FAIRFIELD junior star Lewis Pownell set a new course record at his home club twice in 24 hours recently!
Playing the newly re-designed course, which opened this summer, the 17-year-old fired a 66 in the fiercely contested England v Scotland match. And the two-handicapper had to wait just 24 hours as the very next day, playing in the third round of the Autumn Cup, he had eight birdies and three bogeys as he carded a new record of 65.
Lewis began his golf at the club seven years ago and he is currently in his second year of a Golf Diploma at Myerscough College. He said: “It was an amazing two days for me and I would like to thanks my playing partners Danny and Lee Murray and Tom Henthorn for their support and encouragement.
“My grandad Arthur was a course record holder for many years on the old Fairfield course and my aim now is to drop it again and get my handicap down to scratch.”
