2014 Fylde Amateur Championship



In ideal playing conditions and on a course that had been prepared the week before to host the Lancashire PGA Open, and with a field of 46 of the best amateur golfers on the Fylde coast, the scene was set for a memorable Fylde Amateur Championship.

With fast running fairways and greens, the firm conditions was to provide the home players with something of an advantage, with both the eventual gross and nett prize winners to be members of North Shore. After an opening round of 70 playing off a handicap of 4, under 15 English Boys squad player, Harvey Talarczyk was to follow this up with a nett 71 in the afternoon to beat Lancaster’s Harry Borland by one shot. He in turn beat North Shore’s Tony Saunders on a card playoff.

The main event was also to prove a very close run thing with James Hall and Alex Croston setting the clubhouse lead with two very steady rounds of 71 each for Level par. As one or two of the morning round leaders faulted in the afternoon, Damian Senior in the final group was the only player left who could better this score. His par 4 on the 18th was sufficient to lift his first Fylde Amateur Championship title, his afternoon score of 72, following a morning round of 69, proving to be good for a one shot winning margin – despite his shocking dress sense!

In his winner’s speech Damian was to make reference to a miracle four he made on the 10th hole in his afternoon round, where he hit his second shot towards the pond to the left of the green. Whilst in the water hazard, he decided to play the ball and having chipped on to the green then proceeded to hole the putt for a birdie.

Another highlight of the day was Glynn Rees’ hole in one on the 12th which we believe to be the first time this has happened in the 30 plus years that the event has been played.
