l Leicestershire PGA has completed the opening half of the 2007/8 winter series of pro/am tournaments. Three events have been played so far, with another three fixed for the coming months.
Current Order of Merit leader is Craig Shave (Whetstone), a former Lutterworth GC assistant.
Shave has notched 39 points so far, with tour pro Matthew Cort, who lives in the town, on 24 points, second.
Gary Coysh (Cosby), also a former Lutterworth assistant, and Rick Adams (Discovery Golf) are tied third with 14 points each.
Cort was runner-up in the second pro/am of the series. This was in the low scoring event at Glen Gorse. He shot 6-under-par-66, but winner there, Warwick Stevens (Bramcote), carded a remarkable 10-under-62 to win.
In round three at Beedles Lake GC, Cort shot 1-under-69 to be third.
The first pro/am of the second half was due to be played this week at Park Hill, weather permitting, with one at Kilworth Springs in February, and the climax is at Scraptoft GC in March.
