And how about that!

Not much else you can say I think. Two englishmen in the final of the Spanish Amateur – again! Last year Matt Haines defeated Tommy Fleetwood and this year it was time for Laurie Canter to go head to head with Stiggy Hodgson. I am not sure what Laurie did, but he must have played some serious golf. 9 up through the first 18 and with 10 holes to go the two could already shake hands. Laurie had won, 11/10, and secured himself a place in the Spanish Open in May. For the full Spanish version click here. Laurie’s win was England’s fifth in four years starting with John Parry in 2007, Daniel Willet in 2008 and then Matt Haines in 2010 before Canter took over the trophy.

And if this was not enough on a Monday morning – the new England clothing has started to arrive in Woodhall Spa! At the moment some of us wish we had a warehouse rather than an office but things should soon be out with players. Check out our model on the England Golf pages on Facebook!
