Bermagui Country Club
PGA Legends Pro-Am, October 23-24.
In a field littered with Ladbrokes Legends Tour stars, maybe the biggest of them all came away the winner in the 36-hole Bermagui Legends Pro-Am.
Peter Senior shot a tournament low round of 5-under Par 67 on Monday and followed that up with a 2-under Par 70 Tuesday to finish three shots clear of New South Welshman, David Merriman at 4-under the card.
Senior cruised around the tricky Bermagui layout, acknowledging that his sharp iron play and consistent putting was the key in mastering the small and slick greens.
He carded 8 birdies and an eagle across his two rounds while only making three bogeys to comfortably claim the title.
Rounding out the top-5 were Darryl Purchase (-3), Darren Rix and Steven Aisbett (-2).
Last year’s winner, Mike Harwood managed a commendable defence of his title, finishing equal 10th at 1-over par.
The picturesque layout in the small seaside town of Bermagui is fast becoming a favourite stop on the Ladbrokes Legends Tour, having expanded to a two-day event this year due to the positive feedback received following the 2016 event.
This is Senior’s fifth win of the year on the Ladbrokes Legends Tour.
Gerald Wright won the Men’s amateur stableford competition on Monday with 36 points and Barbara Stolk won the Ladies section with 40 points.
On Tuesday Wayne Buick won the Men’s amateur with 39 points and in the Ladies section Katrina Hando from Howlong GC had the win with 39 points.
Thanks go to all the sponsors and volunteer workers who helped make this day so successful.
