Lindrick's Callum Macfie lifted the U16 North of England title with a 9 under par total of 279 in the championship held at Pannal GC.

After a first round 71, a 68 followed a 69 to put him into a five shot lead going into the last round where a 71 was enough to clinch the title by one shot despite a tournament best of 67 from second placed Matthew Jackman pushing Callum all the way to the line.

A very pleased Callum said "I'm delighted to have finished my last U16 event with a win. It's been a tough year with both injury and exams however, I've been working really hard on my game for the last 3 to 4 weeks so I'm pleased it all came together for this event. I was fourth last year and really wanted to win it this time".

Lindrick's senior professional John King enjoyed a successful week at the PGA British Seniors Open at Royal Porthcawl. While eventual winner Bernhard Langer was enjoying a comfortable start to his week John was in South Wales attempting to qualify for the main event.

A score of one under par ensured he would start the event alongside legendary players including major winners Sir Nick Faldo, Tom Watson, Ian Woosnam and John Daly to name just a few. Very high winds on the first two days made scoring very challenging yet John stuck in and a birdie on the 18th in his second round ensured that he made the cut. 

Scores of 78,77,78,72 saw John finish in 73rd position a fantastic performance considering his lack of playing time preceding the competition. "We hosted the English Ladies Championship last week so I didn't get to hit any balls at all and going into Monday this was only my fifth competitive round, I was considering pulling out as my form was not good. Then I just found something, played well and on the 18th in qualifying hit a 230 yard tee shot over the water and on to the green which gave me a lot of confidence for the main event later in the week. I really enjoyed playing with the big names again and hope to be back again next year."
