JACK Davidson has his sights set on further success after strolling to victory in the Welsh Amateur Championship at Aberdovey, writes Jay Bayford.

The Llanwern star added another title to his growing trophy cabinet following a truly dominant display against Vale Resort’s Tim Harry to record one of the biggest final victories in recent times.

He won two of the first four holes to take control early on and never looked back.

Harry brought it back to one hole after the eighth but Davidson then hit a purple patch to go five-up at the halfway point.

It was Davidson’s title to lose at this point and he never looked like collapsing as he continued to edge further ahead.

And after four birdies on the bounce, Davidson sealed a mammoth 8&7 victory.

“I guess when you are five-up through 18 there is a lot of work for the other person to do,” Davidson said.

“But going out in the second 18 and not really losing any balls it was hard for Tim to try and get back in the match.”

His triumph was made all the more impressive after knocking out two former champions on his way to the final.

He beat Gwent rival Theo Baker (Celtic Manor) 6&5 in the first round of match play to set-up a second-round clash with reigning champion Zach Galliford (Borth & Ynyslas).

And after a tight game, Davidson went on to a record a 3&2 win.

He recorded the same scoreline over Shaun Harpin (Rhos-on-Sea) before seeing off 2014 champion Evan Griffith (Conwy) by two holes in the semi-finals.

The Welsh Amateur Championship is the third elite amateur championship win of 2017 for Davidson following success in the Spanish International Amateur Championship and the European Nations Cup, but he views his victory at Aberdovey just as highly.

“The field wasn’t as strong as the ones I’ve won previously,” he said. “But winning the Welsh Amateur is your home championship so it’s always what you want to do.

“It came at a very important time for me so it definitely ranks up there as one of the best.”

After winning his latest trophy, Davidson is hoping that will be enough for him to be included in this year’s Walker Cup team.

He was named in the initial 21-man squad but that will be whittled down later this month.

“You never really know what the selectors are thinking,” Davidson added. “They can only take 10 and I guess everyone who gets selected deserves their spot.”
