"BenBen Jackson rounded out the year with a win following his 4-under-66 playing in the morning field.

Fortunately for Jackson, it couldn’t be matched by the afternoon field, with Michael Long, Daryl Purchase and Perry Parker all finishing one shot behind.

“It’s been a big year of travel, and I couldn’t have scripted it better to win the final event of the year,” said Jackson.

“I didn’t know what to expect at the start of the day given the forecast, but thankfully it held off long enough to get complete.

“It’s great to see how the community embraces this event. The club which is primarily volunteer-based is certainly a jewel of the Sunshine Coast and one I recommend avid golfers come and play if they have a chance.”

After more than 70 events played across Australia and the Pacific, Brad Burns has claimed the Ladbrokes Legends Tour Order of Merit ahead of Richard Backwell.
