record 9-under-par 61 to claim the pro-am at his junior club, Neangar Park, Herbert flirted with a 59 before carding a 7-under-62 to beat fellow Victorians Cameron Kelly and Euan Walters by four shots.

The Axedale victory was a first for the 27-year-old who ran third and seventh in his previous appearances.


Preparing for the LIV Adelaide event later this month, Herbert was 7-under through 11 holes but his bid for a 59, to match the Axedale record held by Kris Mueck, was halted by pars on 12, 13, 14 and 16.

A bogey on the par-4 17th ended up costing him back-to-back 61s to celebrate his return home.


“Today was solid. Similar to yesterday I thought I played reasonable enough and made some pretty good putts,” Herbert said.

“It’s tricky around here. You can get yourself in some tough positions very easily.

“I managed to avoid as many of those as possible and put some numbers on the board which was nice.”
