Jevann is in Seventh Heaven [UPDATED - GALLERY ADDED]
England’s Jevann Parmar put together two solid rounds of golf to win The Players Masters by a single shot from five other players, scoring a tremendous 9 under par total of 135, with his 8 under par final round being the highlight.
At the end of the first day at The Players Club we had a truly International leader board with an Englishman (Steve Surry), a Scotsman (Rory Smith) and an Australian (Will Heffernan), leading the way on 7 under par ahead of, Sam Edwards on 6 under and Alfredo Curbishley, alongside Henry Sheridan-Mills on 5 under par.
The scoring, on an ideal day for golf, was exceptional, with no less than 32 players scoring par or better over the par 72 Codrington course.
The second day brought sunny spells with light winds, which was going to promote some low scoring and an interesting second days play.
This was indeed the case, when South Africa’s Lyle Rowe posted a magnificent 8 under par 64 but unfortunately Rowe’s first round of 76 put him out of the running.
The international flavour of the tournament continued when India’s Digraj Singh Gill added a 6 under par 66 to his first-round effort of 76 but again it was not going to be low enough.
As the scores came in thick and fast it was England’s Daniel Hendry who set the target for the leaders to chase, when he equalled Rowe’s second round 64 to post an 8 under par total for the tournament.
George Bloor continued the low scoring trend, with a 7 under par 65 but he came up just one shy of tying Hendry for the clubhouse lead.
David James and Louis Campbell joined Hendry on 8 under par, after scoring 65 and 66 respectively but Jevann Parmar went into the lead on 9 under par after he scored yet another 8 under par 64.
So, with none of the first-round leaders capitalising on their first-round scores, it was a delighted Parmar who pocketed the guaranteed winner’s cheque for £3,500,
The Players club is one of our favourite venues, where we and the players are always made to feel welcome and where nothing is too much trouble for the clubhouse staff and the course is always beautifully presented thanks to the hard work of the greens staff led by Nick Perkins.
