2016 06 Ag Senior Finalists
AMERICAN GOLF

American Golf has confirmed the first wave of competitors for its National Grand Finals weekend with the completion of its Senior Championship qualifiers.


Hundreds of competitors took part in the Pairs better ball stableford competition over four 18-hole qualifiers. Three teams from each event qualified for the National Finals, which will be held at Ryder Cup venue, The Belfry, on September 9-10.

Each qualifier was hotly contested with four points the maximum difference across the top three qualifiers at each event. The Midlands qualifier at Penn Golf Club was especially tight with Mike Hatton and Tony Smith edging one point ahead of the second and third qualifying pairs.

The Welsh qualifier at Pontnewydd Golf Club provided the first all-female team. Hannah Harris and Pauline Smith battled appalling conditions to bag the third coveted qualifying position. After nine holes the Gwent course disappeared under water and the event was called with halfway scores counting.

The final qualifier at Rustington brought back last year’s American Golf 9 Hole Championship finalists Martin Derrick and Andy Gilbert, qualifying with an impressive 49 points, proving their ability to perform under pressure over the longer format.
