FORMER PGA champion Scott Drummond won his first tournament since lifting the prestigious Major trophy at Wentworth eight years ago when he claimed the Jamega Tour event held at Aldwickbury Park Golf Club last week.
The 38-year-old, who was European Tour Rookie of the Year in 2004, carded an impressive seven-under-par round on the Park Course at Aldwickbury Park.
There was widespread praise for the course in Harpenden from both players and organisers of the Jamega Tour – the first stepping stone in tournament golf and a feeder to the European Challenge Tour, the second tier of the lucrative European Tour.
Drummond (pictured) finished three shots ahead of Nick Flynn and David James, who both picked up cheques for £1,750, while the winner walked away £3,000 richer.
This was the second year in succession that Aldwickbury Park has hosted this event and orgnisers are planning to return next year.
Tony Jones, tournament director, said: “Despite the atrocious weather conditions over the week before the tournament the course was in very good condition, far better than we anticipated. Stuart Langhorn (Aldwickbury Park course manager) is one of the best around and he and his staff did an excellent job.”
He added: “All the players who contest our tournaments are high class professionals and many have played on the European Tour, but they haven’t been able to tear Aldwickbury Park apart.”
