The 50-year-old Englishman played a storming last round at the Royal Porthcawl Golf Club to finish five under par and collect the £37,500 prize money, beating home favourite Ian Woosman.

Winner of the Mauritius Open back in 1996, Golding returned to the island last year when he qualified to compete in the MCB Tour Championship, held at Constance Belle Mare Plage, for the first time.

On his current form we look forward to welcoming him back to Mauritius for the MCB Championship again this December.

Frenchman Marc Farry is bidding for a sentimental double at this week’s MCB Tour Championship as he attempts to win a second European Senior Tour event he has helped to organise. Farry has been attached to host venue Constance Belle Mare Plage for the past ten years and was instrumental in attracting the Senior Tour to Mauritius in December 2009 for the Mauritius Commercial Bank Open, which paved the way for the 2011 season-ending MCB Tour Championship.
