A great day was had at the Team Audio Room vs Team Coyle golf day!

On Sunday 30th October we hosted the inaugural Team Audio Room vs Team Coyle Golf Day, which was in aid of raising funds for our Touring Professional Joe Coyle. The golf day, which was the idea of Darren Bamford (owner of The Audio Room on Savile Street, Hull) was designed around a 27 hole format, with an Individual Stableford in the morning and a nine-hole Texas Scramble after lunch.

There was a great prize table on offer which included a winning team prize for each member of the victorious Texas Scramble team, top three prizes for the Individual Stableford, four nearest to pin plus a straightest drive prize, and most importantly, a glass trophy for the overall winning team contested by Team Audio Room and Team Coyle.

Everyone played the golf in a great spirit and as usual with events here at Burstwick the banter was second to none, with neither of the two teams wanting to go home empty handed. On paper Team Coyle looked favourable with the lower average handicap but when the pressure was on Team Audio Room showed their prowess on the course.

At the half way mark the scores were relatively close at 18-14 to Team Audio Room, but it was all to play for with the afternoon Scramble. The teams of four put in some very low scores in the afternoon game, but the best score came from Sam Bamford, Laura Key, James Lambswood and Kurtis Bird who had a phenomenal 21.8!

All the players came in and enjoyed a delicious two course meal provided by the chefs at Café Nineteen and the prizes were awarded to the players, before the team Captains posed with the trophy.

Over £2,000 Raised for Joe Coyle's Season!

As many will know, Saturday’s golf day and night do was all in aid of raising funds for Joe Coyle, to pay for his season on the Europro Tour.

As Joe earned a full card for the Europro Tour, it will cost around £10,000-12,000 to play all of these events, and as the prize fund matrix on the Europro Tour is heavily weighted to the top end, Joe needs to plan to cover at least 75 per cent of these costs beforehand.

On Saturday Joe hosted a fundraising Am-Am and evening event at Burstwick and managed to raise more than £2,000 for his season, which paired with some recently acquired sponsors means he is well over halfway to achieving his goal.

Joe has expressed that he would like to thank all that supported him on Saturday as without this support he could not go and pursue his dream. Joe can now get back playing some golf and hopefully making himself a successful career!

Joe Coyle earns full card for 2016 Europro Tour

Frilford Heath, Oxfordshire, was the venue for the final stage of Europro Tour qualifying last week, where 240 professional golfers were looking to obtain their Europro Tour card for the season.

Qualification for the Europro Tour is based on how high you finish at the final, with the top 30 and ties gaining a 'full' card, and the further down you place the fewer events you are eligible to enter for. For those who aren't aware, a full card means that you are able to enter all of the season's events.

Joe did very well the previous week at the first stage of qualifying (at Mottram Hall) and took this with him to Frilford as a springboard for confidence. On the first day this showed, when he shot two under par, lying in tied fifth - a fantastic position to be in.

On day two conditions were a little more difficult and the nerves of making the cut (top 80 or so players) were starting to show.

Joe was five over gross after six holes, after making a triple bogey on the par 5 sixth. This could have spelled disaster for Joe's qualification chances but he valiantly regained focus and fought back, making a birdie and 11 pars to shoot a total of +4 for the day, tied for 36th and making the cut comfortably.

On the third and final day Joe felt that he could play a bit more aggressive having made the cut already, and went out to shoot a fantastic 3 under par round for a 54 hole total of -1! This placed tied for 19th, earning him a full card for the season, exempt for all the Europro events; needless to say Joe was absolutely delighted with this.

Earning a full card for the tour is a fantastic achievement for Joe and his team, and we cannot wait to see what the season brings.

Well done Joe!
