Lilly clinches hotly contested Pro Am

The eagles were flying in at the Floor Restorations Pro Am at Solihull’s Ladbrook Park Golf Club

The eagles were flying in at the Floor Restorations Pro Am at Solihull’s Ladbrook Park Golf Club.

But it was Wellingborough GC’s Simon Lilly who retained his title after carding a six-under par round of 65.

The Northamptonshire golfer made the perfect start with an eagle at the 1st and further birdies followed to take him to six-under by the turn. A steady back nine then proved enough for him to finish a shot clear.

Matthew Cort (Rothley Park GC) was his nearest challenger on five-under and he also eagled the opening hole. His four more birdies would have tied for the lead had he not dropped a shot at the 11th.

There was a three-way tie for third with Craig Shave (Whetstone GC), John-Paul Banbury (Moor Hall GC) and Paul Broadhurst all going round in 69s.

And eagles were also on the cards for two of the trio – Shave bagging his at the 9th with Broadhurst hitting a spectacular eagle at the par four 3rd.
