Kenny wins rain-shortened Beerwah Legends Pro-Am

Four birdies in the space of six holes has seen Grant Kenny secure his first SParms PGA Legends Tour win since 2019 at the Elgin Valley Beerwah Legends Pro-Am at Beerwah Golf Course.

The $30,000 two-day event had to be shortened to a one-day sprint due to rain with Kenny’s four-under 68 one clear of Peter Senior (69) with Order of Merit leader Andre Stolz sharing third with Richard Backwell and John Wade at two-under 70.

Despite the amount of rain that resulted in waterlogged fairways, the greens at the course built by Ian Baker-Finch’s father provided players with plenty of opportunities for scoring.

“The greens were amazing,” said Kenny, whose last win came at the Lismore Legends Pro-Am in December 2019.

“Even with the rain tumbling down the surfaces remained perfect.”

The next event on the SParms PGA Legends Tour is the North Shore Realty Mt Coolum Legends Pro-Am at Mount Coolum Golf Club on Monday.
