“Conditions were perfect this morning, just perfect, said Power.

“Greens were good, course was unbelievable. I didn’t play anywhere near as good as yesterday but still managed to get it around. Because I don’t play much at all you still get a bit nervous but I’ve been playing golf for so long you kind of get used to it.”

A winner of the Australian Legends Tour Championship in 2015, Power is also a past winner of the 2017 BMD/Barton Queensland Senior PGA Championship and the Queensland PGA Championship in 1995. Along with Bryan Smith and Ossie Moore, he is the only player to have won the Queensland PGA double.

Peter Senior and Andre Stolz captured a top-10 result at 5-under-par.

The next event on the SParms Legends Tour is the Sealink Strabroke Ferries Legends Pro-Am at North Stradbroke Island Golf Course starting on Sunday.
