Lombard Trophy Regional Final
Sandiway Golf Club welcomed the Northern Region qualifier for the Lombard Trophy. The course was presented in wonderful condition by Course Manager Brian Taylor and his team.
Normanton Golf Club duo Scott McGovern and Callum Gaughan sealed a place in the Lombard Trophy Final - despite having to deal with an overnight burst water pipe at their hotel.
The Wakefield pair received an unwanted soaking both players had their clothing drenched as they woke up to an inch of water on the floor - and they had to get replacement garments at the professional’s shop before they could tee off.
It was as bad a preparation for the event as the Yorkshiremen could have had - yet they put their problems behind them to win by two shots after carding a nine under par round of 61 to beat Peter Allan and Nick Bradshaw (Ashton-in-Makerfield Golf Club) into second spot at the Cheshire venue.
That means they will be heading to Portugal for the £41,000 National Pro-Am grand final which will be played at the Vila Sol resort between September 21-22.
