Cormac Sharvin has won the Brabazon Trophy, supported by Your Golf Travel, and his fellow countrymen also claimed second place and a share of third. Sharvin finished on seven-under par at Notts. Golf Club, a stroke ahead of Gavin Moynihan, who closed with six-under par 66, and three ahead of Jack Hume, Lancashire’s Paul Kinnear and American Charlie Danielson.
Sharvin, 22, had one big slice of luck as he pinned down the biggest win of his career. He needed a par four on the last to clinch the title and his seven-iron second shot sailed over the green, hit the clubhouse wall and rebounded round a sponsor’s board before finishing close to the green.
From there he chipped up to about a foot and holed out for the win.
The win strengthens Sharvin’s claim for a place in the GB&I Walker Cup team for this September’s match. He commented, “It means the world to get over the line. I have given myself so many chances this year and it’s great to get it done.”
