In-form Fowler takes out Cranbrook Residences NSW PGA Seniors Championship


An in-form Peter Fowler has continued a stunning run of victories by taking out the Cranbrook Residences NSW PGA Senior Championship.

Fowler, who earlier in the week won The Australian Legends Pro-Am and the David Mercer Classic at Killara Golf Club, claimed his third title for the week with a one-shot victory at Castle Hill Country Club.

“I grew up in the area and used to come out to Castle Hill every couple of months to have a hit as a youngster,” Fowler said.

“I like what they have done with the course and I look to forward to seeing it once it’s settled down.

“I can’t thank the club enough for their work in delivering such a great event.”

Fowler’s form was evident in the opening round the Ladbrokes Legends Tour event where a score of 5-under 67 gave the New South Welshman a two-shot lead heading into the final day.

His second round started in much the same fashion with an opening-nine of 5-under 31.

To all watching on it seemed as if Fowler would rocket ahead of the field but a lost ball on the 10th and an ensuing triple bogey, followed by another bogey, tightened the standings at the top of the leaderboard.

All hope was not lost for the Aussie golfing legend, however, who used his experience to bounce back with birdies at the 12th and 13th holes.

A final total of 7-under 137 took Fowler to a one shot victory over Brad Burns.

The consistent Queenslander claimed second place with rounds of 69, 69 for a 6-under 138 total.

Burns’ finish has kept him well in the hunt for the Ladbrokes Legends Tour Order of Merit.

Fellow Queenslander Craig Warren has finished in third place with a 5-under total of 139.

Rounding out the top five was David McKenzie who has recently returned from the Champions Tour and Nick Robb on 3-under 141.

The Ladbrokes Legends Tour will move to Cronulla for the Sylvania BMW Legends Pro Am.
