The Hampshire Seniors County Championships, held at the picturesque Royal Winchester Golf Club on the 20th and 21st of May, proved to be an exhilarating event filled with exceptional performances on a tough golf course set up. Over the course of two days, golfers battled not just each other, but also the challenging course and variable weather conditions, culminating in a dramatic conclusion.

The competition reached its peak when Tim Gilbert emerged victorious over Alan Mew in a nail-biting playoff for the main prize. Both golfers finished the tournament tied at 6 over par, showcasing their skill and determination to grind out a score. The playoff on the 18th hole was nothing short of spectacular. With the pressure mounting, Tim Gilbert secured his win by birdieing the 18th with a superb downhill putt, a moment that drew enthusiastic applause from the gathered spectators. His calm demeanor and precision under pressure were truly commendable as he fist pumped the putt in for the win. You can check out the winning moment by viewing our Instagram Story- here
