You Tube ace Rick puts himself in the picture

YOU Tube sensation Rick Shiels has qualified for the Titleist & FootJoy PGA Professional Championship final at his first attempt.



And the Manchester PGA pro, who works at Quest Studio based at Lytham Golf Academy, is recreating his round online after finishing joint second at Delamere Forest Golf Club behind a six way tie for the top of the leaderboard.

Shiels is a new breed of golfer who has built up a huge following on his own internet channel which offers coaching tips and his story of trying to qualify for this year’s Open.

But for now the Golf Monthly top 25 coach will join 13 other qualifiers at the £78,000 showpiece final being held The Oxfordshire course between July 26-29.

Curtis Dean (Blackpool North Shore), Craig Corrigan  (Chilli Dip Golf Academy), Simon Robinson (Sharpley), Simon Lucas  (Ashton Golf Centre), Graham Cox (Lymm), Philip Waugh  (Brampton) and Barry Taylor  (Clarkes Golf Centre) all shared the top of the leaderboard after carding one under par rounds of 71 at the Cheshire venue.
