Coxmoor Gold Club’s Greg Owen returned his best finish of the year so far in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro Am last week, finishing with a welcome top 10 finish.
Tied in ninth place was his best PGA Tour result since a 15th place finish in the The Barclays in 2009.
The Pebble Beach event has been a happy hunting ground for Owen since he joined the PGA Tour 2005, having already returned third and fourth place finishes.
Opening with a 68 at Spyglass Hill, he followed up with a three-under-par 67 at Monterey Peninsula to reach the halfway stage on seven under par.
In the third round he carded a level par 72 to keep in the hunt, and with three birdies in the opening seven holes of the final round he started to climb the leaderboard.
But he dropped a shot at the ninth and, after a level par inward nine, he failed to improve, leaving him stuck on a nine under par total of 277.
In Oakmere Park’s Golfer of the Winter Round Six, played the day before the snow and ice arrived, Ujagar Sandhu and Richard Lammin took the top spot with 43 points.
That was two points clear of runners-up Neil Gouldby and Richard Hines, who took second on the back nine from Sanjeev Sandhu and Andrew Hodgkinson, with the fourth place going to Andrew Hall and Walter Hollinsworth on 40 points.
Tony Hunt won the February Stableford, played in very tricky conditions, with 32 points with Phil Tryner taking second after a countback from Bobby McDonald, both with 31 points.
