Adam Keogh and Richard O’Hanlon posted six-under-par rounds of 66 to finish tied first in the Northampton Golf Club Pro-Am but the latter was left to ponder what might have been.
The pair had to take part in a sudden death play-off to determine who would claim the TAG Heuer watch that, donated by Northampton and Banbury-based Michael Jones Jewellers, was presented to the tournament winner.
In the event Keogh (above), who is attached to Spalding Golf Club, prevailed at the second play-off hole but not before his rival had missed a golden opportunity at the first.
Reflecting on the outcome, O’Hanlon (right), who represents St Kew Golf Club in Cornwall, tweeted: “It’s not often you feel annoyed after shooting six-under and finishing tied-first.
“Then to lose in a play-off for a TAG Heuer watch after missing from less than 18 inches to win the first hole …..”
Earlier both players had birdied the par-four 18th to set up the play-off and earn £675. That final birdie was Keogh’s sixth in a bogey-free round and O’Hanlon’s fifth in a round that included one dropped shot and an eagle at the par-three fifth.
As a result, the pair finished three shots clear of in-form Chris Evans who went into the tournament buoyed by back-to-back wins at South Luffenham and Kidderminster.
Meanwhile, Simon Williams of Cold Ashby Golf Club led his trio of amateurs to victory in the team event with a 22-under-par two ball better-ball score of 122.
