Harding wins first British Minigolf Association Tour event of the season at Adventure Island Mini Golf, Star City, Birmingham

The 2012 British Minigolf Association season got underway with the BMGA Star City Open on Sunday 22nd January at the indoor Adventure Island Mini Golf complex at Star City, Birmingham. The three-round, 54-hole tournament was won by Birmingham’s Chris Harding following a sudden-death play-off against defending champion Michael Smith.

The top three places were all decided by sudden-death play-offs, as Harding & Smith had both finished regulation play on scores of 90(-18). Harding managed to defeat Smith with a hole-in-one at the fourth extra-hole.

In the battle for third place Linton’s Adam Kelly defeated Cambridge’s James Rutherford in the play-off after both players had scored 93(-15) over their three rounds.

31 British Minigolf Association (BMGA) Tour players competed in the event on the 18-hole indoor Lost Hut Trail Adventure Mini Golf course.

Other prize winners on the day were James Trubridge, who took the Category 2 Player winner’s prize, with Freddie Blackburn Shaw second and Ruth Burke third. In the Category 3 (Novice) contest Marina Breeden took first place with Richard Linden the runner-up. Seth Thomas won the junior title with Owen Johnson runner-up. The Aces Champion was Marc Chapman with 17 holes-in-one across the competition.

BMGA Chairman Sean Homer said “Thanks to all who played at the event, and also to Marc Chapman who ran the event and John Whitehead and his team at the course for their superb hospitality. The BMGA Tour is looking forward to returning for the 2013 Star City Open next January.”
