Bushey amateur golfer wins regional round

A golfer from Bushey has won the regional final of the world’s largest amateur golf tournament

Patrick Healy from Bushey, finished top of the pile in the 2018 Audi quattro Cup, the world’s largest amateur golf tournament, at Woburn in Buckinghamshire.

Patrick, together with his playing partner, Stuart Hattrick, drove to victory in an 18-hole stableford tournament – one of seven regional finals.  

Almost 2,000 players teed up in the qualifiers across the UK.  The pair had been whittled down to the final 36, representing their local centres, Watford Audi and Hatfield Audi.

Victory in the regionals is the first step on an exciting journey that could lead to glory in the UK final at Bowood Golf & Country Club, Calne, Wiltshire, from September.  

This could ultimately lead to the big prize at the world final in Kitzbühel, Austria, from September 23 to 27.

Patrick said: “It was so exciting to win the regional final. I can’t wait for the UK final and will be working on my chipping and putting down at my local Sandy Lodge Golf Club to perfect my game before the big UK final in September.”

Established in 1991, the Audi quattro Cup is a global tournament, which involves more than 80,000 competitors from 42 countries hoping to progress to the world final.

The UK hopes to go one better on 2017, when two British golfers, Melissa McMahon and Jon Ball, finished second in the world final at the Quivira Golf Club, Mexico, missing out on overall victory by a single point on the last hole to a team from Japan.  

The outstanding performance was the best result ever by a UK team in the 27-year history of the Audi quattro Cup. Melissa’s finish was the highest ever by a UK female player.
