Shinkwin holds firm to claim the TP Tour shootout
Rob Harrhy from Frilford Heath, gained his first professional win at West Herts Golf Club on the TP Tour on June 1st. Harrhy scored a round of 67 matching the score of Raymond Russell, former European Tour winner. In the sudden death play off, Harrhy made a birdie putt of some 12 feet on the first hole.
Thanks to all at West Herts a superb layout, with many notable holes - a great test of golf for the TP Tour players.
Alun Lynch from Clyne Golf Club near Swansea got his first win as a Pro at Sonning Golf Club on May 29th. A play off with Ben Nash from Cooden Beach resulted in Lynch winning on the par three second hole, after striking his tee shot six feet away from the cup.
Sonning, an original Harry Colt design, was in first class condition for the TP Tour event - heavy rain on the day did nothing to disrupt the tournament, a testament to the course quality.
