Lincolnshire golf pro Adam Keogh wins the English PGA Championship held at Bowood Hotel, Spa and Golf Resort.
Last week, Lincolnshire golf pro Adam Keogh kept a cool head in sweltering conditions to win the English PGA Championship.
The PGA Professional from Woodhall Spa Golf Club posted a course record-equalling nine-under-par round of 63 to establish a seven-shot lead on day one and extended that to eight on day two, going on to claim the £5,000 first prize in the final round. Keogh said:
‘It’s my second visit here and both times have been stunning’ and that ‘ Two years ago I was lucky enough to finish second and have gone one better this year – I love it.’
PGA Captain and previous Ryder Cup Captain, Bernard Gallacher OBE, presented Adam Keogh with the trophy, and due to the impressive winning margin, he jokingly commented “this would have been a good tournament without you”.

Nicky Lawrenson, Director of Golf, was delighted with the success of the event and commented:
‘It has been an honour to be the hosting venue of the 2021 PGA English Championship and working alongside the PGA team.
There was a great atmosphere during the three-day tournament, and it was lovely to see many of our members volunteering as starters, scorers and ball spotters around the course; their support during the week has been invaluable and greatly appreciated.’
