Oliver Adamson wins the Open Championship at Hull

East Riding Open Sunday 25th July Hull Golf Club

 

A strong, although depleted, field due to fixture clashes and 'ping' victims, gathered on a beautiful day at Hull Golf Club.

 

The course was in splendid condition and once again a tough but fair test for all players.

Leading after the first round was Oliver Adamson from Ganton with a 3 under 67 . The round was built with 4 birdies in a row from the 2nd. 69's from Hull's Ben Rozenbroek and Steve Robins were the only other morning rounds under par but 10 players were within 4 shots

 

The early second rounds saw Steve Uzzell of Hornsea shoot 67 and Steve Robins post a 68 for a 2 round total of 3 under. Aaron Brettell (Hessle) had a 68 and Thomas Benson (Scarborough NC) 69.

 

There then followed a long wait until almost 7pm when Oliver Adamson playing in the last group of the day held on to win by one from Steve Robins with a 69.  He was 3 under for his second round after 15 holes but dropped two late shots after overhearing spectators saying he had a 3 shot lead. 

 

 

Congratulations Olly!

Thank you for Hull for hosting and for all the help on the day from the starter to the score desk.
