Senior Golf Circuit Finale
The La Serena Club, in Spain’s Murcia region, has water on 16 holes. Beautiful to look at in fair weather, but inconvenient in the strong winds that blew in the final round of the Senior Golf Circuit Finale.
Miguel Angel Martin, who had cruised to victory in the warm up tournament, opened with a solid 70. However, after noticing an error on the card, he honourably pointed out the mistake and graciously accepted the inevitable disqualification. Meanwhile, club’s green staff were playing hard ball, placing tees at the back and tucking the flags in the corners of the greens. Of course an Aberdonian should be comfortable with clear blue skies and a stiff breeze, but Nick Robson’s closing 67 still completely stunned the pros. He comfortably won the title with a six under par total and became the first amateur ever to win on the SGC.
Nick moved to 15th on the final order of merit and tied with Paul Wesselingh. Paul Broadhurst topped the 2014 rankings which includes 98 other prize winners.
