It was without doubt the best and most successful Farm Foods British Par 3 to date, with record crowds and a superb cast of top professionals and celebrities competing.

Tommy Fleetwood has won this year's British Par 3 Championship hosted at Nailcote Hall. The European tour star finished with a score of -4 and left with a cheque for £25,000 after two days of intense competition.

The annual four day tournament celebrated its 80th anniversary this year as the crowds enjoyed four days of entertaining competition and excellence at Nailcote Hall. This highly anticipated event welcomed professional golfers and celebrities alike, with the likes of Len Goodman and Jasper Carrott stepping up to the tee.

Record numbers of spectators came to watch the world's leading par 3 Championship as Nailcote Hall unveiled the Ryder Cup Captains, tournament host Tony Jacklin CBE, Ryder Cup Legend Sam Torrance OBE and Masters winner Ian Woosnam OBE.

Nailcote Hall also hosted three gala balls all in aid of Midlands charity: Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People. The three evenings included entertainment from 'Groove Nation', the ‘Upbeat Beatles’, mind reader and illusionist Graham Jolley and a rather candid discussion from Jacklin, Torrance and Woosnam about their highly respected careers.

It was the win of 22-year-old Tommy Fleetwood that really drew in the crowds on the second day of competition. His bogey on the final hole saw him finish on -4, just ahead of Paul Broadhurst who was unable to get the birdie he needed to level the scores.

Rick Cressman, Owner of Nailcote Hall, said: “It was without doubt the best and most successful Farm foods British Par 3 to date, with record crowds and a superb cast of top professionals and celebrities competing. It was really very special to have three past Ryder cub captains in Tony Jacklin, Ian Woosnam and Sam Torrence all present. The winner of the tournament Tommy Fleetwood put on a fabulous show to win.”

“I'm sure that everyone who enjoyed the event this year will want to come back and see lots more next year from August 5th to August 8th 2014 when we will also be celebrating Tony Jacklin's 70th birthday.”
