Ablett shines in Las Vegas


Lee-on-the-Solent's James Ablett brushed aside a week-long illness to hit the jackpot at Las Vegas.

The former South Regin No 1 triumphed at the 16th Annual Las Vegas Classic Pro-Am.

Having had to withdraw from the previous week's event in Scottsdale due to illness, Ablett stormed to a five-shot victory in the Nevada desert.

Fellow South Region professionals Andy Raitt and Jamie Harris finished second and third respectively.

Raitt's team claimed a comfortable victory in the Pro-Am, with Darren Prosser's team second and Jamie Harris' third.

The action-packed event featured a Welcome Challenge Day at the exclusive Cascata Golf Club won by Prosser, followed by tournament rounds at Rio Secco, Primm Valley and Las Vegas Paiute Resort.

The Las Vegas Classic Pro-Am is just one of The American Golf Holiday's Pro-Am Tour events.

Other include The Sawgrass Classic, The Pro-Am Tour at Pebble Beach, The Arizona Classic, The California Classic, The Scottsdale Classic, The Hawaiian Classic and The Whistling Straits Classic.
