Fenwick wins third Highland Golf Links Pro Am
NEIL Fenwick came out on top at the Highland Golf Links Pro Am to win the tournament for a third time.
The Dunbar Golf Club member was tied at the top with Jamie McLeary and Lloyd Saltman on -9 after 54 holes at Castle Stuart Golf Links, The Nairn Golf Club and Royal Dornoch Golf Club.
But due to a better score at Castle Stuart, Fenwick picked up the sponsor’s additional prize of a collectors’ item bottle of Tomatin 50-year-old single malt valued at over £10,000.
Fenwick, who has won the event twice previously, said: “I’m delighted with the win in one of my favourite events.
"The courses were fantastic."
He said the prize will be passed to his three-year-old son Louie as an investment.
The winning team for the week was East Herts A Team made up of David Warburton, Michael Benjamin, Gavin McFadyen and pro Daniel Field.
More than 50 teams from across the UK, as well as from Europe and the USA, took part in the annual event which is one of the richest on the PGA in Scotland Tour.
Amateur players included BBC journalist and broadcaster Naga Munchetty, Sky Sports reporter Sarah Stirk and talkSPORT radio host Georgie Bingham.
PGA professional and BBC golf reporter Alan Tait, the MC for the prizegiving, captained the Castle Stuart team which also featured BBC golf correspondent Iain Carter.
