Three-time European Tour winner Phillip Price has been crowned the 2022 Farmfoods’ British Par 3 champion after coming through a play-off at Nailcote Hall in Warwickshire.

The 55-year-old Welshman, who played in the 2002 Ryder Cup, picked up the coveted title and the £50,000 first prize after beating Sunningdale Golf Club PGA Professional Tom Reid in a play-off.

Both players finished tied on 101 (7-under), forcing the tournament into over-time before Price secured the win at the second extra hole.

Buzzing off the back of his spectacular win, Price said: “I was fortunate to win the play off really, as Tom gave it to me a bit, but I’ve got a beautiful trophy, a wheelbarrow full of cash and a happy family!”

This year’s trophy was a replica of Tony Jacklin, in honour of him hosting the tournament this year.

Played in extremely hot conditions, and with the greens firming up throughout the week, Nailcote’s par-3 course proved a real challenge to the 62-strong professional field, with only nine players managing to finish under par. Matt Cort took third place on six under, and then there was a three-shot gap to fourth, which saw a three-way tie between Fraser Mann, Clark Dennis and 1999 Open champion Paul Lawrie.

Attracting a host of stars from across the professional game, Ian Woosnam finished in a share of tenth with Simon Khan, Costantino Rocca and Gary Wolstenholme, while Charley Hull was the highest placed of a strong female contingent, finishing on +4 in tied 20th.

Reid enjoyed better luck in the Pro-Am team event, combining with Jack Mahony to win with a score of 95 points and 13 under par.

The first two days of the championship included three holes-in-one, with Steve Bennett securing his ace on the 12th, John Corrie coming at the 16th, and Allan Evans bagging his one-shotter at the 15th.
