England and Wales (North) Region

New PGA North series off to flying start

28 Mar 18

The first event in a new venture instigated by The PGA North to promote a golf union throughout the whole region swung into action with more than 40 professionals battling for honours at Huddersfield's Crosland Heath.

Four players shared the spoils on one-under-par 70 in the first event of The PGA North Members Tour on Tuesday.

Favourite Phil Archer (above) looked on course to claim the honours until two late bogeys pegged the former European Tour player back.

In the mix were Jason Proctor, representing Sheffield-based Indoor Golf Academy, Sandiway Golf Club's Matthew Dunbabin and Lee Rooke from Harlech club Royal St David's.

There was a healthy representation of players from most parts of the biggest region of the country outside Scotland and with 11 fixtures all told there's a lot to play for.

PGA North tournament director, Andrew Chadwick, said: "We've got off to a positive start and we are confident the number of players will grow between now and the final event at Fulford Golf Club in October."

The next event is at Bolton Old Links Golf Club on April 9.
