No match for Nesbit on the NENW PGA circuit

Westerhope Golf Club’s Michael Nesbit produced a fine run of form on the North East & North West PGA circuit, while Morpeth Golf Club’s David Clark secured top spot in the order of merit.

Michael won the NENW PGA Tour Championship at Brancepeth Castle Golf Club with a round of 67 as Mark Ridley and Phil Waugh finished a shot further back in a tie for second place. David picked up a tied-fifth finish in the event to end the seven-event order of merit series with 849 points – nearly 200 points clear at the top after winning the PGA Championship at Tyneside and the Pro Series event at Bishop Auckland.

Meanwhile, on the pro am circuit, Michael led the field at Brampton with a one under-par round of 71 as six players tied for second place. He went on to share top spot at Bellingham Golf Club with Craig Goodfellow as both players shot five under-par rounds of 65.

In the association pro am at Rockliffe Hall, Ken Ferrie led the way with 42 points as Callum Tarren returned from the US to finish in second place alongside Rockliffe’s Simon Robinson. Ken also picked up the top prize in the Northumberland Golf Club Pro Am with a round of 68 while at Crook, Darren Pearce marked his first pro am since moving to Headlam Hall with a victory – sharing the top spot with Andrew Scrimshaw on level par.
