Steven Tiley wins Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship
10 Aug 2018
Congratulations to Beavis Morgan sponsored Steven Tiley on winning this year's Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship following a dramatic final day at Nailcote Hall.
Steven scored -6 on the Cromwell Course to clinch victory and the €50,000 prize that comes with it.
The Challenge Tour player, and former European Tour star, went into the final day as the overnight leader following a fantastic opening round in which he scored -3 to put himself in contention.
In the end, it came down to a straight shootout between Steven and EuroPro star Andrew Marshall. There was only one stroke in it with Andrew ruing the double bogey he scored on the 3rd.
European Tour star, Aaron Rai and 2013 Norma C Herd Silver Salver winner, Craig Lawrie, put themselves into contention, and they along with Steven found themselves on the same score, and the prospect of a play-off, loomed large.
However, Craig fell away after bogeying on the 13th eventually finishing on -4 and when it looked like Aaron could go on to triumph after scoring a magnificent hole-in-one, his round ended with a double bogey on the final hole in front of the grandstand, a hole he has struggled with all day.
Speaking of his first ever Farmfoods British Par 3 championship victory, Steven says: “It was great to play out there today, Andrew [Marshall] put in a fantastic performance to keep me on my toes. Also, my playing partner Craig Lawrie put in a great performance. It is always good to go into battle with people who are also playing well.”
Well done Steven. From all of us at your proud sponsors, Beavis Morgan.
