DAN WINS STAFFS TITLE

by Office

on Tue May 16, 2017


Congratulations to club assistant, Dan Whitby-Smith who has won the 2016/17 PGA Staffs Order of Merit.

Dan finished fourth in the last event of the series at South Staffs Golf Club, four shots behind tournament winner and former Ryder Club player, Peter Baker. Baker, now Director of Golf at South Staffs where club member Sue Spencer is competing in this week’s English Senior Women's Amateur event, won shooting an impressive 1 under in tough blustery conditions.

Dan’s run to the title was achieved over 13 events with an impressive series of performances which included:

1st at Enville 67 (-5)
1st at Little Aston 68 (-4)
1st at Ingestre 69 (-1)

He also had four runner up finishes, and a 3rd place.

Dan said: “The win has certainly set me up for the season and has given me a lot of confidence as we head into the summer. I’ve hit the ball well through the winter and had good finishes in the UK and overseas, but now the pressure is on to sustain the form as the season gets in to full swing.”

Dan’s next event is the Midland Open at Birstall Thursday and Friday this week. As well as playing this season, Dan will be focusing on the delivery of his junior teaching programme which is proving so popular with the junior members and youngsters from the local community.
