HAVING passed on his knowledge to Alderley Edge Golf Club members, Charles le Sueur is looking to play more golf at professional level.

The Edge club pro played in a recent PGA qualifying event at Pike Fold, with the highest finishers earning a spot in the upcoming PGA Professional Championship.

And while he did not quite reach his goal this time, missing out by a single shot after a back-nine fightback, he says there is plenty he can take from the experience.

“There was a fairly strong wind making it challenging to control distances,” he said.

“I had a poor start and was four over after 10 holes before making a bit of a comeback to find myself one over with two to play.

“Unfortunately, a bogey on the tough 17th led to me finishing on two over in 23rd position, missing out on qualifying by one shot.

“Some positives to take – I made five birdies but just far too many sloppy mistakes. Hopefully I can rectify some of this before my next event.”

Back at Edge, the monthly Stableford competition had Hansel Allen topping Division One with 38 points, two clear of both Harrison Peck and Harry Sexton.

Robert Turner topped Division Two with 37 from Robert Anderson and Jon Lingard, who totalled 36 and 35 respectively.

The club’s ladies played their Coronation Foursomes qualifier, with W Harrison and A Parkins winning the right to represent the club next year.

They led in with 34 points, well clear of closest challengers J Smith/J Foden and S Freeman/L Fowler, who both finished five points further back.

Jo Pratt was the nine-hole winner on 18, two more than Jean Walker.

Over at Styal Golf Club, a Seniors Stableford saw Ted Marsden winning Division One via a card play-off from Michael O’Donovan after both finished on 32 points, two more than David Wrigley and Kevin Bocquet.

Division Two was more clear cut with Graham Jones (39) out on his own and finishing well clear of Peter Booth (33) and David O’Brien (32).

The Styal ladies were also in Stableford action, with Helen Billington first past the post on 28 points from Andrea Savin (27) and Pat Chadwick (24), while a Wednesday medal at the club was won by a dominant Nick Saberton (68) who was way ahead of next-best finisher Joe Bradshaw (82).
