Matt Ford wins 66 Pro Tour event at Remedy Oak

Remedy Oak hosted the 66 Pro Tour Series where a playoff was the only way to separate eventual winner Matt Ford and Lee James after they both tied on stunning 69s

The stunning Remedy Oak golf course in Dorset played host to the 66 Pro Tour Series on Tuesday June 1 where Matt Ford was victorious, edging out Lee James in a playoff.

Challenge Tour stalwart James faced Ford in a playoff after both players carded 69s, setting a new course record, which had been held by Nick Dougherty since 2006.

The former PGA Assistants champion Ford sunk a 10-foot birdie putt at the par-3 ninth to defeat James.

After his round, Ford reflected on the 256-acre woodland gem, saying: "It was a great day, this venue is the best course I have played in a long time."

Nestled in the Horton woodland in Dorset, designed by John Jacobs in 2005, Remedy Oak offers both maturity and stature - unusual for such a young golf course - making it a worthy member of Golf Monthly's top 100 golf courses in the UK (opens in new tab).

Meanwhile, Order of Merit leader Daniel Gaunt had another good day, finishing in third place with a 2-under-par 70.
