02 Oct Fred Hirst Final – Fieldens Top The Field
One of the major positives this year for TGC has been the new members. And now a third major will have one of their names on and, to be precise, we know the name already. “Fielden” will be the surname but preceding that will be etched either “Bobby” or “Dan”. Brothers Bobby and Dan face each other in the final after coming through 5 and 4 rounds respectively.
So who will take the crown in the battle of the brothers? Bobby had to come through an extra round beating the experience of Al Stobbs as well as current champion Matty Saxon and Presidents Prize Champ of 2019 Ryan Gaffney. The in form Steve Hill was edged out in the semi to see Bobby through with victory on the last hole
Dan had a game less but they still didn’t come any easier. With Victories against Chris Hartley, the experienced Andrew Lupton and pretender to the Buck Rabbit crown Craig Vest it was down to a semi final versus Lee Earnshaw. Lee was on fire at the time, beating some of the best along his way, but Dan still had too much in the tank and set up a final family clash.
