Lindrick's Bailey Gill came agonisingly close in his attempt to win the Portuguese Amateur Championship held at the Montado golf resort. Arriving in Lisbon with a severe bout of food poisoning it looked as though Bailey would have to withdraw from the tournament as he was unable to take part in any of the practice rounds,

Despite the lack of preparation he managed to complete the first round with a one under par score of 71. With his strength returning rounds of 67 and 68 put him into second place going into the last day, one shot off the leader. After thirteen holes Bailey was 3 under and tied for the lead, however a shot on the 14th that stopped inches out of bound left Bailey with a double bogey and not enough time to claw back the deficit. A birdie on the last ensured Bailey shared second place, finishing on 12 under par, 3 behind the winner.

Lindrick's Bailey Gill made a great start on his full England debut at Costa Ballena in Spain this week. Playing in an eight team international event, Bailey won all four of his singles matches and with his partner was beaten in only  one of his foursomes games. 

England were drawn in the same group as hosts Spain and despite being unbeaten failed to qualify for the final on a countback system, a draw with Spain on the opening day proving decisive. England comfortably defeated Finland to claim 3rd place, with the overall title going to Spain who beat the Netherlands 6-3 in the final.

Both Lindrick members Mark Foster and Jonathan Thomson were left celebrating following their success at the European Tour Q-school at Lumine in Spain. A top 25 spot was the goal in the six round marathon to claim full playing entries on the PGA tour for 2018. After first qualifying for his card in 2002 Mark was always in the top 25 through the week and closing scores of 66 & 67 ensured 9th place and a return to golf at the top level.

At the other end of the scale Jonathan ('Jigger') closed his final round with two birdies in a nail biting finish to secure 18th place by one shot after only one year as a professional.

Hard on the heels of one of our Ryder Cup members, Matt Fitzpatrick (23), winning the OMEGA European Masters title on Sunday, Peter Fletcher won Lindrick's oldest and most prestigious Men's trophy, the Jessop Cup, on Saturday 16th September.

Peter is regarded as a popular and exceptional role model at Lindrick, and in his younger days Peter was an Oxford University Blue and played in the 'Varsity football match with Cambridge University at Wembley Stadium. Here he is pictured with the Jessop Cup in our new Ryder Cup lounge.

Playing in strong windy conditions, off white tees and registering six gross pars, Peter scored 40 points to beat a list of 55 entrants and saw his handicap reduced by 2 full shots.

Peter achieved his victory aged 85, ie. 62 years the senior to Matt Fitzpatrick.
