Olsen wins on homesoil
Tuesday, 2 October 2012
The E-Z-GO PGA Legends Tour kicked off its Victorian swing this week with star rookie Kym Olsen notching tournament victory number eight for the year on his home course, The National, on the Mornington Peninsula.
Olsen, who won the Tour School earlier in the year, had already won seven times on the Legends Tour despite only turning Professional at the age of 51.
A virtual unknown in Australia before this year, Olsen spent much of his adult life overseas and never had the opportunity to turn Professional until last year.
He fired rounds of 69 and 73 at the National Legends Charity Pro-Am to beat European Seniors Tour winners Michael Harwood and Terry Price by a single stroke.
The over-50's will play four more events in Victoria, including the Senior Victorian Open at Cardinia Beaconhills on Thursday and Friday, before heading to Fiji in mid October for the Legends Fiji Golf Classic.
