Golfers face a long drive in the quest for glory

Epsom Golf Club’s David Bright admits he will be treading new ground when he plays in the Golfbreaks.com PGA Fourball Championship next month.
Bright and clubmate Alex Vezey face a 400-mile round trip for the £28,750 final, being held at Forest Pines Hotel and Golf Club in Lincolnshire from October 2.
But Bright is confident the journey will not hinder them.
He said: “Neither of us have played Forest Pines before, it’s a bit of a hike.
“But I’m used to travelling. I was attached to the Miraflores Golf Academy in Spain while doing my PGA training so I had to fly back to England for exams as well as any tournaments I wanted to play in.”
The pair finished second in their qualifying event which was held at Epsom.
Bright added: “Alex is probably more of the player out of the two of us, but we’ll travel up to Forest Pines the day before and have a practice round and hopefully do as well as we did in the qualifying event.”
Leatherhead golfer Michael Lowe with partner Matthew Woods of Donnington Grove, is also taking part.
