Speyer is a Two Timer
Tom Speyer racked up his second professional win on The Jamega Pro Golf Tour this year at Windmill Hill Golf Club near Milton Keynes, to join a select group who have had 2 wins or more in a single season.
Gareth Blease carried his new found form into this tournament and shared the lead with Jamie Moul on 4 under par and the pair headed the eventual winner, Speyer, by one shot.
Their nearest challengers sat a further 3 shots behind and so had some ground to make up but with the likes of Jamie Abbott, Dale Whitnell and Zane Scotland in the chasing pack there was still a lot to play for on the second day.
With strong, blustery winds making things difficult, the second day proved to be a little lacklustre with no one really making a dash for the winning post.
Never the less there were some notable improvements by some players like Liam Robinson who shot 3 under par to improve on his first round by some 9 shots.
Young Jake Ayers shot a 4 under par 69 to improve on his first round by 7 shots and finish in the prize money.
Anyway, back to the action, as the final 2 groups battled it out over the last few holes it was a birdie on the seventeenth that enabled Jay Taylor, in the penultimate group, to break away from Speyer and Moul, in the final group, and post a tournament score of 4 under par.
The big hitting, first round joint leader, Gareth Blease, brilliantly Eagled the last but it was not enough to join Taylor and he falls one shot shy.
Jamie Moul never really recovered from a disastrous triple bogey 7 on the par 4 eighth hole and he eventually also failed to match Taylors score by a single shot.
Tom Speyer was moving along quietly on 2 under par but with 3 holes to play he let loose with birdies on the sixteenth and most importantly the eighteenth that enabled him to join Taylor on 4 under par and into a play-off.
So to the sudden death play-off over holes One and Eighteen and it was a clinical birdie at the par 5 first which swiftly ended the proceedings and gave Speyer victory over the disappointed Taylor.
Congratulations to Tyler Hogarty on his victory in the 4th Mini Order of Merit and winning Free starts on the Algarve Pro Golf Tour 2016/2017 season, which is worth in excess of £4,000.
The 5th and final Mini Order of Merit starts next week at Aldwickbury Park, so could it be you who wins the last prize of a Free season on The Algarve Pro Golf Tour in 2016/2017.
