FIRSTPLUS Wales Seniors Open to offer £500,000 Prize Fund
Wales will host its third high-profile golfing tournament of 2006 following news that the FIRSTPLUS Wales Seniors Open at the Vale Hotel, Golf & Spa Resort, near Cardiff, from June 16-18, will carry a prize fund of £500,000, making it the second most lucrative event on the European Seniors Tour Schedule. The tournament, which will be played over 54 holes on the challenging Wales National Course, is expected to attract one of the strongest Seniors fields of the year with Carl Mason of England the defending champion.
Mason Bids to be Man in a Million in Wales
Carl Mason will be chasing the second biggest first prize on the 2006 European Seniors Tour – and along with it the chance to reach the milestone of €1 million in career earnings - when he defends his title at this week’s FIRSTPLUS Wales Seniors Open at the Vale Hotel, Golf and Spa Resort near Cardiff.
Mason: A Man in a Million?
Defending champion Carl Mason has spent two days familiarising himself with the sometimes deceiving lines of the Wales National Course as he bids to become the quickest player – and only the third ever - to break through the €1m mark in European Seniors Tour earnings.
Russell has Grounds to be a Success at The Vale
On a day when many of the field found their feet were made of Glamorgan clay, David J Russell stood firm with a round of three under par 69 to lead the £500,000 FIRSTPLUS Wales Seniors Open at The Vale Hotel, Golf & Spa Resort. The Englishman is one stroke clear of compatriot Martin Poxon and Spanish former Ryder Cup player José Rivero on a truly international leaderboard that also features Zimbabwe’s Tony Johnstone and Frenchman Gery Watine on one under par.
Russell Dreams of Maiden Title in Wales
David J Russell will sleep soundly after strengthening his grip on the £500,000 FIRSTPLUS Wales Seniors Open at The Vale Hotel, Golf & Spa Resort, but the same probably can’t be said of Martin Poxon. The two Englishmen had been locked at the top of the leaderboard before the previously impressive Poxon suffered the stuff of nightmares by making ten at the treacherous 12th hole.
