Course plays tough for pros

Surrey Advertiser - - Front Page -

CRAN­LEIGH Golf and Coun­try Club held its mem­bers’ pro-am re­cently and the com­pe­ti­tion proved a chal­lenge for the mod­ern golf pros.

The 5,644-yard par 68 course yielded a win­ning score of 70, with Burhill pro­fes­sional Mor­gan Kennedy tak­ing the hon­ours.

The two-over-par round was the high­est win­ning pro­fes­sional score of the sea­son in the re­gion.

Cran­leigh head pro­fes­sional Karl Mor­gan, said: “It just shows how tough our course is, even for these high-qual­ity pros. Mor­gan played a great round of golf and was still two over par.

“If you haven’t played the course be­fore, it can re­ally bite you and we were ac­tu­ally quite proud that no­body was able to break par. It’s good to see fur­ther ev­i­dence that golf is not all about how far you can hit the ball these days.”

The team hon­ours went to Ryan Whit­ing, Rhys Kin­sella, David Rud­ley and Stu­art Holder (pic­tured right), with a 13-un­der-par to­tal of 123.
