PGA 2010

The PTS Invitational, the Midland’s golfing event of the season, saw a nail biting race to the finish line after a similar fight for the Invitational Crown in 2009. Coming out on top with a fine 66 was Walmley Golf Club director of golf, Matthew Morris.

Held from the 2nd to 4th June, PTS customers and golf fans enjoyed a gripping finale with a five under par final round, which included six birdies and just one bogey. It was an incredibly close match with both Morris and Kibworth Professional Matthew Cort sharing the lead right up until the 18th hole. However, with Cort making bogey, Morris' par up the last was enough to secure the win with a ten under par total of 203.

Kelvin Stevens, Managing Director of PTS, said: "There is a strong golfing network in the plumbing industry and it's important to us that we support the region that's home to our head office. The competition showcases all the talent the Midlands has to offer and we hope our sponsorship went some way to demonstrating the region's skills to a wider audience through its coverage on Sky Sports. Congratulations to Matthew on a fantastic start to his season."

The PTS Invitational formed the Midlands leg of the famous PGA tournament and also gave customers of the leading merchant the chance to complete a round at the distinguished golf course with the whole event due to be screened on Sky Sports at the end of June. The first PTS Invitational in 2009 saw Craig Shave from Whetstone Golf Club in Leicestershire take home the top title after a close competition. The tournament is held at South Staffordshire Golf Course and sees the winner taking home a cheque of £2,500 and move further ahead in the Midland Order of Merit.
