With checks completed and to the best of our knowledge Darren Whitfield set a new amateur course record for the blue tees with a 63 gross last Sunday in the second round of the club championship qualifying. With a solid 33 shots for the front 9 the foundations were set for another good score to accompany his morning round of 69. When the dust settled on a blistering last 5 holes which saw a run of straight birdies to finish (2,4,2,3,4) for a back 9 of 30 a 63 had been returned. Darrens total of 132 saw him lead the qualifiers by 9 shots from Mike Parker (141). In total 16 players have qualified for the matchplay stages which will see the final played on the 4th September. Congratulations to all qualifiers (listed below) and good luck!
