The NSW Legends Pro-Am proved to be another successful event on Friday 22nd November. The tournament featured 58 of Australia’s top professional golfers over the age of 50 playing for a share of the $15,000 in prizemoney kindly donated by local clubs and associate sponsors. The day itself was challenging, with the wind whipping up early before the first drive was hit in the morning field and sticking around until late in the afternoon.
The winner’s cheque of $2,646 went to inform Queensland professional Brad Burns who shot a remarkable 5 under par round of 65 which considering the conditions could possibly rate as one of the best rounds played at Hurstville Golf Course in recent times. Another 6 professionals shot under-par and a score of 1 over par rounded out the Top 10 (below). A big thanks must go to Kevin Greene who works tirelessly to make this event a success each year, the Lugarno Lions who keep us well-nourished and hydrated throughout the day and all our sponsors who without their generous contributions the event couldn’t take place.
We hope all participants had a great day with the professional in their group and we look forward to our 2020 Pro-Am where our local Professional Paul Skinner will hopefully take home the winners cheque in one of his first starts as a senior pro.
