Dan Seymour, from Newbury Golf Centre in Berkshire, won a dramatic play-off at Wensum Valley GC in Norfolk on Friday (27 April) to win the opening event of this year’s 888poker.com PGA EuroPro Tour and become Motocaddy Masters champion for 2012.
In an event cut from 54 to 36 holes due to heavy rain, 24-year-old Seymour shot a final round 72 to tie with Sundridge Park’s Liam Burns, before birdying the second sudden death play-off hole to claim the £10,000 winners’ prize.
After his first EuroPro victory since joining the Tour in 2010, the new Motocaddy Masters champion said: “When you play in bad weather it’s more about your attitude than anything else…and when I saw I was one behind walking down the last, I thought I’ve got to go after that score.”
This year marks the seventh consecutive year that Motocaddy has been the ‘Official Electric Trolley’ of the EuroPro Tour and previous winners of the Motocaddy Masters title include current European Tour player Daniel Gaunt.
“It was great to see so many talented young players battling it out for the Motocaddy Masters title and our congratulations go to Dan on his victory,” said Chairman David Wells. “Many of the players on the EuroPro Tour use a Motocaddy trolley and we always value their feedback on its performance when coming up with new innovations.”
