Andy Exall wins the British Masters


United Kingdom 23 Mar 2010 at 12:41 | Published by: Hans | Views: 4288 | News search

Andy Exall wins the British Masters BMGA News Release
Provided by Richard Gottfried:

Andy Exall from Paddock Wood, Kent, won the 11th annual BMGA British Masters minigolf tournament at the Jurassic Encounter Adventure Golf course at World of Golf, New Malden on Sunday 21st March.

40 players took part in the event, with British Minigolf Association (BMGA) Tour players, and a number of local and novice players competing in the two round (36-hole) tournament on the 18-hole Dinosaur themed Adventure Golf course. London’s Nick Chitty took the runner-up spot in the competition. Two players tied for third place and after a play-off Oxford’s Michael Smith took 3rd place, with London’s Brad Shepherd taking 4th.

New BMGA British Master Andy Exall said “It was very good to get the win at a course that was, as predicted, going to produce very close scores. The final round was good fun, with me, Nick Chitty and Michael Smith all playing well. Nick had a run of three aces in three holes which I thought was for the win, but he dropped a couple of shots which put us all on a three way tie after 15 holes! The 16th was a very tense hole, the volcano! I went first and opted to play for the very risky ace, luckily it was a good line and it dropped, Michael then tried the same and was left an impossible putt for a two, ending up with a three. Next was Nick, who laid-up for a safeish two. I then aced the next hole alone which left me two strokes up for the last hole, after an uneventful two all round it was time to don the famous Masters Jacket!”

Also at the event Leo Kukielka from Cwmbran, Wales, took the junior British Masters title, with Cambridge’s Adam Kelly 2nd and Birmingham’s Owen Johnson 3rd.

Commenting on his junior title win Leo Kukielka said “I am very pleased to have won. I knew that Adam was not far behind me so I tried to be consistent and not get many 3's. When I got a six on hole 16, I knew Adam had scored a five as he was in the group ahead of me, so I just had to keep my head to finish the last two holes. Thankfully I got 2's and finally won a junior title. COME ON!!”

Michael Smith also picked up the Novice title along, Richard Skeggs took the runner-up novice spot and Marc Brickwood was the third place novice. 16 rookie players took part in the competition.

After three events in the 2010 BMGA Tour season Chris Harding from Birmingham remains top of both the BMGA Order of Merit Rankings and Season Only Ranking list. Andy Exall’s win moves him back into the Order of Merit top five where he is now ranked 4th. After a strong run of events top British junior Leo Kukielka has moved up to 8th place overall in the Season Only rankings

The next tournaments on the BMGA Tour are the Midlands Open and BMGA British Doubles Championships in Stratford upon Avon in April, with the BMGA Scottish Open in Aberdeen in May.
