The Australian posted a closing one under par round of 71 to join Lawrie on 10 under par with the duo both making par on the first trip down the par four 17th hole and the par four 18th hole at La Moye Golf Club. On the third play-off hole, Lawrie saw his approach shot find the rough at the back of the green giving Green the opportunity to make par, which he duly converted.
Winning the Jersey Legends means that Green has won in every decade since turning professional in 1992, firstly at the Dubai Desert Classic in 1997, the BA-CA Golf Open presented by Telekom Austria in 2007 and the Portugal Masters in 2010.
“I feel fantastic,” he said. “Obviously to play that well under that pressure in the closing holes was very pleasing, I haven’t been there for a while I’ve put myself in some situations over the years which has been very testing but it’s just nice to come out on top.
“I was about as nervous as it gets, to play against Paul in the heat of the battle it’s a tough exercise which meant I had to play my best golf to win and he has had a great career and won many tournaments and won The Open and I knew it wasn’t going to be easy so yeah I felt really nervous but I’m really pleased that I managed to pull the shots off that I needed to.”
The 50-year-old has made his Legends Tour regular season debut one to remember and expressed how impressive the La Moye links course truly is.
“I was a bit lost with my game a little bit earlier on in the week but I was hitting it well leading up to the event and through the PGA (KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship) I was hitting it well.
“I missed a couple of shots there and then your confidence level is not where it needs to be but when I came here everything kind of fitted into place and the golf course is beautiful, I fell in love with it straight away and I felt like I could really play the golf course, the sequence of holes is beautiful, the par fives come at the right time and I was able to play really nicely.”
Former European Ryder Cup player Phillip Price finished in joint third place on nine under par along with the 2022 Riegler & Partner Legends winner Euan McIntosh. Adilson Da Silva took up fifth position on seven under par with 2005 U.S. Open Winner Michael Campbell taking up sixth position.
The next event on the Legends Tour international schedule is the Farmfoods European Legends Links Championship hosted by Ian Woosnam, which takes place at Trevose Golf & Country Club, from June 17 – 19, 2022.
