Brilliant Broadhurst takes the spoils at Formby

Paul Broadhurst added his name to a long list of winners by securing victory in the Staysure PGA Seniors Championship at Formby Golf Club.

The Englishman posted a closing three under par round of 69 to reach seven under par and finish one stroke clear of Frenchman Thomas Levet and England’s John Bickerton, who shared second place on six under par.

Sunday’s victory ends a spell of almost three years without a win for the double Senior Major Champion and the 55-year-old was met by rapturous applause after holing the final putt in front of big crowds at Formby.

“It feels pretty special to win a tournament of this stature on a links course,” he said. “I enjoyed playing the golf course. I remember some of the holes from ’85 in the British Amateur when I played here last, my son played here a few years ago in the English Amateur and he said ‘it’s a tough track, Dad, you’ve got hit it straight’ but I drove it well all week really. I didn’t hit many poor drives and I got it done in the end.

“It looked like it was slipping away a little bit, nothing was really happening. I had a few bogeys, made a couple of mistakes that I didn’t feel were that bad a shot, but that’s what happens in links golf. You can be just off and get penalised.”
