GOLF: BRANDON resident Paul Dixon shot himself into the record books at his local course with a round of 67, beating the club’s previous record.
The 45-year-old, who plays off a plus one handicap, wrote his name into the course history books for a second time after breaking his own course record.
He achieved the score on his way to winning the Club Championship, which added to an already successful year for the Brandon player after he qualified for the UK Public Golf Course Championships at St Andrews on October 1.
“When I knew I’d broken the record I was over the moon,” Dixon said.
“You always want to better yourself in any sport, so I’m more than happy with breaking the course record.”
Paul played at St Andrews as part of the national tournament last year, finishing third in the gross competition, and is hoping to improve again this time.
He said: “I’m going to go to St Andrews with high hopes, but golf is a funny game, you just have to produce the goods on the day.”
