George Mullins Records Back to Back WinsThe 2018 Jamega Pro Tour is well under way this season and ahead of the Essendon Challenge, there have been six tournaments played on the tour.
George Mullins headed to the Royal Ascot Cup on the 14th May on the back of some fantastic performances this season. Having produced a good performance in the Final Qualifying School to earn a place at many of the TP Tour tournaments, Mullins went on to win his second tournament.
The win came at the London Club following a tense playoff. Mullins has proved he has what it takes to place in pressure situations and delivered the goods again by holing a 20ft putt to win the tournament on the 18th hole.
Having tasted success at the London Club, thoughts quickly turned to the Jamega Pro Tour and the Royal Ascot Cup. This tournament was contested over two rounds at the Royal Ascot Golf Club on the 14th and 15th May.
In contrast to some of the dreadful weather conditions which has greeted Mullins at some events this year, the sun was out at Royal Ascot Golf Club ahead of what turned out to be a fabulous day of golf.
On the first day of play, it was Ben Amor who set the pace, leading in the clubhouse following a 7 under par 63. Mullins produced a fine round of his own to sit 3 shots behind at the half-way stage and there was all to play for on the second day.
Tom Shadbolt was the man to beat, as he entered the clubhouse on 6 under par following his second round. With other players on the leaderboard seemingly struggling to cope with the pressure of the second and final round, Mullins made his move.
A superb outward nine holes of 4 under par saw Mullins establish a lead but approaching the 15th hole, there was only one shot between him and the clubhouse leader. However, Mullins eased into the final three holes thanks to a well-timed birdie on the 15th, which opened a 2 shot lead.
However, golf has a nasty habit of throwing a spanner in the works and just as Mullins appeared to have the event in his hands, a bogey on the 17th hole meant he still required a par on the 18th to seal the victory. There was huge tension around the course and knowing you need a par on the final hole to win can have a huge impact psychologically.
Do you play it safe and aim for a par or do you play the hole as you normally would to try and claim a birdie? Decision making is key in these situations and Mullins produced when it mattered most, finishing with a par to win the Royal Ascot Cup.
It was the second tournament win for Mullins and to see out the victory with a par on the final hole, having dropped a shot on the previous hole showed tremendous character. Many professional golfers have gone to pieces on the final hole when the tournament was at stake but Mullins kept calm.
Having won the Royal Ascot Cup, it was on to Stock Brook Golf and Country Club for the Stock Brook Manner Cup.
Having won at Ascot, it was always going to be difficult for Mullins to raise his game. Despite not being at his best, the 21-year-old still managed to finish T15 at the end of the two rounds, recording a final score of 1 under par for the tournament.
While this was a disappointing result, Mullins, who did not play to his full potential, received good news regarding the Euro Pro Tour. Mullins was selected to play in the Matchroom Sport Championship at Harleyford Golf Club. The event took place across 3 days between Wednesday 30th May and Friday 1st June.
This was the first Euro Pro Tour event of the year for Mullins and making the cut was the priority in an event which featured some fantastic golfers and a total prize fund of just over £50,000.
Having completed the first round with a score of 71, 1 under par, there was no guarantee Mullins was going to make the cut. However, a brilliant 4 under par in the second round, including four birdies on the back nine holes saw Mullins make the cut without any difficulty.
The final round was always going to be tough with the level of competition after the cut. Mullins continued where he left off in the second round to record 2 under par and finish T20 for the tournament, on 7 under par.
Mullins was very happy with his performance across the three days and speaking after the event Mullins said, "I played well, it's a good stepping stone. I am playing really well at the moment, just need to keep going," before continuing, "For the first Euro Pro of the year, that's pretty good and I should be playing on that (Euro Pro Tour) for most of the season."
The closing statement is perhaps the most important of all and a place on many of the Euro Pro events would be a great way to spend the season. Mullins will be playing at the next Euro Pro Tour event, which is the PDC Golf Championship at Studley Wood before flying to Portugal to meet with his coach.
2018 promised much for Mullins and it appears to be delivering on that promise. The young Englishman looks good on the course and sounds confident about his golf. This has the makings of a season to remember.
