Last week saw John Jacobs go down to Cornwall for the annual Cornish festival held by the PGA; the format was a 3 day Pro-Am played over probably the 3 toughest courses in Cornwall. The team consisted of John Jacobs, his son Alex Jacobs and Ali and his brother Charlie James. The first test of the week was at Carlyon Bay golf club, the weather was beautiful and there was little wind so scoring was good, with our own pro Laurie Canter shooting a 65 (-7), taking him to the top spot on the first day! There was a webcam on the 1st tee which proved to be a good laugh watching John and his team to tee off. The second day proved to be a lot tougher with the wind up and the greens fast, St Endoch proved to be a hard test for all golfers. The final day was at Trevose Golf Club and the weather was cold but there was little wind, but the course still proved tough for golfers. Laurie Canter finished solo second missing out by one. John and his team thoroughly enjoyed the week even though the golf wasn't the best!
