Dykes powers into the lead at Blackpool

09 Sep 19

Tim Dykes North

Tim Dykes swept into a three-shot lead with a stunning eight-under-par round of 63 in
the opening round of the James Brearley Lancashire Open at Blackpool North
Shore, writes David Birtill.

The Welshman, a former Europro player who is attached to Penrith Golf Club, opened up with a brace of birdies on the front nine then stepped on the gas with six more after the turn.

He looked unbeatable and the trio sharing second place, Sale's Ben Thompson, Carden Park's former European Tour member Gary Houston and Chorley's Andrew Palmer, have their work cut out to overtake him in the second and final round.
