FGC member Geoff Harris wins English Mid-Amateur Championships

Formby Golf Club would like to congratulate member Geoff Harris on his victory at the English Mid-Amateur held at the Leicestershire Golf Club last week.

Geoff, England Golf Coast’s Manager, was previously third in 2017 and runner up last year at Long Ashton Golf Club.

Geoff explained of his journey at the tournament,

“After finishing third at Beau Desert two years ago, and then a distant second to Nick last year at Long Ashton, I was beginning to wonder if my chance had gone,” he told England Golf.

“I played very nicely. The golf course is in fantastic condition but it is pretty firm and fast so you have to be careful where you hit it.

“I just tried to keep in the play as best as I could and see if I could get a couple of putts to drop. I only hit one driver today and it worked very nicely. I’m delighted to get my name on a trophy as prestigious as this one.”

A fantastic achievement for Geoff!
