DAVID MERRIMAN has won the 2013 Queensland Senior PGA Championship by a stroke at the Redland Golf Club.

Merriman went into the second and final round as joint overnight leader and fired a 2-under 70 to take the championship at 6-under.

“I was definitely pleased to be starting today in a strong position and thought if I was able to keep the same form going into today I could definitely have a chance of winning.” said Merriman.

“It was never a guarantee with so many talented players in the field though. It was so great to see many of our top players compete in this event. To be able to be in this position again is a great feeling”

In second place was Lucien Tinkler (69) on 5-under with recent US Senior Open participant Kym Olsen (70) a stroke further back alone in third place.

The E-Z-GO PGA Legends Tour is continuing its Queensland swing for the next few weeks.
