Burns closes OOM gap with win at Hurstville

Brad Burns has ended the Sydney swing of the Ladbrokes Legends Tour schedule on a high with a win at the Wayne Riley Georges River Council Legends Pro-Am.

At the tail end of a busy month the ever-consistent Burns added yet another win to his 2019 tally by posting a 5-under 65 total in difficult, windy conditions.

Burns thanked the Hurstville Golf Club staff and volunteers for facilitating a great event.

“The hospitality shown to us every year here is amazing, it’s a real community event,” Burns said.

“It’s great to get another win on the board and continue what has been a good year for me.”

With the two-stroke victory Burns has closed the gap between himself and Ladbrokes Legends Tour Order of Merit leader Michael Harwood.

Darren Rix and Ben Jackson claimed second place with rounds of 3-under 67.

A further four players including Peter Woodward, Shaquill Mongol, Douglas Maiden and Anthony Summers finished in red numbers at 1-under the card.
