Ten­ter­den’s Benn Barham teams up with fel­low county golfer Max Brack­ley in the Golf­ PGA Four­ball Cham­pi­onship fi­nal next week. A £33,000 prize fund is on of­fer at Whit­tle­bury Park in Northamp­ton­shire start­ing on Wed­nes­day. The Pent­land group di­rec­tor of golf to­gether with Brack­ley, from Manston Golf Centre, pro­duced an im­pres­sive qual­i­fy­ing round with a 10-un­der-par round of 60 at Sur­biton last month. They were beaten only by Sus­sex pair Paul Nessling and Colton Davies, from Cooden Beach near Bex­hill, who shot 59. Barham and Brack­ley have be­come good friends through play­ing on the PGA cir­cuit. Barham said: “It’s the first time my­self and Max have played in this com­pe­ti­tion be­fore and he cad­died for me at Tour School.”

Bel War­dle tri­umphed at gale force Lit­tle­stone last week, win­ning the English Girls Cham­pi­onship by seven shots. Heavy rain and 45 mph winds made life dif­fi­cult for all the play­ers, with the fi­nal round aban­doned due to the con­di­tions. The 17-year-old Eng­land in­ter­na­tional from Prest­bury in Cheshire shot a one-un­der 72 in the third round, fol­low­ing rounds of 69 and 71 to fin­ish sev­e­nun­der-par, fin­ish­ing ahead of run­ner-up Martha Lewis (St Ge­orge’s Hill) on level par, with Me­gan Den­nis (Woburn) third on three-over.
