BGC British Masters: Statistical Review

BGC British Masters: Statistical Review

May 8th, 2012

Martin LeMesurier (South Winchester Golf Club) won the BGC British Masters at Lingfield Park last week with a final score of nine under par.

With the dust settling, and hopefully the course drying out, we take a look at the statistics from the second event of the PGA EuroPro Tour season to try and identify where the competition was won and lost.

The most fruitful hole during the BGC British Masters was the second, a par-five which offered an average score of 4.62 during the tournament. Eight eagles and 122 birdies were carded on the hole, which only saw above-par scores on 28 occasions (20 bogeys, eight doubles).

The 18th proved the most testing hole for the golfers, with the average score 0.49 over par. Only the par-three first (3) saw fewer birdies than the 12 that were made on the 18th, which also saw the highest number of bogeys (100) and double-bogeys (17) of any hole on the course. It is worth noting that at 467 yards the 18th was the longest par four at the BGC British Masters and is usually played as a par five at Lingfield Park.

Jamie Howarth (De Vere Mottram Hall) made par or better on 92.6% of the holes he played, the best rate in the competition. Tim Rice (Limerick) and Steve Uzzell (Hornsea Golf Club) topped the chart for most birdies with 15 each which Stuart Manley (Machynys Peninsula) was the only player to hit two eagles in the competition, both in his first round on holes two and nine.

Across the three rounds Manley, who finished third with seven under, gained eight shots on the front nine but ended one over if you were only to consider scores on the back nine. The same applies for second-placed Tim Rice, who scored eight under on the front nine but one under through the second half of the course. In contrast winner LeMesurier did better on the back nine, averaging 33 (par 35) compared to his average of 35 on the par-36 front nine.
