Archer Fires A Double

HAYDOCK Park Golf Club survived a night of torrential rain and the attendance of past Captain Doug Craig to provide a course in great condition and with superb greens for another strong and full field.

Birchwood’s Phil Archer kept up the form he showed at High Legh Park last week as he hit the bullseye of being top individual pro and winner of the pro am section.

He posted 40 points to top the individual pro section one point ahead of Colin Maroney (Bolton Old Links) and Olly Smith (Ashton-on-Mersey).
