Lytham events

I admit I have been a bit lazy on the old blogging side this week. There has not been too much to write about other than the odd meeting which I am sure nobody would be interested in anyway. This weekend though it is time for the true season opener for major amateur tournaments in the UK when the Lytham Trophy takes place. Nowadays it is coupled with the junior event, the Fairhaven Trophy right next door, played over the same weekend. In other words quite a few golfers, parents and officials join the Bank Holiday travellers to the north west corner of England and one of the great seaside destinations on the golfing map.

When I arrived at Royal Lytham this morning the first guy I met was a European Tour player, Dan Willet. Having missed the cut in PGA Catalunya this week Dan decided to go and support a fellow member of his club by caddying for him the the event. That is what I call support!

Being Saturday already both events in Lytham and St Annes have made it to halfway with the leaders being Dale Whitnell in the Lytham Trophy and Adam Carson in the Fairhaven Trophy. For full results see the below links.
