Goude gets his second win in the Norfolk Tour Finale
The final event of the Golf Days UK Norfolk Tour 2012 – The Race to Turnberry was hosted by a Marriott Sprowston Manor on Friday 23rd November. The weather was very kind to all those who played with bright sunshine and calm conditions making the perfect end to the 2012 Tour.
Kevin Goude (+2) played one of the most impressive rounds of the season and won the event with an excellent 37 points from Gordon Maclean and Nick Flett who both returned 36 points off their ¾ handicaps. Maclean took the runner up position on count back, his 20 points on the back 9 was enough to see if Flett who managed 17.
Goude’s card made great reading, 16 pars, a birdie and an eagle was enough for him to bag his second victory of the year and whilst many players struggled, Goude excelled.
Goude also won the long drive contest for single figure handicapped players, hitting a monster drive of 318 on the tough 14th hole. This was followed by also driving the 358 yard par 4 12th hole and making the putt to secure his eagle and move into a clear position at the top of the leaderboard. Neil Carey won the double figure handicapped players long drive, with a great effort of 238 yards. Nick Flett won the nearest the pin on the tricky downhill 14th.
The final day was made even more exciting by the live scoring system provided by Golf GameBook. Each group could keep an eye on where they were faring compared to the rest of the field and also on the Race to Turnberry overall leaderboard, where a tense finish was evolving.
