It’s first time lucky for Palmer

CHORLEY assistant  Andy Palmer won the Titleist & FootJoy PGA Professional Championship North West qualifier to reach the final at his first attempt at Delamere Forest.

His four-under-par 67 at the Cheshire left him one ahead of Sandiway’s Gareth Jones.

They will join 13 other qualifiers at Little Aston club in Sutton Coldfield for the £78,000 grand final on July 24-27.

Palmer (pictured) said:  “The only bad shot I hit all day was a double bogey at the 14th.

“At that point, I said to myself that I just had to make sure I qualified and not to let it get to me.Andy Palmer.jpg

“But I made a couple of birdies after that and it was the best I’d played for a long time.

“It was quite bouncy out there. I was pleased with how I played, it was the first time I’ve been eligible to compete for it after graduating from the PGA course in April.”

He added: “I played at Little Aston in the English Amateur Championship a while ago.”
