Golf News – Woosnam Looks to Home Success

Welsh senior Ian Woosnam is looking to clinch two consecutive wins having just taken the title in the Parkridge Polish Seniors Championship and with the Ryder Cup Wales Seniors Open approaching this weekend.  Indeed, Woosnam is coming home in positive spirits as his stroke play victory in Poland was his first for over a decade, after winning the PGA Championship in 1997. Woosnam became part of the European Seniors Tour on turning 50 this spring, having previously captained a win for the European team in the 2006 Ryder Cup. His career in golf began in Wales as an amateur and evolved into a series of European Tours, including a renowned triumph at the August National Master Tournament back in 1991.

Back to the present, his next stop is the Conwy Golf Course in northern Wales with a new determination to win the Ryder Cup Senior Open. According to reports Woosnam has said to be looking forward to this tournament more than ever as he was never able to take a trophy at his national Open before going senior. The Oswestry-born player also described his recent win in Poland as fantastic and is excited at the chance to take back-to-back wins at the upcoming event at Conwy, understandably as the tournament has the second biggest prize fund on the Senior Tour.

There will also undoubtedly be an element of nostalgia felt this weekend as Woosnam played the same course during his years as a developing amateur. However, it is not going to be a walk in the park as once again Woosnam will be confronted by long-term rival Sandy Lyle of Scotland, who is also in a bid for part of the £500,000 prize fund. The two have also played together as Lyle was an Assistant Captain of the successful Ryder Cup team in Ireland two years ago. Back to this event, Woosnam’s main rival is set to be last year’s winner Carl Manson, who also took the £75,000 first prize in 2005.
