Rhys Thompson scored a sensational hat-trick of victories in the space of just 15 days to top the Durham County Order of Merit.
The highlight for the 21-year-old was victory in the inaugural Boldon Scratch Open on his home track and he capped off the weekend with a win in the resurrected Consett Open.
That double came hot on the heels of winning the Keith Shivers Bowl at Heworth and a fourth place finish in the Pannal Rose Bowl.
“It’s been going well,” said Thompson, who enjoyed a stellar couple of years with his Durham County Matchplay Championship win, top individual score in the Northern Counties Championship and the Durham County Order of Merit two years in succession – a third triumph looks on the cards.
Thompson, currently playing off a handicap of plus three, fancies a crack at the pro ranks but won’t be rushed into any decision. He currently works at Slaley Hall and has a degree in golf management.
“I’d like to give pro golf a go but I’m still looking to see how the rest of the year goes and then I’ll weigh up my options,” he added.
