REID MAKES IT THREE IN A ROW

29/07/2019

World number one Speed Golfer Jamie Reid has further cemented his grip on the top spot after yet another win at the British Speed Golf Champs.

Reid had a total score of 121.57 after shooting a round of 81 in 40 minutes and 57 seconds at Long Cross Course at Foxhills.

This is Reid’s third win in a row in his tour of Europe, and it came at a course that felt a little closer to home as Foxhills is where Kiwi number one Ryan Fox is a member.

“I went down to three clubs this event and the plan was to run the others off the course, and the plan worked perfectly.

“It’s good to know my training is working well for working well for world’s next year which is the ultimate goal after finishing runner-up last year,” said Reid.

The world number one is eyeing up the NSW Champs at the end of the year as his next competition.

Steve Alker has earned himself his fourth top 10 of the season on the Korn Ferry Tour, finishing in a tie for 10th at the Price Cutter Charity Championship.

Alker fired rounds 67, 71, 64, and 70 to finish at 16-under for the tournament, six shots back of the tournament champion Harry Higgs (USA).

Alker moves up eight spots in The 25 into 45th, with the top 25 at the regular seasons end earning PGA Tour cards for the following year.

Denzel Ieremia also teed it up this week on the Korn Ferry Tour after earning a spot in the field from his result last week.

Ieremia had another credible week finishing in a tie for 23rd. He posted rounds of 67, 72, 69, and 68 to get to 12-under for the tournament.

Tim Wilkinson and Nick Voke also had spots in the field. Wilkinson finished with rounds of 70, 68, 70, and 73 to finish seven-under for the tournament and in a tie for 49th.

Voke finished one shot back of Wilkinson at six-under after rounds of 74, 65, 73, and 70.

Over on the PGA Tour China, Ryan Chisnall made the cut in yet another weather effected tournament at the Dongguan Open.

The event was reduced to two rounds due to inclement weather, and Chisnall finished in a tie for 56th after shooting rounds of 70 and 73 to finish at three-over for the tournament.

Daniel Hillier and Luke Brown both teed it up in the Pacific Coast Amateur.

Hillier carded rounds of 74, 71, 71, and 69 to finish one-over par for the championship and in a tie for 39th.

Brown finished four shots back of Hillier at five-over for the tournament and in a tie for 50th. Brown finished with rounds of 71, 70, 73, and 75.

Michael Campbell made his return for major championship golf at The Senior Open Championship on the Staysure Tour.

It wasn’t another fairy-tale story for the former US Open Champion as he missed the cut after shooting rounds of 71 and 75 to finish six-over for the tournament, one shot outside the cut line.

Greg Turner also suffered the same fate, shooting consecutive rounds of 73 to miss the cut by a single stroke.

Another Kiwi playing in a major championship this week was Lydia Ko on the LPGA Tour. She teed it up at the Evian Championship in France.

Unfortunately, Ko would post her worst result at the tournament, missing the cut after finishing at nine-over for the tournament. She’s projected to fall two places in the Race to CME Globe into 35th.
