• Pearce rolls back the clock winning Moss Vale Women's Classic

Queensland's Karen Pearce rolled back the clock to take the Moss Vale Women's Classic after shooting an impressive 3 under-par round of 70 at Moss Vale Golf Club.

The 54-year-old, who retired from full-time professional golf 18 years ago played in the more favourable morning conditions and carded 6 birdies and 3 bogeys in her round to claim a 4-shot victory.

Pearce is clearly a fan of the Moss Vale Golf Club having also won the 2005 Moss Vale Classic.
Her win may seem to have come out of the blue to some, however, it will have come as no shock to the golfing boffins with the Queenslander having played a number of years on both the US LPGA Tour and the Ladies European Tour and being a 5-time winner on the WPGA Tour.

Pearce was delighted to come away with the win after driving down to the Southern Highlands from her home in Toowoomba.
"This course really suits my game and I think having played here so many times gave me a big advantage today. The course was in superb condition and I am so happy to come away with the win"

Pearce is not only an incredibly talented golfer but is a gifted all-round athlete, when she is not winning WPGA Tour Pro-ams she doubles as one of Australia's finest senior women's tennis players. 

Alone in second place after shooting a 1-over par round of 74 was dual Ladies European Tour winner Nikki Garrett, who is also a part-time golfer these days and was playing in her first professional event in over a year.
The 39-year-old retired from full-time tournament play in 2017 and is now mum to son Nixon and daughter Stella.

The WPGA Tour now heads west to Wagga Wagga Country Club, for the Navigate Advisors Wagga Wagga Womens Pro-am to be held over 36 holes on the 9th and 10th March where $50,000 prizemoney will be on offer for the women professionals.
