Pa­tel claims tro­phy af­ter round of his life

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

NORTH­WOOD golfer Kavit Pa­tel pro­duced the best round of his life as he looks to set up a game with a Euro­pean Tour star, writes Sam Meade.

His vic­tory in the Bridge­stone UK’s DriveGuard Tro­phy at Sandy Lodge Golf Club has set him up for a pos­si­ble round at the Pro-Am of the Bri­tish Mas­ters in Oc­to­ber, which will be sup­ported by broad­caster Sky Sports.

Pa­tel was ooz­ing with pride when he said: “It’s the best round of golf I’ve ever played. Ev­ery­thing went right. It was a per­fect day for golf – the sun was blaz­ing!”

Fol­low­ing his vic­tory, Pa­tel will com­pete in a re­gional fi­nal, fol­lowed by a Chal­lenge Tour event at Heythrop Park, in Ox­ford­shire.

Should he be part of the suc­cess­ful win­ning team there he will go on to play in the Pro-AM of the Bri­tish Mas­ters at The Grove in the au­tumn, when he will ac­com­pany a star name of the sport.

The op­por­tu­nity and com­pe­ti­tions are part of Bridge­stone’s new golf spon­sor­ship, which looks to raise the pro­file of cer­tain events and con­nect with the grass-roots level of the sport.

Pa­tel’s suc­cess is tes­ta­ment to the af­fect the spon­sor­ship is hav­ing and he now hopes that he can re­alise his dream of play­ing along­side Eng­land’s US Open win­ner Justin Rose.
