New PGA North series off to flying start

THE first event in a new venture instigated by PGA North to promote a golf union throughout the whole region swung into action with more than 40 professionals battling for honours at Huddersfield club Crosland Heath.

Four players shared the spoils on one-under-par 70 after favourite Phil Archer looked on course to claim the honours until two late bogeys pegged him back.

In the mix were Jason Proctor, representing Sheffield-based Indoor Golf Academy, Davyhulme Park’s Michael Lane and Lee Rooke from Harlech club Royal St David’s There was a healthy representation of players from most parts of the biggest region of the country outside Scotland and with 11 fixtures all told there’s a lot to play for.

PGA North tournament director Andrew Chadwick: “We’ve got off to a positive start and we are confident the number of players will grow between now and the final event at Fulford Golf Club in October.”

Meanwhile, the next event is at Bolton Old Links Golf Club on April 9.
