Ken Tarling Wins Australian Senior Tour Event


(Dunedin, NZ - February 28, 2011) - Canadian Ken Tarling has taken out the City of Dunedin Legends Pro-Am in a thrilling final day shootout. Tarling fired rounds of 68, 71 and 69 for five-under total, just one stroke ahead of Paul Dalgleish from Queensland. After Tarling made bogey on the final hole, Dalgleish had his chance to force a play-off with a sliding three metre putt, however the putt shaved the hole settling for second.

New Zealand’s Garth Domigan was well in contention until he made a double bogey on the short 17th hole, but with a monster putt on the last snatched third placing from fellow countryman Peter Fowler who shot the lowest tournament round four-under, 67 that included three birdies on his last four holes.
Victorian David Hill was in outright fifth position, a shot back of Fowler, while David Merriman was a further stroke away in sixth position.

Sir Bob Charles once again scored under his age with a par round of 71 that put him in 10th equal position.
