Stewart and Fenwick slump in wind and rain

at EuroPro Tour final day

Michael Stewart  (Troon Welbeck) and Dunbar's Neil Fenwick, the only Scots to survive the second-round cut in this week's EuroPro Tour event at Burnham and Berrow Golf Club, had disappointing final rounds in the wind and rain which made the last day a survival of the fittest.
Stewart shot 74, 66 and 76 over the par-70 Somerset lay-out for a total of six-over 216. A T20 finish earned him £485.
Fenwick had two 8s - the first at the par-5 sixth and the second at the par-4 15th - in halves of 39 and 43 for an 82 which followed scores of 68 and 74. His aggregate of 14-over 224 placed him 48th and earned him only £315.
Jonathan Caldwell (Clandeboye) from Northern Ireland won the £10,000 first prize by two strokes with scores of 66, 72 and 69 for a three-under total of 207. Runner-up was Jason Timmis (Greenway Hall) with scores of 70, 72 and 67 which earned him £6,000.
Greg Payne (Camberley Heath) finished third on 211 (68-72-71) and earned £3,000.

Caldwell wins £10,000 prize by two strokes

Jonathan Caldwell carded a final-round 69 to win the COBRA PUMA GOLF Championship by two shots on nine under par on a wet and windy day at Machynys Peninsula Golf Club in Llanelli.
The PGA EuroPro Tour event was suspended for 1 hour 45 minutes in the early stages of the final round due to heavy and persistent rain causing standing water on the course. At that stage Caldwell (Clandeboye Golf Club) led on seven under par, with overnight leader Chris Evans (Hatchford Brook Golf Club) having started with a double and then triple bogey.
Jason Timmis (Greenway Hall Golf Club) put pressure on the Northern Irishman with a fantastic final-round 67, five under par, to finish seven under but four birdies to just one bogey on the back nine saw Caldwell to nine under and his second EuroPro title.
“It has been a long day, but I am absolutely over the moon,” said Caldwell, who wins £10,000 as well as a brand new Motocaddy S3 PRO electric trolley with lithium battery, Bushnell Pro X2 Range Finder and Bolle sunglasses.
“I made two par saves at 16 and 17 and they were massive. There were always going to be holes where you have to scramble and it just happened to be two of my last three, but I am delighted to get the job done.
“It was a game of patience. Pars were huge out there and birdies are even bigger. It is massive to get the win, you need to on this tour, and it would be great to get another win and secure that top five position on the Race To Amendoeira.”
Caldwell climbs to third on the tour rankings, from which the top five at the end of the season earn promotion to the Challenge Tour.
Greg Payne (Camberley Heath / MindSet4Golf) finished third on five under while five golfers shared fourth having finished four under par, including 2016 Amateur Champion Scott Gregory.
Highlights of the COBRA PUMA GOLF Championship will air on Sky Sports Golf on Tuesday, August 1. The PGA EuroPro Tour continues with the Matchroom Sport Championship at Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa, Wednesday, July 26 – Friday, July 28.
