Thorpe Wood professional Stuart Brown and playing partner Adam Pike from Brampton Park produced some sparkling golf in the big PGA Fourball East qualifying event at Bush Hill Park Golf Club.
But despite finishing eight under par with a cracking 62 they finished in fifth place, four shots behind Laurence Allen and Joel Saunders from the Verulam Golf Club.
They posted a highly impressive 12 under par round of 58 to top the leaderboard and book their place in the £33,000 BMW supported Fourball Championship final at Whittlebury Park in August along with 10 other regional qualifiers.
Brown and Pike reached the turn at two under par and then enjoyed a birdie blitz on the back nine picking up shots at the 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th.
Teddy Crooke won the Burghley Park Junior Club Championship with a round of 87-15=72.
Tommy Johnson was second on 101-22=79 and George Holloway third with 109-30=79.
It wasn’t just the weather that was scorching at March Golf Club at the weekend, the golf was pretty hot too.
Gary Brinn carded a blistering net 64 in the first round of the club championship to set himself up for victory. He finished with a 36-hole 138 total to become handicap champion.
Gary Neugebauer became club champion with a gross total of 155.
Greetham Valley’s Ellie Haughton won the Lincolnshire Girls Championship at Waltham Woods.
The 17 year-old five-handicapper scored an impressive gross 77 to win by seven shots from her nearest competitor, who was playing off seven.
It continued a very successful month for Ellie following wins in the adult and junior Open and ladies June Medal.
