Motocaddy Masters :: Chaudhuri victorious

2014 07 Neil Chaudhuri08

Neil Chaudhuri claimed his first professional title with victory in the PGA EuroPro Tour’s Motocaddy Masters at The Carrick on Loch Lomond yesterday.


The win earned the Leicester golfer £10,000 plus a brand new, top-of-the-range Motocaddy M3 Pro. He finished on eight under for his 54 holes, four clear of nearest challengers Mark Murphy and two-time European Tour winner Bradley Dredge on four-under.

Chaudhuri began the day one clear of Murphy on six-under and shot a final-round of two-under 69, Murphy carded a final-round 72 on the par-71 course to take home £3,750, and one of Motocaddy’s recently launched M1 Lite Push Trolleys.

Dredge carded the best round of the day, a four-under 67 and came away with the same cash prize as Murphy. He also received a brand new Motocaddy S1 PRO. As Dredge and Murphy tied for second, the Motocaddy trolleys were awarded based on Order of Merit position.

Chaudhuri had led for most of the tournament and maintained control throughout the final round with birdies at 14 and 15. “It is my first win in nearly five years as a professional,” he said. “It means a lot because I really struggled for my first couple of years as a pro. I stuck at it and I feel really proud to have won today.

“I went to Qualifying School earlier in the year and only just got my card, so I felt lucky to be playing on the Tour. I have been improving week on week and it went pretty well this week.
 "Ultimately, I want to be on the European Tour." - Neil Chaudhuri

“It is such a huge first prize to win £10,000 and that bumps you towards the top of the Order of Merit. A lot can change in a week. Ultimately, I want to be on the European Tour and what we are all here for is to get onto the Challenge Tour and be one step away from the European Tour.”

Neil Fenwick was the leading Scot on six-under. He shared fourth spot with James Maw of Rockliffe Hall and Max Williams from Cuddington Golf Club.

In addition, Nick McCarthy’s second round 65 (six-under-par) has also been confirmed as a new course record at The Carrick.
