2016 Glenbervie Open Mixed Foursomes Prize-Winners

The 2016 Glenbervie Open Mixed Foursomes competition was played on Sunday, 24th July, a day when the weather was mixed at best and horrible at times.   So credit to all the players who battled the course and the elements on the day.  

Congratulations to the competition winners, Kim Horne (Dalmahoy GC) and Kevin Messer (Baberton GC), who returned a very credible net score of 71.5, two strokes ahead of Glenbervie pair, Anne and Martyn Richards.  Glenbervie did however provide the winners of the best scratch score in Helen Goodwin and Gordon Nelson.

Bobby Rushford Graduation and Assistant Of The Year Award

A few weeks back, Glenbervie's Bobby Rushford attended his PGA Graduation ceremony at the University of Birmingham. Bobby's graduation was the culmination of 3 years of coursework and exams as part of the PGA degree programme, and means that he is now an official member of the Professional Golfers Association. There were over 100 graduates attending the ceremony along with guest of honour, (Ryder Cup great) Bernard Gallagher OBE, who handed out the official certificates.

As well as picking up his graduation certificate, Bobby also finished 2nd in the Assistant of the Year Awards for the whole of the UK. (Keir McNicol from Gullane GC finished first). The awards are sponsored by Titliest and are based on the results of the year long course work and final exams.  Bobby received his award from Titleist brand director Matthew Johnson.   The photograph below shows Bobby alongside Matthew Johnson, PGA Captain Nicky Lumb, and Bernard Gallacher.

Many congratulations to Bobby on both his graduation and his Assistant Of The Year Award - very well deserved.

PS.  For those that may not know, around a decade ago in the amateur home international series, Bobby went toe-to-toe with a certain Englishman called Danny Willett - I wonder whatever became of him !
