The TSG Masters started with a warm welcome from Ian & The TSG Team, which included a no. of freebies including ball markers, discount vouchers and a FREE lesson for all who attended. The venue,
The venue, Warley Park GC, was fantastic, the course in great condition, the weather at its best providing us with the most superb views of the surrounding Essex countryside.
The TSG Masters – How they qualified?
Many players qualified from the monthly leaderboard with the remaining spaces snapped up via the ballot. All 40 places were taken up, with no one wishing to miss out on the first TSG ‘Major’ of the year.
This made for an exciting competition and while some TSGers were familiar with the new course layout, most were totally alien to it. We 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.
The TSG Masters – The Winners…
Our inaugural winner, Matt Taylor (Kent) scored a fantastic 38 Pts off his 12 h’cap with Andy Flynn 2nd (Essex – 37 Pts) and 3rd Damian Benstead (Sussex – 34 Pts).
We also competed for 2 x Nearest Pins and a ‘Straightest Drive’. Winners on the day included popular TSGers, Dave Allchorne, Judy Lilley, Andy Attard with Ben Fykin taking the Par 3 trophy.
However, we’ll leave the final words to our new TSG Masters Champion…
“The venue was a great choice and I’m sure everyone would agree a real challenge, those greens were fast! The views all around the course are worth the visit alone and I’m very much looking forward to returning with the very generous TSG four ball prize. All the little TSG touches made it feel really special on the day right from the welcome banner outside to the free gifts. My playing partners on the day were a pleasure to play with and it was great to meet all the new (to me) and old TSG faces after the round…. TSG epitomises the spirit of the game of golf and it’s great to know that whenever I play with someone new through the site, they’ll be like minded and great company. I must thank you all so much for making it the golfing day of my life and I can’t wait to see everyone again for the next TSG event at Bletchingley!“.
