Wallis and Godwin lead Golfbreaks PGA Fourball Championship

24/08/2022

PGA Cup experience proves invaluable for Wallis and Godwin as they start the final day of the Golfbreaks PGA Fourball Championship in pole position.

The Cheshire Course at Carden Park Resort definitely suits Wallis (Canterbury Golf Club) and Godwin (Rochester and Cobham Golf Club) as they posted a leading 19-under-par score after two days of play in the Golfbreaks PGA Fourball Championship after rounds of 63 and 62.

The pair played in the same PGA Cup team in 2019, at Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin, Texas, so they are very much on the same page when it comes to teamwork.

Wallis said: “We play quite a lot together – we’re in the same region, we’ve played this event a few times, Jordan is only up the road from me and we’ve played in the PGA Cup together as well, so we know each other’s game inside out.”

Godwin added: “We don’t give each other a hard time and we know each other’s games so we kind of do our own thing and if we need a bit of back up, advice or a second look at something, it’s there! We trust each other with that so it works quite well.”

Despite not having played the Cheshire Course previously, the setup seems a good fit for Wallis and Godwin’s approach.

Godwin elaborates: “We didn’t know what to expect having played the Nicklaus course the last couple of years, but we walked the course on Monday – it plays nice, a little more challenging off the tee than the Nicklaus course – you have to think about where you’re positioning your ball a little bit more, but it seems to be working quite nicely for us at the minute!”

With the low scoring continuing across the field, any pairs at 10-under-par or lower make the cut going into the final round so it’s anyone’s game.

Wallis addeds: “In this format you’ve got to go for everything, we finished up there last year but you’ve got to shoot another low round tomorrow to be anywhere near with this format – the greens are soft, not too quick, so you can be quite aggressive.”

Wallis and Godwin tee off at 10.40am alongside Louis Boston (LB Golf Coaching) and Darren Bragg (Bushnell Golf) who currently sit in second place with -18 after rounds of 62 and 64.
