Bradford duo go so close

First published in News by

Two Bradford golfers just failed in their attempt to win the HowDidiDo National Matchplay Pairs’ Championship in Portugal.

Richard Cooper, from Cleckheaton, a member at Wakefield Golf Club, and Andrew Newby, who plays at East Bierley Golf Club, competed in the event over five of Vilamoura’s Oceanico courses – Old, Laguna, Victoria, Millennium and O’Connor.

They won three of their five rubbers but had to settle for the runners-up spot.

A total of 32 golfers travelled to the finals from as far afield as Inverness and Exeter after fighting their way through qualifying rounds and regional finals during 2011.
