The wind made life difficult for players in the 2018 Wayne Riley Georges River Council Legends Pro-Am.
Martin Peterson handled the conditions best with a 3 under 67, the highlight his eagle two on the 5th hole where he holed out with a wedge.
“I first started playing my golf here. My parents said where would I like to play when I was 10 years old and I chose Hurstville," said Peterson.
“Last year I sat around thinking I’d done enough to win and then Mike (Harwood) came in with 6-under 64 in just as tough a conditions as today. So I was a little nervous but it’s great to get a win here."
David Hill was the only other player to break par on the day and his 1-under 69 saw him finish runner up.
On even par was David Diaz and Chris Hollingsworth. Rounding out the top five was Tim Elliott with 1-over 71.
The Ladbrokes Legends Tour will move to Maitland next Monday for the East’s Legends Pro-Am for Maitland Palliative Care.
