Golding secures Tour win with Honma clubs


Englishman Phil Golding played Honma to clinch the weekend’s French Riviera Masters by four shots at the Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort.

Golding’s third Tour victory on French soil is his first with Honma since switching to the prestigious Japanese brand in May 2014.

Yesterday’s victory elevates Golding to 5th on the Senior Tour Order Of Merit, with over 164,000 Euros. He trails another Englishman, Barry Lane, by just 14,000 Euros in the battle for fourth place.

“The feedback I get from my Honma clubs is superb” said the 52 year old from Bushey in Hertfordshire. “I have gained 6-7 yards with the irons, which is half a club, and with the new technology they are building into these clubs, the feel and touch I am getting is just incredible. 

“I use a gold coloured Honma driver which attracts a lot of attention, as you’d expect! But it is a winning club, which is what matters. I am definitely playing more confidently with my new Honmas, and have had a string of good results with them this summer.”

In September, again playing Honma, Golding and Bernhard Langer tied for second place at the WINSTONgolf Senior Open in Germany in a three-way playoff which also featured eventual winner Paul Wesselingh.

Golding’s French Riviera Masters victory makes him the only golfer in history to win a hat-trick of French events on the three different main Tours: the European Tour, the European Seniors Tour and the European Challenge Tour. He was also only the second golfer in history to win on all three different European Tours, after Italian golfer Costantino Rocca.

Englishman Philip Golding admits he cannot wait for the new European Senior Tour season to get underway after offering a tantalising glimpse in 2012 of what he can achieve.

Golding made his debut in The Senior Open Championship Presented by Rolex, finishing in a respectable tied 35th position at Turnberry, before twice coming agonisingly close to claiming a maiden title, first in Scotland and then in Wales.

The 50 year old carded back-to-back 64s at the weekend in the SSE Scottish Senior Open at Fairmont St Andrews as he finished one shot behind Swede Anders Forsbrand, and then opened with another 64 in the Speedy Services Wales Senior Open the following week.

It was the first time a hat-trick of 64s had been achieved on The European, Senior or Challenge Tours, but Golding again had to settle for second place at Conwy (Caernarvonshire) Golf Club after Barry Lane beat him to the title by one stroke.

While he could not replicate those impressive performances in the latter part of the season, eventually finishing in 17th position on the Order of Merit, Golding showed enough quality in his debut season to suggest that success may not be too far away.

“It was a pretty pleasing first season,” said Golding. “I only played seven events, but I had those two second places in Wales and in Scotland.

“Looking back at Wales, I had a good opportunity there, when I was leading going into the final round, and in Scotland I had two 64s, which were course records.

“So there was some good stuff. I got the putter working those weeks which was the difference. I didn’t play that well towards the end of the season as I had a few issues with my set up, but I can work on that.”

It is ten years since Golding claimed his sole European Tour victory in the 2003 Open de France, and after spending the majority of the winter practising in warmer climes than his homeland, he is raring to start afresh at the US Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid.

“I like to go away as much as I can during the winter and keep busy,” he said. “I’m looking forward to the new season though. If I can get up there a few times, who knows. My goal was always to win an event on the Senior Tour and hopefully I can do that. I can’t wait to get going again.”
