Great Brittain honoured for unique double


Jamie Brittain’s unique achievement in becoming the first person to win the PGA Midlands Order of Merit and the equivalent competition for its Assistants has resulted in him being named the region’s Player of the Year for 2019.

Brittain was presented with his commemorative plaque by PGA Midlands chairman Craig Phillips during the Regional Members’ Meeting at Henley Golf and Country Club, Henley-in-Arden, Warwickshire.

Nick Soto, the head PGA Professional at Northampton Golf Club, was also on hand to be presented with the PGA Midlands Coach of the Year 2019.

“Commenting on the award, he said: “I’m delighted to be named PGA Midlands Coach of the Year 2019. I always enjoy what I do and learn more about it each day.

“I feel very lucky to have learnt from some great coaches along the way.”

Meanwhile, marathon man extraordinary and head PGA pro at Penn Golf club, James Wright, was the region’s nomination for the Toby Sunderland Award as a result of his fundraising for Walsall’s Acorn’s Children’s Hospice; and world-renowned trick shot artist David Edwards won the Special Achievement Award.

Neither was on-hand to collect their awards, unlike Matthew Pugh of the John Reay Golf Centre, and Coventry Golf Club’s Adelle Middleton.  

The former was named the region’s TGI Year 3 Assistant of the Year and the latter won the Year 2 award. The Year 1 prize went to Lee Cardy of Kenwick Park Golf Club, Lincolnshire.
