Reynolds scoops Celtic Manor prize
Fakenham' s Randy Reynolds has won the first Golf Days UK Norfolk Tour – and a hotel break at Celtic Manor where he will play the Twenty Ten course.
The Tour runner-up was Lew Dyer who won a set of customfit TaylorMade irons from sponsor Chris Potter Golf.
Reynolds and Dyer both played in nine out of ten events on the Tour's schedule and held the top two positions going in to the final event at Great Yarmouth & Caister.
There, Reynolds scored just 26 points and Dyer had to retire injured, but they couldn't be caught. The aggregate of Reynolds's five best scores was 159 while Dyer was two points behind on 157. At the start of the day several players were in with a chance if they posted a good round but only two players managed to improve their position on the overall leaderboard.
The final event was won by Nick Flett with 36 points but, having played in just two events he was not able to threaten the overall leaderboard. Neil Featherstone was second with 32 points and moved up the leaderboard to third place with a five-score aggregate of 155. Newcomer Adam Sauders took third spot with 28 points on countback from Neil Carey.
Carey started the day in third position on the Tour and needed to birdie the 18th to force a play-off with Dyer but a wayward drive on the last, which led to a lost ball, dashed his hopes and he remained on 154 points overall.
Next year sees the Tour returning to Norfolk with a trip to Turnberry on offer. The schedule begins at Great Yarmouth and Caister on 17 February 2012. For further details email email@example.com
