At the 2023 British Mid- Amateur Championship which was contested at the Woodhall Spa Golf Club between May 30 and June 1, Abhishek Mitra of Hyderabad was placed third with a score of 234 (+17). Three hours north of London, at the Woodhall Spa Golf Course, three rounds of the competition were played.
More than 72 people attended the event which offered two courses. Bracken and Hotchin are the names of two 36-hole courses. On the list of the best 60 golf courses in the world, Hotchin is placed number 47. Abhishek Mitra was the only Indian to proceed to the British-Mid Amateur competition.
The Bracken course, which has wavy greens and dense rough, hosted the first round. With an even par score and a three-shot advantage after round one, Abhishek was in the lead of the competition. The second round commenced as soon as the first round's results were submitted.
Exhaustion set in for Abhishek, who was playing without a caddy, as the rain began to fall and the temperature dropped to almost four degrees. His grade was impacted by this.
On day two, the Hotchin course hosted the third round, where Abhishek improved from ninth place to tie for third with a total of 75-three-over. He needed just one more shot to get the winning point. He would have had a chance for a playoff if there had been a bridge at the par-five 18th hole. Instead, a putt from 18 feet out barely missed the cup, giving him a tied third-place finish. He will compete in the Scottish Mid-Amateur in Troon in September 2023 once more.
With a score of 233 England’s Darren Rix won the tournament. Due to Rix's better final-day score, Matt Peacock of Great Britain, who had the same score, came in second.
