Mike Greener named Durham county captain

Durham’s new county captain will oversee a new approach for the men’s team ahead of 2021’s Northern Counties league campaign.

With the 2020 county programme cancelled, the Durham union took the opportunity to appoint Mike Greener as captain as Peter Dewar moves into his new role as chairman of the county executive.

Mike, a three-handicapper from Rockliffe Hall, has a wealth of experience in team golf and a passion for short game performance coaching. He has already mapped out a plan for the county side, starting with a two-day trip to Woodhall Spa.

“I’ve had a chat with the players and we have identified the short game as our weakest area as a team, so we’re going to work on that,” said Mike.

“We’ve never been far away from getting to the top and it’s small margins that make the difference. That’s what we are looking at.

“With the right coaching and support, and hard work by the players, we can compete with all the teams in the Northern Counties league.”
