Allan sets record to head Brabazon qualifiers at Effingham

first_img Chelmsford’s James Allan fired a course record 67 to head the field in the Brabazon Trophy Southern Qualifier at Effingham.The 19 year old Essex county player carded seven birdies to finish on four under par and head the 30 qualifiers for the Brabazon Trophy proper at Seaton Carew on June 25-28.Allan’s 67 set a course record because of course alterations at Effingham including a re-design of the 18th hole. The previous record of 63 over the former layout was held by former Open champion, the late Bobby Locke from South Africa in 1959 and in more recent times by Surrey’s Curtis Griffiths.Allan, who was among the late starters in overcast conditions with the occasional shower, made a great start to his round with birdies at the two opening holes, a bogey at the fifth but erased that with a birdie at seven to reach the turn in two under.He added four more birdies on the back nine but came back to the field with a couple of bogeys in the final three holes.However, his 67 left him two shots clear of the five players on 69 including Hampshire Hog winner Sam Edwards (Bigbury, Devon) and another Essex county player Mitchel Sarling (Rochford Hundred).With 30 places available, nine players finished on the cut off mark of 73 with seven to qualify in a sudden death playoff. Among those successful were international Ed Richardson (Rye, Sussex), Craig Smith (Pike Hills, Yorkshire) and Jack Cardy (Ipswich, Suffolk).Toby Thorne, championship manager for England Golf, said: “Effingham Golf Club proved to be the perfect venue for the Brabazon Trophy Southern Qualifier. The course was an ideal test for the competitors and as a result, we found 30 worthy qualifiers.”The Brabazon Northern Qualifier will be played at Ringway Golf Club next Tuesday, 20th May.Photo of Sam Edwards copyright Leaderboard Photography. 16 May 2014 Allan sets record to head Brabazon qualifiers at Effingham last_img read more
