2012 PGA Legends Tour School graduates

THE 2012 PGA Legends Tour has four new members following the recent Legends Tour School at the Camden Lakeside Country Club.

In blustery conditions Victorian Kym Olsen was the standout with three consecutive sub-par rounds of 71 for a 3-under par total to finish fourteen shots clear of the field.

The others to gain cards were Queensland’s Gary Schofield (227) and John Kirchner (228), and New Zealand’s Davitt Lavery (231).

Lavery had to survive a sudden death play-off against Victoria’s Mick Asami for his place on the tour.

The newcomers are already making their mark on the tour with the three Australians competing in the just completed NSW Legends Championship at the Oatlands Golf Club.

Schofield finished in 13th spot while Olsen was T27 and Kirchner T48.
