A final round, joint best of the day 64 (-8) that included eleven 3’s wasn’t quite enough for Jamie Elson to claim top spot in EuroPro Tour Championship at Desert Springs, Spain. Two days of frustration on the greens meant Jamie started the final round at one under par adrift of the leader on -12 but a stella performance on the final day when the putter finally caught fire meant Elson finished in a tie for 5th place (-9), his third Top-5 finish in only six starts on the EuroPro schedule.
In the end Jordan Smith from Bowood Golf & Country Club who also shot a final round 64 prevailed in a three man play-off with Aaron Rai and Daniel Gavins to claim the jackpot prize of £20,000. The three finished on -13 just four shots ahead of Elson.
A terrific effort Jamie, well played!
