More big names to play at Creswick

MORE big-name golfers have confirmed their place for next year’s Victorian PGA Championship in Creswick.

Former US Nationwide Tour player Kim Felton and European Senior Tour player Terry Price are the latest to set their sights on Forest Resort for the $130,000 tournament, held between January 17-20.

The pair joins the likes of defending champion Gareth Paddison, Paul Gow, James McLean and 2007 champion Ashley Hall in next year’s field.

Felton, whose credentials include wins on the Nationwide and One Asia tours, has had a busy summer season with a win at the Jeep Pro-Am series final and a tie for fourth in the recent Australian Open.

Price will return from an outstanding year which was highlighted by a win at the Pon Senior Open in Germany, leapfrogging him 60 places on the European Senior Tour Order of Merit to finish the season in 18th position.

The Queenslander’s career, which began in 1979, has also featured eight wins on the PGA Tour of Australasia, including Queensland PGA, Queensland Open, New South Wales Open and New Zealand Open titles.

Pro-am spots are still available for the Tuesday of the tournament for any player who has a handicap. $85 for the day includes a golf cart. For more information visit www.forestresort.com.au or email benr@forestresort.com.au.
