Peter Fowler steals the show with another win at Killara


A bogey-free round of 5-under 67 has seen Peter Fowler take out the 2019 David Mercer Senior Classic at Killara Golf Club.

Fresh from winning The Australian Golf Club Legends Pro-Am earlier this week, Fowler sprinted out of the blocks at the Ladbrokes Legends Tour tournament to take a one-stroke victory over Michael Harwood.

Fowler headlined a stellar field including the likes of Peter Senior, Peter O’Malley, Terry Price and Rodger Davis, all vying for the title named after one of the most iconic and distinguished Club Professionals in David Mercer.

“Dave is an absolute legend and I’m honoured to win the event named in his honour,” Fowler said.

“I have been working with Gary Barter from The Australian over the past few weeks and that has really made a difference to my result and I was happy to get the win today.”

The David Mercer Classic was the first public showing of the newly designed Killara layout and the PGA Professionals were singing the praises of designer Harley Kruse.

“They have certainly made the course much more accessible and, even better, the course is very pleasing to the eye,” he said.

Michael Harwood claimed second place with a round of 4-under 68.

Other notable scores came from John Wade and Steve Conran who finished the tournament at 2-under par.

The Ladbrokes Legends Tour kicks off again next Monday 18 November at Castle Hill Country Club for the NSW PGA Seniors Championship.
