Wayne Grady wins 2009 SA Seniors Championship

WAYNE GRADY has won the inaugural South Australian PGA Seniors Championship at Adelaide Shores Golf Club on the first play off hole after a final round 68.

Grady beat South Australian Garry Merrick in the play off after both golfers finished four below par after 36 holes.

Third was Victoria’s David Good on three under. Four golfers tied for fourth at two under, Hugh Dolan (QLD), Michael Harwood (VIC), Roger Stephens (SA) and John Clifford (NSW).

Rodger Davis finished a stroke away at one under.

Past USPGA Champion Grady entered the Legends Tour event as a hot favourite and was four behind Merrick after the opening round.

Merrick scored a 68 on the first day and Grady turned the tables in the final round to force a playoff. Proceeds from the $20,000 event will go to the Victorian Bushfire Fund.
