Last week at the R&A Senior Amateur Championship played on the West Links at the historic North Berwick Golf Club, our own John Ambridge of Moor Park performed with distinction to finish in a tie for 4th place after 54 holes.
John returned rounds of 71, 71 and a last round of 67 which rocketed him up the leaderboard, for a total of 209 (-7) for the event, only 2 shots off the winning score.
John ended up the highest place European in the field with most of the top spots taken by US players.
The winner of the event was an American, Craig Davis, after a playoff with his countryman, Gene Elliott, after they had tied on 207 (-9).
Congratulations to John on his excellent performance which could stand him in good stead in terms of selection for the England Men's Seniors Team for the Senior Home International matches later this year.
