In just his third Professional start Sam Done fired a spectacular 8 under par 64 second round, to come from 5 shots back, after his opening 2 under par 70, to win at, Glen Gorse, by 2 shots from a group of five players on 8 under par.
After the excitement of the U S Open at winged foot, it was tee off time at Glen Gorse and the first round produced some red-hot scoring on a beautiful golfing day, that was spoilt early on with a short fog delay.
Dan Smith produced a sparkling round of 7 under par made up of 5 Birdies and an Eagle on the, “un-lucky for some”, par 5 Thirteenth.
This gave Smith a single shot advantage, going into the final day, over Steve Surry and the talented amateur, Matty Lamb, with a whole host of players hot on their heels.
On the final day, Done was the model of consistency, with a faultless scorecard containing 6 Birdies. with an Eagle and the win seemed pre-ordained. when his 40-foot Birdie putt on the eighteenth dropped.
Done posted his 10 under par total with six groups still left on the course, so he had to endure a nervous wait until the last putt dropped and he knew he was the winner of his first professional title.
Preceding the tournament, we had a very successful Pro-Am with winner, Will Percival and his team picking up the spoils with 94 Points.
Course Director, Stephen Benton and his team led by Head Greenkeeper, Chris Shuttlewood, Deputy James Whitehead and the rest of the crew presented the Glen Gorse in pristine condition for both the Pro-Am and the main tournament.
The clubhouse staff looked after everyone with the highest level of hospitality whilst keeping all the players and the Jamega Team safe.
It is with great sadness, that unfortunately, due to the ever-worsening Corvid 19 Pandemic situation, we have decided to cancel the remaining four tournaments of the 2020 season, for the safety and wellbeing of our professional and amateur players.
