The 2018 winner of The Bunkers Wide Open was Craig Greenwood with a great medal score of 72 gross and 62 nett on what is a tricky and tight layout at Wigan Golf Club.
Shooting +2 off a handicap of 10 is impressive in any conditions but Wigan was particularly demanding for this visit, primarily because due to the prolonged hot weather we have enjoyed the course was dry and the ball was bounding on towards hazards throughout.
It commanded a performance where the player was in control of their ball off the tee box and hit greens with accuracy - in more of a links style, by pitching short and running on.
A wonderful victory for Craig and congratulations on a brilliant round of golf.
