Dinnaton golf manager and professional Paul Hendriksen clinched a place in the PGA Play Offs in Turkey in December after holding on to his third place in the Race to Woodbury Park order of merit.

However, it was a close call as Jon Bevan (Wessex Golf Centre, Weymouth) closed to within 12 points in fourth place after taking the Woodbury title by two shots for his second order of merit win this season.

Dorset’s Lee Thompson (Dudsbury) was second behind Welshman Matt Dearden (The Vale Hotel). The trio represent the West in the Titleist PGA Play Offs to be held over the PGA Sultan course at Antalya in Turkey from December 10-13.

The leading players can expect to get starts in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth and feature in other European Tour and Challenge Tour events next season.

The Race to Woodbury Park order of merit event devised by Woodbury-based West Region PGA secretary Glenn Ross and supported by Woodbury owners Robin and Sue Hawkins brought together the best players in Wales and the West.

Mrs Hawkins, who made the presentations, said: “It was another wonderful tournament with some outstanding golf played in superb weather. We were delighted with the low scoring and the kind comments from the players about the course and all our facilities.”Leading final scores: 1st,135, Jon Bevan (Wessex Golf Centre), 64, 71, £2,000; 2nd, 137, Stuart Little (Minchinhampton), 71, 66, £1,042; 3rd, Sion Bebb (Vale Hotel), 70, 67, £1,042.
