Seymour eyes second success

Seymour eyes second success

May 1st, 2012

Motocaddy Masters winner Dan Seymour has his eyes set on winning back-to-back events as the PGA EuroPro Tour moves to Lingfield Park, a course which suits the 24-year-old’s style, for the BGC British Masters.

Last week Seymour beat Liam Burns in a dramatic play-off at the end of a rain-hit competition at Wensum Valley. Like much of the country the Norfolk course was hit by wet weather last week and the tournament had to be reduced from 54 to 36 holes.

After a disappointing end to his first round – Seymour dropped four shots on the last three holes – the Newbury-based golfer regained his focus to par the final 18 as the overnight leaders fell away. That left him on one under, setting up a play-off with Burns. After two extra holes on the 18th Seymour won his first PGA EuroPro Tour title.

Now he has his sights on back-to-back titles as he returns to Lingfield Park, where he failed to make the cut last August.

“I will be the only one playing at Lingfield who has a chance of winning back-to-back tournaments on the Tour,” he said. “That is a nice thing to have on you.

“I know it will be difficult but I’ll be focused on my game. I’ll add it all up at the end of the week and see if it is enough again. Hopefully we will get 54 holes in but if the weather remains bad who knows. But I am certainly looking forward to it.

“Lingfield is my sort of course. I don’t hit the ball that far compared to some of the guys nowadays and Lingfield is quite tight and quite short. It’s the type of course where you have to hit it into positions so that should suit me, even though I played Lingfield last year with not much success!

“You have to hit it straight there. It doesn’t really matter what club you use off each tee, you just need to hit it to point A, then to point B. You can’t just stand there and blast it, you have to be accurate.”

The BGC British Masters gets underway on Wednesday. A field of 156 players will begin the 54-hole strokeplay event with a cut of the top 50 and ties being made after 36 holes ahead of the final round on Friday. Live scoring will be available on this website with regular updates posted on our Twitter page, []@PGAEuroProTour[/url]
Entry is free for spectators throughout the competition.
