Fowler, Price lead Furphy Victorian Senior Open


Peter Fowler has continued his Staysure Tour-winning form at the Victorian Senior Open to lead by two shots alongside Terry Price with one round remaining.

The pair fired rounds of 7-under 65 in sweltering afternoon conditions at Yarrawonga Mulwala Resort amongst a field of 73 Professionals at the Ladbrokes Legends Tour event.

Fowler set the course alight with five birdies and an eagle on his back nine after starting his round with a double-bogey while a blemish-free 65 from Price saw the Queenslander equal the leading score.

With a win under his belt already on the Ladbrokes Pro-Am Series from Blitz at Links Hope Island, Peter Senior remains within reach of the lead at 5-under 67, a score that was replicated by New South Welshman Grant Kenny.

David Van Raalte was the clubhouse leader after taking advantage of cooler morning conditions to post a scorecard of 4-under 68 that sees him tied for fifth place.

Play continues on Friday from 7am in conditions that are expected to top 41 degrees.
