Mason Shows Midas Touch to Claim Hat-Trick
England’s Carl Mason achieved a major milestone when he closed with a battling one under par 71 to win the Midas Group English Seniors Open over the Jack Nicklaus course at St Mellion International in Cornwall. Mason won the English Seniors title in both 2003 and 2004 and after a year’s hiatus he made it three wins in a row with a four under par 54-hole aggregate of 212 that saw him finish one shot ahead of Australia’s Stewart Ginn.
