Parry stays on winning streak

Steve Parry is unlikely to forget the last few days in a hurry after tasting success in sunny Portugal and now back home at Kendal club Carus Green.

The Hart Common professional picked up a cool £12,000 when he and amateur partner Andy Picton won the Lombard Trophy in Portugal at the weekend.

And he added another £1,800 to the pot by topping the leaderboard in the PGA North MTS Group Final.

Parry tagged a 69 to his opening 65 to finish a shot ahead of the field but endured an anxious wait by the par three final green as Robert Booth stood on the tee requiring a birdie to force a play-off.

But the Crosland Heath professional over-hit his shot and saw his ball bounce off a wall and end up in the clubhouse which cost him two strokes.

"I never expected that to happen and I had to sympathise with Robert because he was six-under playing the last,” admitted Parry. “I got the distance right and nearly birdied the hole.

"I tried to stay solid all the way round and I certainly didn’t want to drop any shots. I erred only once shot in two rounds."

He added: "The win in Portugal boosted my confidence. I played from the front there and I used that experience again.

"It was the first time we’ve had this Race to Carus Green and it’s helped me to get to the PGA play-offs in November."
