Robinson wins first pro title

SOUTHPORT & Ainsdale’s James Robinson won his second PGA EuroPro Tour title after a fina lround 71 for a 12-under-par total in in the Buildbase Open at Frilford Heath.



The 25-year-old former Lancashire County player won as an amateur at Slaley Hall in 2010 but this time is able to take home the £10,000 winner’s prize along with a brand new Motocaddy trolley and a Shotsaver range finder.

Robinson  had broken the course record with a 63 in his opening round, carded a 70 for the second and then fended off the challenge of Jack Colegate with a 71 for his final round.

Robinson and Colegate had exchanged the lead several times in the afternoon, but an birdie at 14 and an eagle three on the 15th saw the Lancastrian  move two clear for the first time in the final round.

“It is a big confidence boost. I felt a little bit of pressure because I knew I could shoot nine under but I stayed patient, stuck to my routine and played solid golf. “It helps for the Order of Merit and of course the top five is where I have always wanted to be, so hopefully I can push on and get on to the Challenge Tour but I will have to keep playing well because the standard is so good on the EuroPro.”
