Stage two of the UK Tour 2017 and we head up to Bradford for the inaugural West Yorkshire Open. With a guaranteed £3700 prize pot thanks to a number of generous sponsors – including £2000 for the winner – places went pretty quickly, and ultimately 77 players in the main tournament did battle over the weekend. Sadly three places were no-shows, a bit disappointing considering the effort that went into creating a great weekend.
Saturday featured a very full day of play with six 7-point rounds in Swiss format to produce a final 28 for the Sunday’s knockout. Many congratulations to Main winner Kevin Jones, shown above (seated left) in the 11-point final with Steve Bibby.
