But it was Englishman Peter Baker who comfortably won the event by six-shots.

He’ll have the chance to defend his title between the 1st and 4th of August next year on the same course, just a week after the Senior Open in Carnoustie.

Eric Trump, executive vice president of the Trump Organization and Donald’s son, attended this years event. Upon its renewal for three more years, he said: ‘”The Legends tournament at our sensational links along the North Sea coastline was a phenomenal success this year, and we look forward to hosting this great tournament for many more years to come.”

Ryan Howsam, co-owner of the Legends Tour and chairman of Staysure Group, said: “To be returning to Trump International Golf Links for a second year, and with a long-term commitment to play our flagship event there for another three years, this is huge news for the Legends Tour as we continue to grow our brand.

“The event in Aberdeenshire this year will live long in the memory.

“Not only did the venue live up to the expectations of providing such world-class facilities to host the tournament, but our ‘playing experiences’ proved an unprecedented success for amateurs wanting to live their dream of playing with celebrities and professionals.”
