Sandiway Pro AmThis Pro Am has attracted 50, 36 and 50 TEAMS on the three previous visits to Sandiway.
Garry Houston warmed up for PQ2 at El Saler by winning by three shots at St Annes Old Links with a superb round of nine under par 63. he started quickly with birdies at the first, fourth,sixth eight and ninth to be out in 31 and didn`t let up. He got up and down from the bunker to birdie the tenth, drove the green at the eleventh but three putted for a boring par. Further birdies were to come at twelve,thirteen and fifteen and with the tough par three 16th negotiated he stood on the seventeenth tee nine under with two par fives playing downwind to finish. The bunkers at St Annes are lethal and his only bogey came at the 17th where he found one of the traps down the left hand side. His tenth birdie of the day came at the 18th for a great round of 63. Joint second were Course record holder Andy Palmer and Robert Booth who both shot 66`s. James Tisdale from Wallasey playing his first event as a professional shot a very creditable 67 alongside Scotlands Chris kelly. In all the 22 players were 57 under par which is credit to the standard and also the condition of St Annes Old Links which for late October was incredible. Thanks to Stuart Hogg and his staff.
