Steve Conran and Richard Backwell have won the Pacific Harbour Legends Pro-Am on the Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series, firing rounds of 1-under 71 to sit two shots clear of the field.

Richard BackwellBreezy conditions made scoring tricky at the Pacific Harbour Golf Course where the winners were the only two players of the 40-man field to record rounds under par.

The victory marks back-to-back wins for Conran whose round featured four birdies and three bogeys.

After a shaky start to the tournament at 2-over through six holes, four birdies and a single bogey on the way to the clubhouse improved Backwell’s round to see him claim the joint win.

Tod Power and Bryan Wearne finished tied for third place at 1-over the card, just one shot ahead of Martin Peterson in fifth place at 2-over.

Despite the challenging weather both Backwell and Conran praised the facility and the condition of the course.

“The tournament was fantastic,” said Conran. “It’s a tricky layout so you really have to be strategic with your tee shots and think about how you’re going to play it.”

The Ladbrokes Legends Tour moves to Wynnum Golf Club on 5 August for the two-day Bartons / BMD QLD Senior PGA Championship.
