Conor Whitelock and the leader board.

Lucien Tinkler won the Legends Tour Championship Professional event at the Byron Bay Golf Club earlier this month, while local 16-year -old Conor Whitelock won the amateur section.

‘Another successful event was staged here at the Club. Our course was presented to the players in perfect condition and the scoring was good considering the tough conditions that were experienced,’ Byron Bay Golf Club professional Greg Stewart said.

‘Mother Nature provided electrical storms on the Saturday afternoon giving us a suspension of play for the day,’ he said.

The professionals recommenced their rounds at 6.30am on the Sunday morning. The final round then started at 11am with a shotgun start.

‘The great final day story was the leading five professionals battling for the professional victory.

‘Then we had 16-year-old Conor Whitelock leading 18-year-old Jay MacKenzie by one shot in the amateur section,’ Greg said.

‘Conor played outstanding golf to finish the 54-hole event with a three under par total of 213 to claim the amateur section.

Lucien Tinkler won the Legends Tour Championship Professional event with a five under total of 21.

‘Lucien has supported this event over the past five years and played great golf to claim the victory,’ Greg said.

‘The Byron Bay Golf Club would like thank the ongoing support of all our sponsors and the fantastic volunteer contributions that help to make this tournament what it is,’ he said.
