Bond Breaks Bay Record to Win 2023 Aegean Messinia Pro-Am2 min read

2023 AEGEAN MESSINIA PRO-AM
COSTA NAVARINO, GREECE
13 – 17 SEPTEMBER 2023

 

Wales’ Liam Bond has been crowned the professional champion of the latest edition of the Aegean Messinia Pro-Am following a week that included setting a new course record at Costa Navarino and victory in a nail-biting playoff in the final round.

The hugely successful Pro-Am brought together 60 teams and their Professionals from 23 countries, but it was Bond who was able to finish on top after rounds of 69, his course record-breaking 62 at The Bay Course, and 70 to finish at -13 and ultimately to take the title.

Bond said: “I’m really excited to win this event, which is the best pro-am on our calendar in Europe and we’re looked after so well.

“The golf courses are immaculate, and the players will all agree that they are some of the finest courses in the world. I enjoyed The Bay Course the most with my course record round, so nine under par around there was really nice to achieve.”

Initially tying at -13 with Bond at the close of the final round was PGA of Spain professional, Liam Murray. After a halved first playoff hole the pair played the The Dunes course 18th hole again and an errant drive from Murray was enough to open the door for Bond to take advantage and secure his second title since winning the event in its previous Aegean Airlines Pro-Am guise.

PGA of Italy Professional, Alessandro Tadini, made every effort to compete with the pair of ‘Liams‘ but just missed out after a more settled final day prevented him from moving further in to the red, resulting in a third place finish for the previous champion.

The Pro-Am is the latest event in the new CPG International Series – an inclusive and innovative schedule of international tournaments in collaboration with its Member Country PGAs. Professional Winner, Bond, will receive an invitation to the Series Final, whilst all Professionals in the field have earnt Order of Merit points that could eventually build to qualification for the Series Final.

In the Team Pro-Am event it was Hakan Yamaç (PGA of Turkey) and his amateur teammates, Bogdan Jigman, Teodor Viorel and Catalina Jigman who took the honours with 283 points.

Seven points behind in second were Paolo Dellepiane Terreni (PGA of Italy), Paolo Lange, Nicola Guidi, and Federico Lange, who beat out Team Murray of Dimitar Georgiev, Momchil Shishkov and Todor Chakov on countback.
