It was a great day at the Nick Faldo Tournament for Club Champions at Welwyn Garden City Golf Club. Jon Siddons, Longcliffe and Leicestershire Champion, with caddy Rich Wells, competed in the 36 hole scratch competition.
The course was in great condition with the greens running at 11 on the Stimpmeter. Jon shot a one under par 69 in the morning round to lead the field by one shot in sunny conditions. In the afternoon the wind picked up which made playing more challenging. Jon again played well, but a couple of missed opportunities on the greens proved decisive. His ultimate and final shot was great....a holed bunker shot from the side of the green.... in front of a large audience to give a score of one over 71 and a total of 140. In a tight finish, and with the possibility of a play off, the winner came from the final group with a two round score of 139 to win by one.
Congratulations go to Jon for representing Longcliffe so admirably. It was a fantastic effort!!
