Brad Burns has showed exceptional form at the Sealink Stradbroke Ferries Legends Pro-Am to win by three shots with a round of 7-under 64.

Brad BurnsStarting the day with a bogey on the par-4 4th hole, Burns went on to birdie six of the next eight holes to set a new course record at North Stradbroke Island Golf Course.

“It is great to come back to North Stradbroke Island given me and my family have been here several times for holidays,” said Burns.

“The course has a good mixture of tough holes and birdie opportunities and given its unique setting and views from the clubhouse, it will certainly be a memorable win.

“Many of the pros have never played here before, some of them have never been on the island at all so hopefully this tournament can help put North Stradbroke Island Golf Club on the map.”

Richard Backwell and Glenn Joyner once again featured at the top of the leaderboard, recording rounds of 4-under 67 to tie for second place.

America’s Shaquill Mongol took outright fourth place at 3-under, ahead of Allan Cooper and John Onions tied for fifth place at 2-under the card.

With one hole chosen from each event and almost being at the halfway stage of the Tony Hollands Funerals Challenge, Glenn Joyner is at 4-under par holding a two-shot lead from several others who are at 2-under par through eight holes.

The Ladbroke Legends Tour now heads to the Meadowbrook Legends Pro-Am tomorrow for their inaugural Legends Pro-Am.
