Ben Clayton wins Cleveland Golf/Srixon Invitational
September 9, 2011

Hindhead Golf Club assistant professional and Cleveland Golf/Srixon Short Game Ambassador Ben Clayton sealed his 17th professional career win with victory in the 2011 Cleveland Golf/Srixon Invitational held at the Fairmont St Andrews. Clayton shot a 36 hole total of six under par to clinch the title by a solitary stroke and take home the £ 2000 first prize as well as a Tag Heuer watch.

The main event, in its fourth year and put on by Cleveland Golf / Srixon to reward loyal account holders, had a pairs format allowing each pro to treat one club member to two competitive rounds the home of golf with the best stableford score from the pair counting on each hole.

Played just a few days before the Cleveland Golf/Srixon Seniors Scottish Open the event had a real tournament feel to it with the course set up to tour standard, the grandstand and the tented village fully erect, live scoreboards in full operation, sponsors banners based around the course and accommodation provided by one of the most exclusive hotels in Scotland.

After his victory Clayton said: "Winning this event is a real wonderful feeling. It is an event that many people want to play in and the fact that I have also won in St Andrews makes it extra special. I got off to a tough start this morning and had some shaky holes along the way but was proud about how I managed to come back with a birdie at the 18 th to win. Hopefully I can keep this form up throughout the rest of the summer."
