We returned back to the beautiful Bolton Golf Club for our 3rd Major of 2019 - The Bunkers Invitational.
Bolton is a course that demands accuracy and good course management and one player displayed this consistency throughout his round - as he has done over the last few months.
A great knock of 39 Stableford points took the victory with a great display of golf from tee to green and reward after a being 'pipped' to victory a couple of times recently.
Congratulations to our 2019 Champion - Craig Masters
