New Record at the historic Old Course

Lindrick's Nicola Slater made a frustrating start in the St.Rule Womens Trophy at St.Andrews and rounds of 78 and 80 left the Yorkshire and England player well down the field. However, that was all to change when the 18yo stood on the tee on her third and final round.

Nicola who is the current Norhern Ladies Champion started well on the Old Course with 2 birdies on the first seven holes. She then played the next seven holes in a remarkable seven under par and added another birdie on the infamous 18th to end her round bogey free with an eagle and eight birdies. Her final score of 66 equalled the Ladies Course record at what is one of the oldest and arguably the most famous golf course in the World.

The record equalling round boosted Nicola to 19th position but her performance will be remembered for that fantastic achievement in her truly remarkable third round.

 

Beef beats Beefy at Lindrick

Sir Ian Botham flew in to Lindrick early on Wednesday morning to play the third hole of his endurance challenge in which he plays a hole in each of the 18 counties that have a first class cricket team - in 24 hours!

Arriving by helicopter and rushing straight to the first tee his opponent, another Beef, European Tour Pro Andrew 'Beef' Johnson smashed his drive to within 70 yards of the green and as the picture suggests, Sir Ian made an appropriate and complimentary comment.......

Beefy was not as lucky as his drive ended in the gorse to left of the fairway bunker. In trying to play his second shot he experienced the prickles from the gorse in a very sensitive area and his hillarious reaction was captured by the Sky Sports TV cameras and broadcast later that morning on Sky Sports News.

Beef won the hole to go 2 up but the challenge was to end all square at the 18th in Middlesex which was played in darkness following delays due to helicopter issues later in the day. The challenge was in aid of the Beefy Charity Foundation which funds projects relevant to illness and other challenges facing young people.

The event held at Frilford Heath saw a steady start from the Lindrick youngster with a 71 followed by a 69 to put him 4 under after the cut. Final day rounds of 68 and 67 boosted his finish to the top 3 on 13 under par, 3 shots behind the leader.

This top placing adds to his promising start to the season where he has finished second in the Portugese Amateur Open, made his full England debut and has improved his World Amateur ranking to #302.

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."
