Brilliant Broadhurst Wins Scottsdale Title

Former Ryder Cup player Paul Broadhurst rolled back the years to win the annual Scottsdale Classic Pro-Am.

The 49-year-old, who represented Europe in the 1991 match at Kiawah Island, pieced together rounds of 69, 68, 72 and 64 for a 13-under-par total of 274. That was enough to see off fellow Englishman, Teignmouth’s Billy Hemstock, by two shots, with Chris Gane and James Ablett a further four shots adrift on seven-under.

Six-time European Tour winner Broadhurst pocketed a cheque for $3,000 in the event that was staged immediately following the PGA Tour’s Waste Management Phoenix Open at the same venue in Arizona.

The team event was equally close and exciting, with Ben St John’s Woodcote Park team charging through the field on the final day to win by two shots from Hemstock, with Anthony Sproston’s team third.

A strong field of professionals took part, including several former European Tour players, which was highlighted in the ‘Welcome Challenge Day’ at Grayhawk Golf Club, where former English Amateur champion James Heath was the winning professional on 37 points, with Broadhurst, Stephen McAllister and Simon Lilly tied for second.

Heath also won the mid-week TPC Scottsdale Challenge Day with a score of 36 points.
