Steve Conran has fired a final round of 66 to take out the Vuksich & Borich Fiji Legends Classic at Natadola Bay and Denarau Golf & Racquet Club on the Ladbrokes Legends Tour.
An almost flawless round consisting of seven birdies an only one bogey on the par-4 8th hole wrapped up a great week for Conran, finishing 14-under par with rounds of 71, 65 and 66.
Playing alongside Conran in the final group, Richard Backwell of Queensland held onto second place with rounds of 69, 68 and 71 for an 8-under total.
Just one shot behind, New Zealander Dean Sipson’s last round of 66 saw him leap up the leaderboard to tie for third place with Ben Jackson on 7-under.
Tournament favourite and Ladbrokes Legends Tour Order of Merit leader Michael Harwood held fifth spot alongside defending champion Brad Burns who mounted a solid defence with rounds of 75, 67 and 69 for 5-under.
Wet, windy weather following a rain delay in round one at Natadola hampered Burns’ three-peat attempt while improved weather for the following rounds saw Burns fight back to finish among the front-runners.
The 45 senior professionals, joined by some 50 amateurs from Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific enjoyed a great three days playing Natadola and Denarau which were both presented immaculately for the tournament.
The Ladbrokes Legends Tour now moves to Royal Samoa Country Club for the 2019 Samoa Senior Open, to be played from 26-28 June, 2019.
