Golfers from all over the south-east of England congregated at Warley Park Golf Club in Brentwood (Essex) for the 5th annual TSG Masters on 28th April 2018

Twenty-eight golfers and members from the popular Online Golf Club and Golf Society gathered at the Essex club, all hoping to be this year’s TSG Masters Champion golfer.

All had qualified via a variety of routes; some via the website’s monthly leaderboard, some via other TSG ‘Major’ events with the remaining spaces snapped up via the ballot or by special invitation with no one wishing to miss out on the first TSG major trophy of the year…

This mixed golf event provided plenty of healthy competition and while some TSGers were familiar with the course layout, most were new to it.

The field, ranging from 4 handicappers to 24, played the Childerditch and the Warley ’1 to 9′ loop, two very different layouts offering their own challenges, the latter including some superb water features.

As always, it was the greens at Warley that proved the real test, with only six players reaching 30 pts but after 18 holes, it was a local boy David Johnson who triumphed by scoring a respectable 37 pts (three shots ahead of the field) to become the new TSG Champion.

However, we’ll leave the final words to our new TSG Masters Champion…

Essex Golfer takes The Social Golfer Masters title at Warley Park – What they said…

“What a day! Before this, I’d never won a golf day, let alone a ‘Major’ so I can’t wait to get home and share it with the family! Warley Park is a real test of golf and no one was more surprised than I when I found out I’d come top of the leaderboard.”

He went on to say…

“A big thank you to the TSG organisers and Warley Park GC for putting on a such a memorable day! I joined The Social Golfer in 2013 and have since played nearly fifty different courses but this tops it all. Already looking forward to defending my title next year!”
