The Lombard Trophy PGA national pro-am qualifier was held at Sidmouth last Saturday, writes George Carr.

Carl Sheehan triumphed over a large field with a net 63 to win the privilege of partnering club professional Ben Thorn at Bovey Castle on June 28, where a good result could find them both contesting the final at Glen Eagles later in the year - a mouth watering prospect.

However, Carl will hope for a better start than he had on Saturday, when, after dropping seven shots in the first three holes, Bovey Castle and Glen Eagles must have seemed a long way off!

However, he steadied the ship with seven pars and a birdie on the far-from-easy 10th hole for a well deserved win for a fast improving golfer.

Ed Willis in second place, a shot behind on 64 will be rueing the bogeys he carded on 17 and 18.

Lester Wimington’s commendably steady golf for a gross 67 earned him the third spot with Peter Crocombe, who had dropped only two shots at the turn, in fourth spot with a gross 68.

Last, but certainly not least, Will Hastie’s lowest gross score of 74 is surely worth a mention - well played gentlemen.
