Summer 2018 saw the return of the English Men’s Amateur Championships to Formby Golf Club where a feild of 73 were looking to follow in the footsteps of previous winners Paul Casey, Danny Willet and Tommy Fleetwood.
Hosted by Formby Golf Club and partner course Hesketh Golf Club, sunny and bright weather greeted the competitors on July 31st. A good number of spectators were treated to first class golf from the entire field, culminating in the final where Thomas Thorloway was victorious against Joe Long 6&5 in the 36 hole match.
An impressive display or power and precision was seen by both golfers as they planned their way around the course and managed their games to the highest level.
A long hitter with a great short game, Thomas was a fantastic 8 under par on the holes played during the final with Joe being equally as impressive with a 3 under par total.
We were delighted to stage such an iconic event and a pleasure to see so many fantastic golfers on the course, we will certainly be keeping an eye open for future champions!
