KDM's Craig Poulton won the inaugural WP Senior Masters at Strand yesterday on a very impressive score of 138, 6 under par.
Poulton went into yesterday's final round with a one stroke lead over Francois le Roux and both players went out in 1 under 35. Pouton exetended his lead to 3 with a birdie to Le Roux's bogey so he led by 3 heading down the 15th. After Le Roux stiffed his approach on 15, Poulton held from off the green to halve in birdies. The par 5 16th saw both players make birdie and le Roux closed the gap to 2 when he completed his hat-trick with a 2 on 17. In the end that was as close as he got and his second consecutive 70 meant he finished on 140, 2 behind.
The win was Poulton's first provincial senior win while Le Roux ended top of the WP Senior rankings.
