It was a tough day at the office today for the 47 Legends ( over 50 yrs old) professionals  playing in the Media Works Gulf Harbour Pro am. Strong winds, difficult pin positions and wiry rough made for very difficult scoring conditions. Three Australians, Richard Backwell (pictured), John Onions and Glenn Joyner are tied for the first round lead with two over par  74's, one better than NZ player Martin Pettigrew who is the current Australian Senior Champion and recent winner of the Victorian Senior Championship. Also on 75 is the current NZPGA Senior Champion Tim Elliott. The weather forecast for the final round tomorrow is for worsening conditions with heavy rain being added to the mix.
