PETER Fowler has fired a final round 66 to take out the 2011 Bendigo Bank SA Senior PGA Championship by five strokes at Adelaide Shores.
Fowler shared the overnight lead with local hope Gary Merrick after a first round 67 and finished the tournament at 11-under.
That was five in front of runners-up Michael Harwood from Victoria and Canada’s Ken Tarling.
“The course was set up beautifully for this event”, Fowler said, “I played very consistently over the last two days and made birdies when I needed to. This is my second victory on the Australian Legends tour this year and it is great to share the course with the likes of Roger Davis and Mike Harwood”.
Fowler will play the $3 million Volvo China Open this week before heading back to Europe for the European Seniors Tour where he hopes to continue his recent form.
The South Australian swing of the E-Z-GO Legends Tour encompassed a bonus pot sponsored by the Bendigo Bank. The best performed player over the seven selected rounds was Victorian Mike Harwood who finished seven under par.
