TP Tour Produces Drama With Quickfire Events
Former European Tour winner Daniel Brooks marked his return from a wrist injury to shoot a sparkling 64 to win his comeback event on the TP Tour at Sandy Lodge.
Highly Recommended on Golfshake, the Hertfordshire venue (designed by the legendary Harry Vardon) was in tremendous condition, with excellent scoring throughout the day, but it was the 33-year-old who claimed victory by two shots from Ryan Cornfield.
Daniel Gaunt and Zane Scotland were among the players taking away prize money, both finishing in a tie for 16th place.
This was the first of two quickfire tournaments on the circuit, as just a few days later at Burhill Golf Club, 49-year-old Sean Whiffin secured his sixth title on the TP Tour, recovering from a poor start to record seven birdies, but nonetheless it would take extra holes to decide the fate of the day, with the veteran overcoming talented young professional Piers Berrington in a playoff.
It's the latest success for Sean, who has twice won the Order of Merit and made the cut in the 2004 Open Championship at Royal Troon.
Additionally, 16-year-old Shergo Kurdi was the leading amateur, finishing in fifth place, a significant result for the youngster.
Managed to win a Tptour event! It feels Incredibly hard to win one of these with all the young lads going low so easily these days, I didn’t think there would be much chance to win one being a senior! Felt for Piers in the playoff but he’ll have loads more chances! @tptourgolf pic.twitter.com/u6xbOIE5Ja— Sean Whiffin (@sean_whiffin) August 11, 2020
