Burgess Hill’s Ryan Fitzgerald, the current PGA South Assistants & Trainees champion, shot a flawless five-under-par 67 around Farnham to win Titleist & FootJoy A&T BetterBall Pro-Am by two strokes and notch up his first victory of 2017.
The event marks the finale of the 2016-2017 Titleist & FootJoy PGA South Winter Series, and the third time the Battle Bowl has been fought for by the region’s PGA Assistants and Trainees. As the leading Assistant, Fitzgerald walked away with both the winner’s cheque for £444 and a valuable Titleist & FootJoy ball, glove and shoe contract as well.
Thanks to a last hole eagle, Adam Wootton, the 2016 Virgin Atlantic PGA South Order of Merit champion from Oxford Golf Centre, carded a three-under-par 69 to claim second place and a cheque for £301, edging Charlie Beadell’s round of 70 into third for £250.
