Tom Metcalfe is the second aspiring professional in PGA North to chalk up a
maiden victory this month.

The 20-year-old from Wigan club Gathurst followed in the spikemarks of Dean
Wood's Robert Henderson, who made his breakthrough at Lancaster two weeks
ago.

Metcalfe has registered a few top five finishes in his burgeoning career soit was no surprise when he posted a bogey-free three-under-par 68 at Carlisle, prevailing by a stroke in the PGA North Assistants' Championship NE/NW.

His racked up birdies on the fifth, ninth and 11th holes and felt he should
have had more. 

"I struck the ball solidly but missed some fairly easy putts," he reflected.

"But it was the first time I'd seen the course and it was a pleasure to play
it."

Penrith assistant Tim Dykes and Oliver Smith, from Ashton-on-Mersey, tied
second a shot off the pace.
