Steve Conran has taken a two-shot win at the second staging of the Elgin Valley Beerwah Legends Pro-Am with a superb round of 5-under 67.
A strong field of 67 Professionals gathered for the Ladbrokes Legends Tour event including order of merit leader Mike Harwood, Richard Backwell and Peter Senior.
Conran made the most of clear Queensland conditions to make a total of six birdies on holes 4, 5, 11, 12, 14 and 15 at Beerwah Golf Course with his only bogey coming on par-4 10th hole.
“We have some really good golf courses to play in the region over the next three days and no doubt that’s the reason for the really good fields including today,” said Conran after his round.
“The greens were exceptionally quick out there and with the course set up really tight off the tee, it felt a lot like many of the courses in Japan or where I’m from in country NSW.”
David Hando took out second place with a round of 3-under 69 to finish ahead of Peter Senior in third place at 2-under the card and David Merriman in fourth at 1-under.
Making even on the par-72 course were Michael Harwood, Darren Rix and Mark Tickle who tied for fifth place.
The Ladbrokes Legends Tour heads to the Morton Bay Region on Thursday for the Pacific Harbour Legends Pro-Am before the Bribie Island Legends Pro-Am on Friday 2 August.
