The "Autumn swing" on the TP Tour commenced at the Berkshire Golf Club on 9th September, where a field of top professionals were in action. The stunning Blue course was in fine shape for the event, the course has recently been selected in the World's Top 100 by a panel of golf architects for the highly respected Golf Course Architecture magazine.
The winner, with a great score of 65 was Ben Cooper from Bishops Stortford, firing 6 birdies to overcome William Harrold, by a single stroke.
On 23rd September the Tour made its first visit to Sandy Lodge GC
in Middlesex, a 100 year old inland links designed by the legendary Harry Vardon. Sandy Lodge is a gem of a course which has stood the test of time, and has been chosen by the R&A to host Open Championship qualifying in 2015. The TP Tour players were all unanimous in praise for the course and the facilities, with two players shooting a new course record 65 - Dorset's Lee James and Steve Lewton, from Woburn, who is now a top competitor on the Asian Tour.
A very high standard of play was in evidence by spectators and supporters on the day.
Lewton won the event in fine style, sinking a 12 foot birdie putt on the 4th play off hole after a tough battle with James, the former Amateur Champion and Challenge Tour winner.
The Tour looks forward to a return to Sandy Lodge - a must play venue for all serious golfers.
The Berkshire is also one of the TP Tour's featured Pro am venues. The August Pro Am was in support of the On Course Foundation Charity, and the winner was Liam Bond with a superb round of 62 !
