One of Australia’s most recognised golfers Peter Senior will join the field at the upcoming Coca-Cola Queensland PGA Championship presented by Toowoomba Regional Council at City Golf Club.
Senior, who has recently recorded a string of strong results in the Ladbrokes Legends Tour, will be joined by defending champion Daniel Fox with the pair set to tee off against a host of in-form Australian golfers.
2018 ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia Player of the Year Matt Millar, PGA TOUR winners Peter Lonard and Mark Hensby also join the entry list, ensuring the competition at the 2018 Queensland PGA Championship will be hotter than ever.
The tournament also welcomes back previous winners including Daniel Pearce (2017), Gareth Paddison (2011), Darren Beck (2008), Andrew Bonhomme (2007), Kurt Barnes (2004), Andre Stolz (2002), Nathan Green (2000), and two-time winner Terry Price (1988, 1990) who will tee it up in 2019.
“It’s great to be welcoming eight of our past champions back to the Coca-Cola Queensland PGA Championship presented by Toowoomba Regional Council, especially on the event’s 10th staging at City Golf Club,” said General Manager – Tournaments for the PGA of Australia, Simon Butterly.
“The field is looking absolutely fantastic this year and the course is in great condition.”
Former NRL Player and Fox Sports presenter Ben Ikin also bolsters the 2019 list after reducing his handicap to 1.7 and receiving an invitation to play earlier this year.
“Ben Ikin was very driven to compete in an ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia tournament so it was excellent to see him achieve his goals through working with Matt Guyatt, a PGA Pro,” added Butterly.
“His addition to the field certainly adds a different element of interest to the tournament which will be shown live on PGA TV on the weekend.”
To mark the 10th year anniversary of the event being staged at City Golf Club, a Champions Dinner will be hosted on Wednesday 20 February at City Golf Club.
Past winners playing in this year’s tournament will be joined by former QLD PGA Champions including Peter Barry, Randall Vines, Robbie Gibson and Alan Cooper as well as video messages from Ian Baker-Finch, Cameron Percy, Ossie Moore, Lucas Parsons and many more.
