GQ Wealth Management were proud Sponsors of the ‘Hit the Green Challenge’ and nearest the Pin on the 17th cash Prize at Bishop’s Stortford Golf Club, Pro – Am
Bishop’s Stortford Golf Club were host’s to a major PGA East Region tournament over 3 days. The two day, Order of Merit, event is contested by the top 100 PGA pros in the East of England and culminates in the Bishop's Stortford Pro Am. In the Pro Am the top 50 professionals from the previous two days are joined by teams of three amateurs to play for a team prize and a separate Professional purse. This is a prestigious event which has been played at the club for over 80 years and is supported and enjoyed by local businesses and golfers alike.
Philip Mitchelmore’s team of Dan Bowler, Simon Davies and their pro Jason Levermore were tipped as the hot favourites to win, but unfortunately only came in the top 10. Despite the day being nice and sunny it was extremely windy proving difficult for many of the golfers to hit the ball on the green at the 17th which is a par 3. This was also said for the professional golfers with only 4 out of 50 teams landing their ball on the green. However professional golfer Laurence Allen did manage to win the £100 cash prize!
