The 57 year-old professional from the Summit Golf Club in Toronto earned his first victory in three years on the European Seniors Tour with an astonishing opening five holes over the undulating Welcombe Hotel course at Stratford upon Avon.

He covered them in six under par with an eagle three and four birdies and from four behind overnight he was suddenly in front at seven under.

Hardwick finished on eight under par 202, two better than Italian Renato Campagnoli (68) and England’s David Creamer who birdied the last two holes for his 69 and fourth runners-up cheque since joining the Tour six years ago.

Campagnoli produced his own spectacular move with a hole in one with a six iron at the 164-yard fourth. It gave him a temporary one shot lead at eight under but he failed to hold onto his advantage.

“I’ve never had a burst like that before,” said Hardwick who became a grandfather ten weeks ago. “The eagle three at the second really got me going. I reckon my four iron second from the bank of a bunker to three feet was the best shot I’ve ever hit. It’s been a great Fathers Day for me.”

The final stages watched by a crowd of 4,000 in perfect, sunny conditions at the picturesque setting, was always close. As the turn was approached by the leading groups only two shots separated seven players, with Hardwick holding off the chasing pack at eight under.

South Staff’s Jim Rhodes, overnight leader at five under with Barry Sandry and Creamer, battled gamely on his ‘home from home’ Midland course and earned £4,376 alongside Maurice Bembridge (69) and American Bill Brask (68).

Tony Jacklin, ending a four-tournament visit to Europe, posted a last round 75 to finish in the pack on two over par, before returning to play three tournaments on the US Seniors Tour.

José Maria Cañizares failed to acclimatise to the testing layout following his arrival from America. The former Ryder Cup star, who was playing the first of a planned four tournaments in Europe, closed with a 75.
