John leads 19 South East golfers to chase their dream

first_img Nineteen South East golfers are one step closer to playing with a star of the European Tour after qualifying for the national final of Bridgestone’s Chase Your Dream Trophy, run in partnership with England Golf. They came through the regional qualifier at Sonning Golf Club, near Reading, where John Green (pictured) led from start to finish with a net score of 65. Green, from the Royal Household Golf Club, based at Windsor Castle, was in the first group out and set the target. By the end of a long, hot day he’d been caught by Neill Jonas (Tilgate Forest, Sussex) who also shot net 65, but no-one had passed him. The pair now go forward to the final in England Golf Week at Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire, in August, together with James Sleigh (East Herts), James Goh (Tilgate Forest, Sussex), Dean Penfold (Army, Hampshire), Josh Maguire (Fulwell, Middlesex), Phil Chalk (Ifield, Sussex), Prem Mehta (Batchworth Park, Hertfordshire), Nathan Lake (Easthampstead, BB&O), John Hubbleday (Harpenden, Hertfordshire), Barrie Harding (West Byfleet, Surrey), Giles Puckle (Clandon Regis, Surrey), Nick Horne (Rochester & Cobham Park, Kent), Kevin Maguire (Southwood, Hampshire), Connor Wood (Birchwood Park, Kent), Kevin Seggery (Centurion, Hertfordshire), Sam Allcock (Tenterden, Kent), Jeremy Platt (East Berkshire), Joe Simpson (Burford, BB&O).

The top nine players in the field will play in the pro-am of the Bridgestone Challenge, the English leg of The Challenge Tour, at Luton Hoo on 6 September. They’ll be joined by the top nine players from the companion women’s championship, making up a total of six teams in the pro-am. The most successful of these teams will go on to the pro-am of the British Masters, supported by Sky Sports, at Close House in Northumberland later in the same month, playing with a star of The European Tour.
