Immaculate Richmond Golf Club Hosted TP Tour's Latest Event
The TP Tour's fourth event of the season was contested at the beautiful Richmond Golf Club, where a stunning day of sunshine welcomed the field of 65 players to the layout's immaculate fairways.
The event featured a strong field, comprised of many former European Tour, Senior Tour and International winners, Challenge Tour competitors, and Pro golfers from all over the UK. The course was in optimum condition, firm and fast with perfect greens. The strategic nature of the course was greatly in evidence as 7 players shot a level par round of 70, including former Portuguese Open winner Van Phillips.
Young Jack Yule from Kings Lynn went one better with a 69 and then two players bettered that by a stroke – 25-year-old Ashley Mason from Leicester and Surrey’s Jon Poulton. The third TP Tour event in a row proceeded to a sudden death playoff - for the two players on 2 under par. With a gallery of members at the 370-yard par 4 18th hole looking on, Poulton was left facing a decisive 6-foot par putt to win the tournament, which he calmly converted for an impressive win.
This was Jon‘s first win on the TP Tour after several close finishes, and he collected the first place cheque for £1,800.
The Tour moves on to Cambridge’s Gog Magog, on 1st June. The Tour then hosts the SSE Scottish Hydro Challenge Tour Qualifying, at the spectacular Macdonald Aviemore, Spey Valley on 9th June. Full Schedule and Results www.tptourseries.com.
