Roland Turner leaps over the A Flight members to go from the 4th ranked player to number 1. With his wire to wire win at The British Open on the extremely difficult Wildcat Highlands course. Roland's win was very impressive, he basically wheeled his putter to a near record-breaking performance. His 25 putts were one shy of the League record. Roland picked up 10 points with the major win and moved up to second on the money list giving him just enough points to over-take Rannel Calixterio for the top spot. Roland had to battle off 4 very good players to become the champ. First, was Vincent Gilmore who actually had the audacity to sit in the Captain's chair for the past few weeks. A 41, 41 doesn't hold your spot in the chair. Next up was the only league Hall of Famer Jaime Villarreal who was playing very well and was in a position to finish at least in the money, but his purse string was cut going 5 over on the last 3 holes giving him a moneyless 4th place finish. The last two were teammates of the Captain in the 2015 and 2016 Culture Cup, David Knowles and now healthy Robert Dangerfield. Both played well but Captain Roland was on a mission to get his chair back. Kudos to Roland James T. Kirk Turner you are the 2018 British Open Champion.
Well, this one had to sting, Jon Brazeal had this tournament in the bag it was game over. They were putting Jon's name on the trophy. Jon was fresh off of the U.S. Open victory and by all practical propose, he would be the British Open Champion also. Jon was up 5 strokes standing on the 17 tee box. All of a sudden it started to snow, yes snow and by the time Jon's ball hit the bottom of the cup on 17 he had made a snowman and found himself only up two shots over Jayme Gonzalez. Jon bogeyed 18 like just about everybody else in the field. But not everybody, not Jayme Gonzalez the 2014 Player Champion and Player of the Year Runner-Up. Jayme made a big-time birdie on 18 to send the match into sudden death. Starting on hole 18 they would play until the player with the best score would win, and that player would be Jayme Gonzalez. Congratulations, Jayme, on a great come back!
