Darren Rix has won the OPD Meadowbrook Legends Pro-Am in perfect Queensland conditions with a round of 3-under 63.
Teeing off in the afternoon field, Rix recorded five birdies and two bogeys on his way to a one-shot win.
“I played solid, hitting most fairways and taking advantage of the par-5s,” Rix said.
“A couple of good up and downs made the difference in the end.”
Fearns was among 20 players within the 45-man line-up to tee off in the morning field, where the New South Welshman carded 2-under 70.
Like Rix, Fearns’ round consisted of five birdies, with one additional bogey putting him one shot behind the leader.
Gregory Carroll and Allan Cooper tied for third place with rounds of 1-under 71.
All players praised the quality of the greens and the organization of the Ladbrokes Legends Tour event.
“Tom Linskey and his team are doing a great job of improving the Meadowbrook facility,” added Rix.
The Ladbrokes Legends Tour now moves to Mt Warren Park Golf Course for The Keybiz Group Mt Warren Park Legends Pro-Am.
