LONG-TIME Skipton Golf Club member Alistair Coy has at last swung his way to success in Peter Robinson’s Professional’s Day tournament.

Savouring the bragging rights after carding 39 Stableford points to head Division 1, he noted: “It has taken me 30 years to win Pete’s Professional Day and very funny because I did it using my daughter Sarah’s clubs!”

In a large field, Jeremy Harding and Tony Lascelles finished second and third in Division 1, both with 39 points, though Division 2 winner and runner-up, Alex Topper and Robert Dixon, both returned with 42 points, George Barclay finishing third on 41.

Peter himself is one of the country’s longest-serving PGA club professionals, having held the reins at Skipton since 1992. He turned pro aged just 18, is a former Yorkshire PGA captain and served as president in 2011/12, also representing the county team on many occasions.

His skills have nurtured the talents of both young, aspiring golfers and countless others looking to improve their game. Peter runs his own well-stocked pro’s shop and can be contacted on 01756 795657 ext 3, option 2.

Also catching the eye with a hole in one on the 16th in the Mid-Week Stableford was Neil Anderton, which helped him finish runner-up.
