Having had a rain delayed start the MCB Tour Championship ran seamlessly and ended in an exciting crescendo on day three.
Hot out the blocks on day one was Phillip Price shooting a superb eight under par 64.
Day two followed with a jockeying of positions and a number of big names rising to the top of the leader board.
Frost, Montgomerie and Price all finishing at nine under par. Lane repeated his five under par, from day one, to finish with a 10 under par total. Fellow Englishman Paul Broadhurst equalled his 10 under with an impressive seven under par 65 seeing him move from ninth to first on the leader board.
Day three saw a number of big names falling away with Frost shooting a 1 over 73 and out of contention.
Montgomerie saw his chances slip away with two double bogey’s leaving him on a 12 under par total. Broadurst fought hard,
with an eagle on the last to leave him one short of eventual winner.
Lane with a birdie on the last saw him sign for a 14 under par total and his first win at the tournament.
Winner of the John Jacobs Trophy was Paul Broadhurst. 2016 saw him having a number of good finishes including a second at the SSE Enterprise Wales Senior Open and a win at the Senior Open Championship at Carnoustie. The win at Carnoustie cemented his position at the top of the order of merit and he received the trophy at the prize giving of the MCB Tour Championship.
Constance Belle Mare Plage and the Legend course bids the European Seniors tour farewell until next year.
