Australian Golfing Greats To Visit City

Rodger Davis with Nudgee GM Max Mason

Some of Australia’s greatest professional golfers will converge on Toowoomba for this year’s staging of the $10,000 R & O Communications Senior Pro Am at the City Golf Club on Monday 2nd August.

Former Australian Open champion & three times Queensland Senior Open champion Rodger Davis will spearhead the field which also includes the likes of prolific Japan Tour champion Brian Jones, Australian Senior Open champion John Clifford plus the popular trio of Mike Ferguson, Jeff Woodland and Ossie Moore. Throw in a couple of former Queensland PGA champions and former City professionals Bryan Smith and John Victorsen and you have a top quality field of golfing greats.

A field of 50 professionals will join local amateurs to contest the event which is a part of the Darling Downs swing of the Queensland Legends PGA tour. The City Senior Pro Am kick-starts a number of senior pro am events locally with Dalby, Chinchilla and Jandowae to follow. The real interest in this year’s tournament is the ‘red hot’ form of Rodger Davis who was a prolific winner of major events in his glory days in Australia and Europe.

Davis played one of the greatest shots of his career last week to birdie the final hole of the Queensland Senior Open championship and claim an unparalleled third title at Nudgee Golf Club. With his drive bunkered on the left hand side of the fairway and his approach to the elevated 18th green obscured by an overhanging Moreton Bay Fig, Davis crisply struck his second to within six inches of the hole to claim victory.

Amateur golfers have been invited to join the field of veteran professional greats with a 12 midday shotgun start on Monday 2nd August. A presentation dinner and interviews with the golfing greats will follow that evening in the City Golf Club function rooms.
