In weather which could only be described as truly British, 6 handicapper Dransfield was able secure his victory with a modest 31 points leaving 5 other amateur golfers each with 30 points to fight it out on count back for 2nd.
"My game plan was just to keep the ball in play" said Dransfield.
"To try and par my way around! but with the weather being so brutal I just took each hole and each shot on its own merit as it changed the golf course dramatically from those on the scorecard. I just battled each hole, irons off tees whereever possible, laying up and backing myself to up and down for pars when there was lots of trouble around the greens"
Despite the weather all who attended the event at De Vere Wychwood Park commended the course for its condition and the challenges it delivered.
With 5 events completed the Gtour takes a break for a few weeks before returning to the North West on the 21st July at De Vere Mottram Hall, another popular venue of seasons passed.
Dransfield Added "Winning feels great, especially as it was so unexpected with 31 points! I'm looking forward to the next one and making sure I qualify and hopefully get through to Cyprus.
