England (East) Region

Three-way tie at The Shire

03 Sep 19

Portelli Triumphs At Northwood

Jason Levermore (Little Channels Golf Centre), Glen Portelli (Old Fold Manor) and Rob Watson (Porters Park) shared top spot after a great day’s golf at The Shire Pro-Am.

The trio all shot four-under-par rounds of 68 to finish a shot ahead of a further three players who tied for fourth.

Portelli looked set to secure outright success after a wonderful run of four straight birdies around the turn helped him to five-under.

But he was unable to make further inroads and then dropped a shot at his final hole – the first – to slip back to four-under.

By contrast Watson finished with a real charge, making eagle at the par-five 13th (his 15th hole) followed by a birdie two at the 14th. That lifted him into a share of top spot and his first victory – albeit a joint one – on the 2019 East region schedule, although he also tied for first in an English PGA Championship qualifier at Ely back in May.

Levermore has now racked up seven pro-am wins in the East in his year as the region’s captain.

Matt Cousens (Bushey Hill) led the winning team on a combined tally of 128 – two strokes clear at the summit.
