LeMesurier wins BGC British Masters

LeMesurier wins BGC British Masters

May 4th, 2012

Martin LeMesurier made five birdies and an eagle in his final round to win the BGC British Masters at Lingfield Park.

LeMesurier (South Winchester Golf Club) shot six under on his third round to complete the 54-hole PGA EuroPro Tour event nine under, one shot ahead of second-place Tim Rice (Limerick), who shot four under for the day.

Stuart Manley (Machynys Peninsula) parred his final round to complete the tournament seven under and take third place. Steve Uzzell (Hornsea Golf Club) and Daniel Brooks (Mill Hill) tied for fourth on six under.

“I got off to a good start, chipping in for an eagle on two,” reflected LeMesurier after collecting his winner’s cheque.

“That got me going in a good direction and I played steadily from there. I missed a few putts but kept hitting it close; it was one of those days where I made putts when I needed to.

“I birdied nine and ten with a couple of nice putts but I didn’t really know what the other guys were doing at that point.

“I saw them changing the leaderboard at the 17th tee just after I had teed off. I saw that Tim [Rice] had finished eight under and that Stuart [Manley] had dropped back to seven under. At that point I knew I needed two pars.

“It’s my first EuroPro Tour win, I have had some Challenge Tour wins but none on the EuroPro.

“I have been playing on the EuroPro on and off for the best part of ten years now, so it has been a long-time coming this first win!”

During the presentation ceremony LeMesurier was quick to praise the work of the greenkeepers and paid tribute to them again after collecting his reward.

“I thought it would be another case of only being able to play 36 holes as it was at Wensum Valley last week,” he admitted. “But the greenkeepers worked incredibly hard and did an excellent job.

“When I first got here I thought there was a lake on the driving range but it was just waterlogged from the rain! Considering how much rain we have had over the last few weeks it has been an outstanding effort to get the course playable.”
