Lindrick youngster Mia Eales Smith is celebrating her selection for the England U16 team to play against Spain in Madrid. The team consists of four boys and four girls and will play at the Centro National course which is the venue where Jon Rahm won the Spanish Open in April. England won the corresponding fixture at home by 15-9 in 2017 and 15yo Mia is hoping that her team can repeat that victory on her debut this weekend.

King rules in Seniors

Lindrick's senior professional John King showed he had nerves of steel in a play off to win the Silversea Seniors PGA title at Foxhills.

John started the last day in third place but significantly 6 shots adrift of Mark Ridley who was leading the event. On the final day John shot a one under score of 72 on the day and two under for the tournament and then was the short wait in the clubhouse for the scores from the final group. The Foxhills track had obviously showed it's teeth and Ridley could only manage a 77 (-2 overall) which led to a sudden death play-off with John King.

The 18th hole hosted the decider and a cool head and regulation par proved enough to lift the trophy for John who said "I was a little surprised to catch Mark but you never know in this game. I've had to work hard for a victory before but today was one of my best rounds tee to green, I'm delighted."

Lindrick's Bailey Gill has been selected alongside the top english amateurs to play for England against France on May 12-13 in a bi-annual international. This will be 20yo Bailey's second full cap having made his debut in Spain earlier this year.

The match takes place at the Vidauban Golf Club in the south of France which is one of the most exclusive clubs in Europe and despite having only a handful of members has recently undergone an extensive rejuvenation project which has resulted in the course claiming to be the best in France (although the Vidauban exclusivity policy means that the claim will be difficult to validate!).

Bailey joins experienced Walker Cup players and other England veterans Matthew Jordan, Andrew Wilson, Gian Marco Petrozzi, David Hague, Todd Clemens, Ben Jones and Billy McKenzie in the eight man team.

 

 

Bailey so close in Lisbon

on Sun February 18, 2018

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.

Bailey (smiling!) is 4th from the right.
