Steve Brotherhood Wins Notts Open

Steve Brotherhood Wins Notts Open

After a thrilling 3 man playoff Steve came out victor on the first sudden death play off hole on Sunday 23rd September at Newark Golf Club.

Steve shot a 2 under, 69 in the morning round and a 2 over, 73 in the afternoon to finish on equal 142 with Martin Foulkes and Mark Wildgoose of Worksop Golf Club, Martin and Steve finished the last 4 holes in a light shower that developed into heavy rain as all 3 competitors started the 3 hole playoff down holes 10, 17 and 18.

Steve and Mark both completed hole 10 in par, while Martin birdied from 10 feet to give him a 1 shot lead, all three completed hole 17 in par, and all players were playing their second shots in to the 18th green from the middle of the 18th fairway, Steve played a magnificent 2nd shot to 2 feet for a birdie to take the playoff to sudden death down 10, unfortunately Mark failed to make the required birdie to continue into sudden death playoff

Both players found the fairway with Martin to play first, he misjudged his second shot and nearly put his ball OB at the back of the green, Steve played a measured shot to the heart of the green 15 feet from the pin, Martin failed to get up and down which gave Steve 2 putts to win.

Like a true champion Steve dropped the putt for a birdie 3 and the title of Notts Open Champion 2015.

Congratulations to Steve and Charlie Lager who also qualified for this event and finished in 8th position.
