At the end of last week The West Lancashire Golf Club was represented in the Lancashire PGA Fourball Championships by our Head Professional Gavin and Assistant Professional Ed. The tournament took place at Crompton and Royton Golf Club in Oldham.
Having not practiced or played much both Gavin and Ed went into the event not expecting much and just hoping for a respectable score come the end of the tournament.
After missing two birdie putts at the first two holes whilst watching their playing partners making two birdies their pre tournament expectations were looking quite accurate. That said fortunes were soon to change with Gavin making 4 birdies in the next 6 holes to go 4 under through 8 holes. A lost ball by Gavin on 9 put pressure on Ed who duly obliged with a fantastic par to reach the turn in 4 under.
The back 9 saw Ed come into his own by holing a couple of fantastic birdie putts from distance on 11 and 15 and playing very solid to keep the front 9 momentum going.
In the end it was a great team effort with Team Abson/Tranter finishing with a 65 (5 under par) to take the title by two shots and become Lancashire PGA Fourball Champions.
