Paul Streeter, last year’s Midland PGA order of merit winner looked a good prospect having won 11 times this season on the Midland’s circuit this year with the highlight of his season being a top 20 finish in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth (earning £40,000 in this event alone) and beating a host of world class players such as Lee Westwood along the way! He could not quite take this form to The Abbey though and finished with a respectable level par 72 (tied 4th).
Coordinator of the event – The Abbey’s Head Professional Rob Davies was delighted with the day, “I’ve had so many positive comments from the Professionals and amateurs about the course, dinner and prizes. I’m very proud we attracted such a strong field of Pro’s, this event has definitely now become a prominent fixture on the Midlands PGA circuit and next year we hope to attract even more team entries”.
