Grady favourite for SA PGA Seniors Championship

WAYNE GRADY will be a hot favourite when he heads a star studded line up competing in the inaugural South Australian PGA Seniors Championship at Adelaide Shores next week.

Grady is  in top form after winning in Japan last week but will face stiff opposition in the Australian PGA Legends Tour event from the likes of Rodger Davis, Bob Shearer, Brian Jones, Mike Ferguson and Randall Vines.
Tournament promoter, PGA Professional Peter Ormsby, secured the participation of Grady, a past US PGA Champion, for the $20,000 event. All proceeds will go to the Victorian Bushfire Fund.
The Adelaide Shores revamped Golf Complex should be in perfect condition for this 36 hole championship, to be held next Thursday and Friday, 30th April – 1st May.

The PGA Championship will be the only PGA title event played in South Australia this year, and will be preceded this weekend with the Onesteel Whyalla PGA Legends $20,000 Pro am.
Jacob’s Creek, long time golf supporter in Australia, will host their $10,000 Legends Pro am at Tanunda on Tuesday 28th and the final event is the Scarpantoni PGA Legends Pro Am at the magnificently groomed Victor Harbor Golf Course on Sunday 3rd May.
SA’s golfing supporters are more than welcome at all courses to watch the competitors on the PGA Legends Tour compete for the win.
With over 40 Professionals and many of SA’s leading businesses supporting these events, Ormsby is expecting to raise in excess of $35,000 for the Bendigo Bank Community Enterprise Fund, which in turn distributes the funds to Charities. For further information contact the hosting Golf Clubs.
