Longridge man one win from scooping £250,000 EuroPro Tour jackpot

Mark Young won a dramatic three-way playoff at the HotelPlanner.com PGA EuroPro Tour’s PREM Group Irish Masters to earn his third EuroPro Tour title of the season at Tulfarris Hotel & Golf Resort, Wicklow.

The win saw Young confirm his spot on the Challenge Tour next season and also brought him to within one win of the coveted £250,000 four-win bonus.

“It sounds great, but we’ll have to see what happens,” he said. “It’s very difficult to win golf tournaments on this tour and I’ve been fortunate to win three, but I’m in a position where it is possible now to win the bonus.

“It would be massive to win the bonus, it would set me up for playing at the higher levels for many years, but I’ve not got there yet.”

The Longridge man started the day four shots off the lead and had it all to do on windy final round on the Blessington Lakes, but he set the clubhouse lead alongside Clevedon’s Ashley Mansell on nine-under-par.

However, it looked as though Tomasz Anderson would be clinching the event as he reached 11-under-par heading down the 18th – until disaster struck.

Anderson found himself in a fairway bunker over 190 yards from the pin, and in going for the green, hit his approach way left and flush to a clubhouse wall.

Forced to play his shot left-handed, he struck his shot through the green and into a bunker and could only get up and down for a double-bogey, joining Young and Mansell in clubhouse on nine-under par.

An all-English play-off involving Young, Anderson, and Mansell only lasted one hole as Mansell and Anderson could only manage to bogey the 18th, whereas Young rolled in a two-foot par putt for his third win of the season.
