Simon in UK finals

BOSTON’S Simon Elkington has taken a step closer to representing Great Britain in the Audi Quattro Cup, the world’s largest amateur golf competition.

The 43-year-old, along with partner Adrain Bothamley (Market Rasen) finished third in the competition’s UK regional final, at the Belfry, Warwickshire, last week, recording 35 stableford points.

They will now compete in the UK final at Bowood, Wiltshire, on September 15, with the top two pairs qualifying for the world finals in China.
