Open Championship – Top-10 Greatest Hits – #5

The beauty of Open Championship golf and links golf for that matter is that it demands a variety of shots scarcely seen across the weekly haunts of the PGA and European Tours. Here's two great examples

Open Championship – Top-10 Greatest Hits – #6

Who could forget the image of Jordan Spieth way right, deep into the dunes, faced with an unplayable lie, his procession towards a first Open Championship in serious jeopardy

Shannon’s Daniel Brennan and Clandeboye’s Jonathan Caldwell both broke 70 to secure top-5 finishes at the EuroPro Tour’s GolfCatcher Championship at Dudsbury Golf Club.

With temperatures soaring, the scores weren’t half hot either with Caldwell firing five birdies in a superb four-under par 67.

Joining him at five-under par was Brennan who found five birdies of his own to eventually sign for a two-under 69; the Irish pair sharing fourth and collecting £1,638 for their week’s work.

As for Cameron Raymond, who rediscovered some of his exciting form of last year with a 65 in round two, the St Anne’s professional struggled to the finish line, eventually signing for a 75 and a one-over par tally leaving him just inside the top-40.

At the top, Alfie Plant pulled off an extraordinary back nine to win the event.

Going into his final round, Plant (Sundridge Park Golf Club) was five shots behind Marco Penge of Golf at Goodwood but recovered going six under in his final round to win by one stroke after Penge went level par.

Plant’s back nine included five birdies. He said: “It feels great. There was a lot to ask today and I needed everything to go for me, it did. Ecstatic. I only kind of got wind on the 12th tee that he (Marco Penge) was 12 or 13 so I just went birdie, birdie and keep my foot on the gas.”

“I’d love to know what was different. All of us guys work really hard. Sometimes you don’t know what you’re doing any different to previously. Sometimes it just clicks.”

Overnight leader, Marco Penge lost his lead on fifteen with a double bogey after going around the front nine three under par. A birdie on seventeen meant he had to birdie the last to level.

Elsewhere, there was a strong finish for Jamie Dick (Forest Hills Golf Club) with his highest finish of the season coming third with rounds of 70, 67 and 69.

Whilst Josh Hilleard (Farrington Park/G4L) posted a final round of five under to tie for fourth with Jonathan Caldwell (Clandeyboye Golf Club), Will Whiteoak (Shipley Golf Club) and Daniel Brennan (Shannon Golf Club)

Ben Hall (TSR Recruitment), Ben Ferguson (The Vines), Daniel Young (Kingsbarns Pro Academy), Jamie Bower (Meltham Golf Club), Robert Burlison (Enville Golf Club) and Richard Mansell (Beau Desert Golf Club) all tied for eighth.

Many players will be at The Open regional final qualifying on Tuesday including Alfie Plant and the PGA EuroPro Tour’s own John E. Morgan.
