Hale Golf Club PGA Golf Professional
Wow what a great win in the US Open at the weekend for Brooks Koepka equalling Rory McIroy's scoring record of 16 under. Erin Hills was 7,845 yards long, but it certainly didn't seem to play overly long for Koepka who averaged 308 yards from the tee and hit 88% of the fairways. There was also a great showing from Southport's Tommy Fleetwood who finished in fourth place on eleven under.
Well done to Brian Greenbank for winning the Gentleman Captain's Prize on Saturday with 39 points. His handicap is now very close to category one. It was a hot day and the greens were running fast and so the temperature took it's toll on one or two of the players. Second place was shared between our head greenkeeper Russell Lewis and Andrew Fishwick with 38 points. The CSS of the day was 69 and there were seven twos recorded.
Congratulations also to Jan Ravenscroft for winning the Lady Captain's Day on Thursday with 37 points. Tessa Day, Pam Dixon and Claire Makin tied for second spot just one point behind. Rosie Gerrard continued her comeback by winning the Nine Hole Stableford with 13 points. The photos below show the winners and also lady captain Pat Jefferies "stepping out" with Janice Moss and Irene Kirk before play on the first tee.

First tee reservation
Just a polite reminder that the first tee is reserved for a junior competition on Sunday 25th June from 2pm - 2.45pm. Last time we got 16 entrants, which was fabulous, so we're hoping for similar this weekend!
