WINDERMERE and England elite squad player, Adam Chapman, has retained his North of England title, winning the North of England Amateur Strokeplay Championship at Pannal Golf Club.
He fired rounds of 64 and 69 in Yorkshire to finish on a two-round score of 133. His three-under-par second round was enough to win by two shots.
With nine birdies in the first round and four birdies in the second, Chapman, who has had a disappointing season, was delighted to have retained his crown.
“I’m very pleased to have won again at Pannal and it’s a nice finish to the season,” he said. “I knew it was coming, because I’ve been working harder than ever on my game. I’ve been trying out a few new things and also have a new putter in the bag, which worked particularly well in the first round. I also had my dad caddying for me, which always helps a great deal!”
Despite the weather being fine and playing conditions soft, the competition, originally scheduled as a three-day event, was reduced to 36 holes due to thick morning fog, which refused to lift.
