Low scoring spectacular at Amateur qualifying

Max Jordan England AmateurMax Jordan claimed his place in the match play stages of the England Amateur Championship in dramatic style. He swept round Scarborough’s South Cliff course in a record-equalling nine-under par, thanks to eight birdies, an eagle and just one, three-putt, bogey. It was 20 shots better than his opening round at Ganton and transformed his golfing fortunes, for his three-over total took him safely into the knock out.

When Jordan (The Golf College and Langley Park) stood on the first tee today his attitude was simple: “I was just going to hit driver everywhere, play some really attacking golf and get as many birdies as I could. I got off to a good start and pushed on from there.”

His only regret? “I missed a 6ft putt for 10-under on the 18th!”
