No course record - but Maddy still wins in style at Thetford
Visiting professional Paul Maddy put together a brilliant six under par 66 at Thetford to equal the lowest round ever recorded there – but he missed out on a share of the course record.
With the course currently using preferred lies the round will not be officially recognised – but it was still good enough to earn the man from Gog Magog in Cambridgeshire a five stroke victory in the first Thetford Winter Pro Am series event. A blemish free round was constructed with six birdies and no bogeys. He only had one five on his card with everything else twos, threes and fours.
A slightly smaller field than normal contested the event due to two other pro-ams taking place nearby. Ten pairs contested the pro-am event and 28 pairs took part in the am-am.
In the Pro-Am event Maddy teamed up with six handicapper Ben Ellison to win by five shots from father and son pair Gerald and Miles Collins.
In the Am/Am event the winners were Steve Plumb and Tim Smith with a score of 66. Their round came to life on their last nine holes, finishing with eight nett threes. They won by two from home pair Kevin Stannard and Peter Goodwin.
