Kevin Goude wins fourth event of Golf Days UK Race to Turnberry at Royal Norwich
The fourth event of the Golf Days UK Race to Turnberry was played at Royal Norwich, with tour regular Kevin Goude clinching the win.
Goude, despite being cut to +2 following his Essex Tour performance, still amassed 36 points, which included eagles on the seventh and 10th holes.
This was enough to take the event as many of the players found the lightning quick greens tough to post a high score. Second place was awarded to Nick Barrett with 33 points who took it on count-back from third-placed Adam Saunders also on 33.
Nearest the pin was claimed by Adam Saunders with his shot to the tree lined par three, ninth hole. There were many impressive drives down the par five 17th hole but it was Barrett who managed to hold the fairway to claim longest drive with his 299 yard effort.
With the two tour leaders unavailable for the Royal Norwich event the remainder of the field were poised to make a charge. Goude and Barrett took their opportunity and now share a tie of the lead with 135 points each after four events. Adam Saunders moves into third place with 127 points.
