Brabazon Trophy 2017
Played this year at Woodhall Spa, the home of England Golf, in beautiful sunny conditions the Brabazon Trophy was Jake Burnage’s best finish yet in a hotly contested international field. The only player in the field to shoot all 4 rounds under par, Burnage finished day 3 in a 3 way tie to share the lead with Dorset’s Jack Singh Brar and South Africa’s Kyle McClatchie all on -9.
The final round started off very slow for the last pair out on the course, Burnage & Singh Brar who both struggled with their putting, whilst McClatchie went into the lead early on, by the 15th Burnage was back to -6 but managed to birdie the last 3 holes and bring himself back to -9 and a tie for 2nd place, McClatchie birdying the last for the win.
Burnage said “We both played alright and we spurred each other along, but we didn’t hole the putts. It’s sore for now but second in the Brabazon isn’t that bad, is it.”
