Tasmanian Senior Open Champion Michael Harwood

Harwood goes back to back in Devonport

Victorian Michael Harwood has claimed a record breaking fifth Tasmanian Senior Open title, securing a one shot victory at Devonport Golf Club. Defending his 2015 title, Harwood backed up his opening round of 3-under 67 with seven birdies and a 5-under 65.Going into the final round Harwood trailed overnight leader Mark Tickle by two shots before carding the lowest round of the tournament for an 8-under total. After his opening round of 5-under 65, Tickle pushed Harwood to the last hole but fell one shot shy as he posted a 2-under 68 to finish outright second. “I love coming back here, I love the course and I'm looking forward to next year already," Harwood said during the presentations.

 

Club Professional Darren Spencer shot into contention on the final day after posting a 5-under 65, backing up his opening round of 69 to finish alone in third place. With over 200mm of rain falling on the club over the days leading up to the event, the Devonport layout was in exceptional condition. The course staff worked late into the evening to bring the course up to championship standard.

 

Windy conditions in the first round made scoring conditions tricky, while Monday's second round was picture perfect, a warm sunny day with light winds. The tournament suffered a blow before the first round with household name Rodger Davis unable to tee it up due to a back injury. Tasmanian amateur Robert Dyson fired rounds of 74 and 76 and a 10-over total to claim this year's low amateur medal. Harwood’s win draws him to within $200 of Peter Fowler and the early leader in the race for the E-Z-GO PGA Legends Tour Order of Merit title
