Two-time PGA EuroPro Tour winner Andrew Marshall has scooped the Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship after a dramatic day of play at Nailcote Hall.

Scooping the €50,000 first prize, Marshall finished ahead two-time European Tour winner Mark Mouland and Australian Peter Fowler, with a score of -7 (101 Total).

Battling against the elements, Marshall was able to fend off the challenge of previous 2019 winner Jarmo Sandelin, with Paul Lawrie OBE and Gary Wolstenholme MBE also finishing highly in joint 6th position.

Commenting on his win, Marshall said: “I’ve been watching this tournament for a long time.”

“I’ve finished second in some of the prior years, but being a bit of a short game expert, I’ve been long hoping to be up there with the likes of Lane, Lawrie and Jarmo.

“Hit the green, make a three, that was my plan really, and I’ve ended up winning – I’m delighted to take home the title.”

Elsewhere, pro Tyler Hogarty and James Elston scooped the team prize, with Wolstenholme and sports anchor John Inverdale finishing in runner up spots.

There was also success for Mouland and Peter Fowler in the Super Seniors pair event.

Furthermore, the spotlight was also on the highly-contested Norma C Herd trophy, which was taken by William Bailey, who finished ahead of footballing icons Alan McInally and Dean Ashton.

Focus now turns to the final day of play, where the second Celeb AM title will be up for grabs.
