Tinkler shot 66 on Monday and 71 on Tuesday to finish three shots clear of Queenslanders Brad Burns and Nigel Lane both on 140. Tinkler’s round included eight birdies and two bogeys. The picturesque layout in the small seaside town of Bermagui is fast becoming a favourite stop on the Ladbrokes Legends Tour, having expanded to a two-day event due to the positive feedback received in previous years. In his touring career Lucien has played in 2 British Opens and this was his 3rd outing at Bermagui to secure the win.
