Kwii golfer Craig OwenKIWI golfer Craig Owen has held off a fast finishing Lyndsay Stephen to win the 2010 Peninsula Springs Victorian Seniors Open by three shots today at The Dunes Golf Links.

Owen’s final round two under par 70 was enough to claim the title despite Stephen’s final round five under 67.

Joining Stephen in second place was fellow European Tour player Noel Ratcliffe and Queenslander Ossie Moore.

 “I am so excited to be able to win here today. I have had some doubts about being able to finish off a tournament; I have put those to rest today,” Owen said.

The New Zealander was the only player to go under par during each of the three rounds of the tournament.

Despite inclement weather closing in on the final groups, Owen was able to master the difficult conditions and challenging Dunes layout to post four final round birdies.

Lyndsay Stephen, who divides his time between the European tour and events at home, had the round of the day with five birdies and two eagles.

The PGA E-Z-Go Legends tour now moves to Sorrento Golf Club on Sunday followed by the McMullin Legends Pro Am at Growling Frog in Melbourne’s north on Monday.
