Woolley is back


David Woolley won the well-supported PGA in Norfolk pro-am at Royal Cromer.

The Middleton Hall player’s round of two under par 70 suggested that he has thrown off the effects of back problems that have been dogging him for the past year.

Former Royal Cromer assistant Ryan Pudney, now at Mundesley, was the early club house leader with level par 72.

Later he was joined on that score by Stuart Brown from Orton Meadows and assistant Joe Lambert (Norfolk Premier Golf) who hobbled through his final three holes with a sore knee.

Michael Few of Weston Park, Tony Varney of Bawburgh and Neil Mitchell of Bury Golf Range were joint fifth with 73.

Royal Cromer’s course was in excellent condition and the club will be hosting the Royal Cromer 125th Anniversary Championship on May 29 and 30.

It is the first of this year’s six order of merit events in the East.

Brown, with amateurs John Harris, Rob Warren and Mike Robinson won the team prize with a score of 130 which was 14 under par.  Lambert, Jason Elkins, Gavin Sargent and Dave Longdale were runners-up one shot behind. Third place with 134 went to Will Woodrow (Royal Cromer), Keith Woodcock, Peter Hicks and Kevin Abbs.
