Jack Cope produced some fireworks to claim the St Andrews Trophy over the weekend. Jack finished eight under par 280 along with Robin Williams and George Burns but won at the fourth extra hole (the 18th) after driving the green pin high to twenty feet . After an opening 73 on the Jubillee course which many regard as the most difficult of the six courses at the home of golf. Jack played the afternoon room in 70 on the Old to be one under at the cut and six adrift of Charlie Thornton. Another morning 70 and an afternoon 67 put Jack in the three man play off.
Speaking to the tournament organisers Jack said “I was committed to every shot I hit out there over those four holes. I probably played the best I played all week tee to green. I guess that was a nice time to really peak. I love the home of golf. I particularly like the Old Course, mainly because I normally score alright round there which helps. Just walking over that bridge, taking photos, thinking about all the players who have won here and played here. This is very special to me.”
