Dean Edwards and his Aspley Guise & Woburn Sands PGA Professional Richard Lally are one step away from following in the footsteps of Europe’s Ryder Cup heroes with an appearance in the Lombard Trophy final at Gleneagles.
Edwards teed up a chance to tread the fairways of the PGA Centenary Course, venue for the dramatic matchplay win over the United States last year, between September 1-2 when he won his club qualifying competition with a nett score of 69.
He and Lally now advance to the regional final at Northamptonshire County Golf Club on June 29, where they will compete against up to 70 other clubs for the chance to secure one of 16 prized spots available for the 36-hole grand final.
Ian Isaac, head of sales at Lombard, said: “After a record number of entries in 2014, this year’s Lombard Trophy promises to be another exciting competition.
“It’s great to be working with The PGA to offer the opportunity for amateur golfers to play on fantastic courses.”
