The Mollymook Golf Club was again the host of the coveted NSW PGA Senior Championship with 67 Professionals including the 2017 Champion Steve Conran vying for this year's title.
The well renowned ‘Hilltop’ certainly is a fitting venue for the event boasting a layout that is a great test of golf along with its visual presence all of which produce that ‘big tournament’ atmosphere.
The 36 hole tournament was interrupted by an electrical storm in round two with play suspended for 90 minutes.
It was hopeful that players would be able to continue after the delay, however the lightning activity continued and it was later deemed unsafe to continue and the 2nd round was ultimately abandoned, handing the title to the first round leader David Hando.
Hando had five birdies and two bogies in his first round to return a 3-under par score of 69. Hando credited part of his winning form to a renewed practice energy after a recent winning speech from fellow professional Lucien Tinkler.
Mike Zilko finished runner-up one stroke behind after firing a fine round of 70, with a quartet of players Bryan Wearne, Peter Senior, Michael Holden and Brad Burns a further shot back tied for 3rd place with 71.
Neil Wall won the Super Seniors trophy for the 65 year and over section with a fine score of 72. Paul Dalgleish recorded a hole in one on the par 3 5th hole during the second round prior to the round being abandoned.
