Leigh duo just miss out on Morocco challenge

LONG serving Leigh professional Andrew Baguley and amateur partner John Taylor finished a commendable joint third in the SkyCaddie PGA Pro-Captain Challenge in Morocco.

Winners were Lincolnshire duo Paul Bradshaw and retired GP Chris Hall who found the perfect antidote to combat the challenge of Moor Hall whose score was matched by Leigh.

It came in the form of a birdie-laden and bogey-free negotiation of the Gary Player-designed course at Mazagan Beach and Golf Resort that resulted in a comfortable victory for the pair from Holme Hall, Lincolnshire, who tied with Leigh.

They had begun the second and final round of the stableford format event a point adrift of their PGA Midland region rivals and tournament leaders, Moor Hall’s Cameron Clark and his club captain Paul Brindley.

Come half way the deficit had been erased then, with the duo from Sutton Coldfield seemingly becalmed, they posted four birdies for a total score of 85 and victory by three points.

The last of those birdies, was recorded at the par five 18th by Mills, a 20-handicapper who looked anything but as his chip and run came to rest inches from the hole for a tap-in.

It was a fitting way to win the tournament that, supported by Golfplan Insurance, carries a £22,000 prize fund of which £5,000 goes to the winning pro.
