British Par-3 Championship play-off drama

2014 08 Dsc2827

After two days of competition, Eddie Pepperell has won this year's Farmfoods British Par-3 Championship after a tense play-off against qualifier Jak Hamblett. For his efforts, Pepperell takes home £25,000 in prize money.


Both men finished the event on seven-under, before Pepperell eventually triumphed by chipping in on the third extra-hole of the play-off, clinching victory.

Pepperell is a promising young English golfer who finished as runner-up in the Boys Amateur Championship in 2009 and qualified for his first major at the 2013 US Open.

Englishman Hamblett was leading after the first day of the championship, with a score of three-under, but Pepperell eventually caught him to force the tense finish.

Closely behind Pepperell and Hamblett were Paul Lawrie and Gary Wolstenholme, who impressed with excellent second rounds at Nailcote Hall. Although, ultimately the pair would narrowly missed out on the play-off spots, and with it, a chance at British par-3 Championship glory.

Earlier in the day, former Open champion Lawrie shot an incredible eight-under-par for his second round to tie for the lead with Senior Tour star Wolstenholme.

As well as Lawrie and Wolstenholme, former Ryder Cup player Peter Baker was also in the hunt at the closing stages, but he too missed out.

In addition to the play-off, the final day also saw holes-in-one for Gary Wolstenholme, Tommy Horton, DJ Russell and Raymond Russell.

At the end of the tournament, the leading team was David Nelson partnered with former Masters champion Ian Woosnam. Other prizes went to Carl Mason, who won the prize for the Super Seniors contest winning £5,000, and Luke Turbutt, who won the Norma C Herd Silver Salver for finishing as the leading amateur. ​
