Towndrow Secures Maiden Victory
Sean Towndrow (Golfin4Life) held off the opposition with a patient and mature performance while most of the field found the going heavy at Mill Ride.
Towndrow proved to be the stayer and at close of play on the first day he had a 5 under par 67 under his belt to lead by three.
Dan Garner (Romford Golf Club) was his nearest challenger on 2 under the card, and a length back on one under par sat the amateur Jack Floydd (Haywards Heath GC) and Jamie Moul (Stoke by Nayland).
It promised to be a very interesting second day for Towndrow, in the way of him keeping the chasing pack at bay and holding his nerve.
The second day was a little lack lustre in terms of an exciting finish, with only four players finishing level par or better.
One of those was overnight leader Towndrow, who with 3 birdies, 3 bogeys and 12 pars did more than enough to secure his first professional win by 4 shots from Freddie Price.
A solid performance from the “Single Figure Golfer” entry, amateur Jack Floydd who finished level par for the tournament tied with Ben Follett-Smith in third place.
Congratulations to Will Brown who has just pipped David Dixon to top the second Order of Merit to secure him a free season on the2018/2019 Portugal Pro Golf Tour worth in excess of £4,500.
