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.

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."
