Thomas Thurloway at the Open Championship
Having progressed through final qualifying at Notts Hollinwell Golf Club, Chartham Park member Tom Thurloway secured his place in the Open Championship at Royal Portrush Golf Club earlier in July.
Tom lined up alongside the world’s best players at the world’s biggest tournament.
Tom and his caddy Harry Bayley (also a Chartham Park member) went to Portrush on the Sunday prior to the Open Championship allowing for a few days practice and some valuable time to get used to the impressive and very challenging golf course.
The Chartham Park duo played some holes with Justin Rose, Tommy Fleetwood, Brooks Koepka and Russell Knox over the practice days which would have been a fantastic experience.
In a field of world class players, Tom unfortunately missed the cut but showed great character and resilience despite adverse weather conditions and an extremely tough golf course.
Chartham Park are very proud of Tom and his achievements to date which include his win in the 2018 English Amateur Championship and qualifying for his well deserved place in the 2019 Open Championship!
I’m sure you will join all of us at Chartham Park in wishing Tom continued success for many years to come.
