Bailey so close in Lisbon
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.
