Bailey aiming high at Alwoodley

Lindrick’s Bailey Gill is going trophy hunting this summer after setting his sights on capturing one of amateur golf’s big titles. His first opportunity will come on local soil when the English Men’s Open Amateur Strokeplay Championship - better known as The Brabazon - is played at Alwoodley at the end of May. The Leeds course is a favourite of Gill’s and one he is very familiar with thanks to a reciprocal agreement between his home course and Alwoodley. But before he competes against an international field what is arguably the biggest strokeplay event in world amateur golf , he was once again due to represent his country in the European Nations Cup at Sotogrande in southern Spain from Apri

Marsh is in great Nick

Huddersfield’s Nick Marsh secured the second win of his professional career in sensational style. Marsh played the last five holes in five under par at Ghala Golf Club in Muscat, Oman, to hold off Robin Rousell by two shots to win the MENA Tour by Arena. Frenchman Roussel, starting the day four shots behind the champion, shot a course-record nine-under par 63 and had caught up with England’s Marsh with four holes to play.

Danny gets 'homework' aid

Danny Willett’s wedge play should be sharper than ever after installing a short game area in his back garden.

Huxley Golf has built the practise area at his South Yorkshire home to go with the putting green they fitted just before he won the 2016 Masters. Willett came up with a very specific brief that would enable him to work on his wedge play from 120 yards in and the resulting area has been carefully crafted to create the contours and three hole locations to give him a wide range of difficult wedge shots. The back

Grim wait finally over...

Yorkshire seniors team captain John Grimbleby has played thousands of shots during in his golfing life, but one will live with him forever after making his first hole in 55 years of playing the game. His ace came just four days after his 72nd birthday, the day on which he was due to have shoulder surgery but was sent home after Dewsbury hospital staff discovered he had an infection. "Enjoy the rest of your week said the nurse who had just put me on a course of antibiotics. How right was she. I started playing golf at 17 and turned 72 on March 4th. I have never had a hole in one and shouldn't even have been playing golf that day," Grimbleby told Yorkshire Golfer. Playing partners Steve Mason
