Sherborne’s Tony Lawrence Qualifies For Taiwan

Last week Sherborne’s illustrious golfer Tony Lawrence won the East Anglian Seniors Open Golf Championship held at Richmond Park over two days. Tony shot a first round 67, with a round of 72 the next day to finish 3-under par and win the Championship by 2 shots.  And his success came after winning the pro-am event held the day before the Championship, which shows his consistent good form.

Not only did Tony win first prize, he qualified for the Taiwan Senior PGA Championship in September, this qualification including up to £700 toward the cost of his flights. If Tony does well in Taiwan there will be further opportunities for him in Asia.

Tony Lawrence has been a member of Sherborne Golf Club for many years, winning the Dorset County Championship eight times as an amateur, yet he has always been pleased to play with anyone at the Club, regardless of their ability. When Tony reached 50 years old he turned professional to play Seniors golf among many of the great names of his youth. Sherborne Golf Club wishes him all the very best for his success in Taiwan.
