ANOTHER TITLE: Michael Watson

ANOTHER TITLE: Michael Watson

First published in Sport

MICHAEL Watson continued his domination of tournaments in July by claiming the Remedy Oak Pro-Am for the second time in three years to register his sixth win in 21 days this month.

The Wessex Golf Centre professional’s six-under-par 66 was two lower than the return made by his best pal Martyn Thompson (Parkstone) who was a late replacement for home director of golf Nigel Tokely who withdrew because of a wrist injury.

The Weymouth star birdied the second hole and then made two three-birdie burst from the sixth and 15th, dropping his only shot at the 483-yard par four 14th.

Watson who heads the Order of Merit also extended his total on the money list to £10,940, averaging £341 at each event.

So far this month he has banked £6,659 for an 11-tournament average of £605.

It was his seventh win this season and he has only failed to win five of his first 11 outings this month.

He clearly starts as favourite in the fifth Order of Merit tournament – the Forest Classic in the Forest of Dean tomorrow and Monday.

Watson also won the team prize with Pat Michael, William Burke and Richard Matthews on 10-under-par 132.
