Top city golfer Stuart Brown has been in good form of late on the East PGA circuit.
The Orton Meadows professional claimed third place on a wet and windy day in the Pavenham Park Pro-Am with a round of 74 - two over par - and two shots behind winner James Jankowski.
Then in the Hertfordshire Golf Club Pro-Am he shot a cracking two-under-par 68 for a sixth-place finish. He hit three birdies on the front nine and dropped a shot on the 18th. Paul Hetherington from Great Hadham Golf & Country Club won this one with a 66.
Two of Greetham Valley’s bright young stars, Ellie and Izzy Haughton, played in the Lincs Junior County Championships at Woodhall Spa over the weekend and acquitted themselves very well.
Izzy won the Under 14 title while sister Ellie just missed out by two shots in the Under 16 category. Ellie was, however, awarded the trophy for the most improved junior.
Tom Smith and his Gedney Hill PGA Professional Kerr Page are one step away from following in the footsteps of Europe’s Ryder Cup heroes with an appearance in the Lombard Trophy final at Gleneagles.
Smith teed up a chance to tread the fairways of the PGA Centenary Course, venue for the dramatic matchplay win over the United States last year, between September 1-2 when he won his club qualifying competition with a score of 44 points.
He and Page now advance to the regional final at King’s Lynn Golf Club on July 16, where they will compete against up to 70 other clubs for the chance to secure one of 16 prized spots available for the 36-hole grand final.
Smith (28) lives in Spalding and plays off a handicap of 10 while Page (31) has been a professional at Gedney Hill for eight years.
