Dan Brooks put a stopover between Challenge Tour dates to good use to win the Jamega Tour event held over The International Course at The Vale near Pershore this week.
Brooks, playing in the last group of the day, set the theme of the tournament by carding a flawless 7 under par, 67 to lead by two and set a new course record.
The chasing pack was lead by Brett Taylor who carded a solid 5 under par 69 and sitting on 4 under and ready to pounce on Brooks were Craig Housden, Jack Winer and James Jankowski.
On the second day James Webber added a consistent 4 under par 70 to his first round 71 to briefly hold the clubhouse lead on seven under par.
Brooks and Taylor battled all the way to the wire but Brooks settled the matter with an emphatic birdie at the last to card a 6 under par 68 and give him a final total of thirteen under par 135 to win £4,000.
Brett Taylor with an excellent, birdie, birdie finish added a second 69 to his to his first round totaling 10 under winning £2,000 for his efforts.
James Webber came third on 7 under to win £1,500 for his two golfing days over the magnificent International Course which apart from being a great course to play is a visual feast of woodlands and lakes.
Alex Morton and Perry Morgan not featuring in the final mix still had reason to celebrate both having scored a "Hole in One" to pick up £100 each for their achievements.
The International was prepared to a standard which brought nothing but praise from the players and would sit with ease as a European Tour venue.
With regard to the hospitality on offer you only had to see the clubhouse full of golfers consuming the seemingly endless stream of reasonably priced food coming from the kitchens.
