Golf: David Higgins in the hunt for big events

  • by NAT SYLVESTER
 

IRISHMAN David Higgins continues to ride the crest of a golfing wave after shooting a 66 to lead the Titleist PGA Play-Offs in Turkey.

Fresh from his recent success in securing his card for the circuit, the 40-year-old is firmly in the hunt for further starts in some of the European Tour’s most lucrative events which a win at Antalya Golf Club’s PGA Sultan Course will guarantee.

Among the prizes at stake include entry to the BMW PGA Championship, plus a place for the top three in the Great Britain & Ireland PGA Cup team to play the United States next year.

However, breathing down the neck of the Waterville Links man is defending champion Richard Wallis (Walmer & Kingsdown), who beat Higgins into second place last year and is a stroke behind following an opening round of four-under 67.

Three shots further back, six players are tied for third, including Gareth Wright, the Glenmuir PGA Professional champion from West Linton.
