After the pyrotechnics and heavy rain on practice day, the players teed off on day one at The Warwickshire in bright sunshine and just a very light breeze.
A low scoring tournament was a distinct possibility as long as the unpredictable summer weather left us bathed in sunshine and not jet washed by rain.
The event had almost a European Tour feel about it with the likes of Paul Broadhurst, Stephen Dodd, Tom Whitehouse and Dan Brooks all pegging it up on the Kings Course.
It was the talented lad from Clevedon Golf Club, Ashley Mansell who set the standard for the day navigating his way around the Kings course in a solid 4 under par 68. Immediately after, in the group behind, James Doswell also carded a fine 4 under par 68.
Just a couple of groups later Martin Sell presented yet another 4 under par compilation and that was to be the leading total for the rest of the day as the weather slowly deteriorated.
Very experienced European Tour veteran Paul Broadhurst led the chasing pack of Neil O'Briain, Stuart Runcie and Craig Smith, all handily placed at 3 under par for a tilt at winning the event.
In fact a total of 22 players broke par, so any one of them had a realistic opportunity to snatch the title given the right breaks.
God, what an awful summer we are having, where every tournament seems to be dogged by bad weather and as dawn broke over the Warwickshire on the second day there was the oh, so familiar rain clouds depositing their cargo over the Kings Course.
As the day wore on the weather cheered up and so did the golf and one of the early highlights of the day was a hole-in-one by Richard Gurney on the par 3 seventeenth that earned him a nice cheque for £100.
Neil Reilly ,"The Sweep Wizard", was the first to show the scoring potential of the Kings course, carding a fine 5 under par 67 to become the tournament leader on 3 under par.
Dan Brooks was playing several groups ahead of Sell and used all of his vast experience to post a score of 6 under par 66 that when added to his first round set an early target of 7 under par for Sell to catch.
Doncaster's, Michael Hempstock carded a solid 3 under par final round to overtake Reilly on 4 under par and he was soon joined by Simon Lilly, Craig Smith and the relaxed Dubliner, Neil O'Briain, where they eventually finished tied third, each of them winning £925.
Despite having a minor "Oops" on the fourth hole where a double bogey dropped him back towards the pack, Sell produced flawless golf and played out the last 14 holes in 7 under par to compile a tournament wining round of 66 to finish the tournament 3 shots clear of Brooks on 10 under par.
Brook's had to be satisfied with his second place cheque for £2,000 whilst Sell picked up the main prize of £4,500 to become a two time winner on The Jamega Tour in 2012.
The Warwickshire is always a delight to visit and with the course in pristine condition and greens that were quick and true it was a joy for the players and the several members who witnessed the excellent golf being played.
