Crowther Is Latest English Ace To Score A Win In Wales

Crowther Is Latest English Ace To Score A Win In WalesIan Crowther continued a hot streak of success in Wales for English golfers by claiming a one-shot victory in the Welsh Open Senior Championship at Maesdu.

The Lancashire man birdied two of the last three holes to secure the title, finishing ahead of England senior team-mate Mark Stones, with Ian Attoe - the 2015 English senior champion - in third.

Crowther, above, became the third Englishman to win a Welsh title this season, following Max Martin of Warwickshire, who is the youths’ champion, and Gian-Marco Petrozzi of Staffordshire, the Welsh Strokeplay winner.

“To be Welsh Open Senior champion is a dream come true,” he said. “I’m over the moon, absolutely delighted.”

Crowther beat par twice in the championship, with rounds of 71 and 70 sandwiching a 78 for a three-over total. Weather conditions were challenging with strong winds and squalls making it tough for the players.

“I wasn’t really thinking about getting under par,” he added. “I was just playing every hole as it came, sticking the best score down and moving on. You were really trying to get back to the club house and hang on to whatever you had got out there.”

Crowther played in the England teams that won the 2016 Senior Home Internationals and took the bronze medal at the European Senior Men’s Team Championship. He was also part of the Lancashire team that won the English Senior Men’s County Championship.
