Last hole misery for golfer Simon Dyson
10:43am Friday 30th August 2013 in Sport
FIVE days after his last hole anguish in the third round of the Johnnie Walker Championships in Scotland, York’s Simon Dyson suffered a crippling conclusion at the outset of the Wales Open.
At one point in yesterday’s first round, the world number 168 was tied for 15th place after negotiating the first 12 holes at Celtic Manor at one-under courtesy of a birdie at the par-five second.
But an inward nine that featured dropped shots on 13, 15 and 17 worsened hellishly.In an eerie echo of his Saturday misery at Gleneagles, where a bizarre ruling accorded him a two-shot penalty for a nine on the par-five last, Dyson this time carded a triple bogey yesterday at the par-five 18th.
Indeed, that 18th-hole collapse left Dyson no fewer than 12 shots adrift of Norwegian rookie pro Espen Kofstad, who led the field by two clear shots.
Knaresborough-born John Parry was tied for 27th spot after a level-par 72 was notched by the Harrogate GC player.
