Danny’s the real McCoy

Stockport Times West - - SPORT -

DANNY McCoy shat­tered the Ho u l d s w o r t h course record on the way to win­ning the four-round Medal­lion Trophy.

The 21-year-old, twohand­i­cap­per has been a mem­ber at Houldsworth for the past nine years and shot a fan­tas­tic round of 62 to shat­ter the pre­vi­ous course record set by Gary Hill some 20 years ago.

He posted nine birdies and an ea­gle two on the 18th with his only flaw com­ing on the third hole with a dou­ble-bo­gey six.

With rounds of 74, 74 and 70 it gave him a four­round to­tal of 278.

McCoy said: “I drove the ball su­perbly on the day but my wedge game and put­ter re­ally made the record pos­si­ble in a very solid per­for­mance.

“I have now won six ‘ma­jors’ at Houldsworth. two Or­der of Mer­its and my next aim is to turn pro and play on a small cir­cuit and see how I get on.”
