Jason leads the way at Hesketh

JASON Shufflebottom completed a memorable start to the season by winning the PGA Assistants’ Championship North qualifying round at Hesketh Golf Club.
The Prestatyn-based Denbigh  man posted a one-under 68 to edge out Matthew Dunbabin (Sandiway), Calum Hey (Shipley) and Nick Tibbetts (Carlisle).
They will join 15 other qualifiers at the £32,000, Birdietime-supported, grand final at Farleigh Golf Club, Surrey, on  July 3-5.
But the victory came after the 29-year-old had been named as a junior ambassador for the Flintshire Golf Union.
“They approached me to work as an ambassador a few months ago and now it’s all been passed, so I’m looking forward to doing some work with the juniors and inspiring a bit more success in North Wales.
“I’m very fortunate to be in a positive environment with good coaching practices.”
Shufflebottom is a former Wales amateur International who studied in the USA before deciding to take the PGA route.
“It’s a big bad world out there, but I decided that if I couldn’t play for a living, I’d like to help others improve and my goal is to go for a coaching role. The PGA course gives me the chance to play as well.”
Shufflebottom said he was fortunate with the draw at Hesketh.
“I was first out and we played the first six holes with no wind, then it picked up a little bit,” he said.
