ST Neots amateur Mark Catling will partner PGA professional Paul Toyer in the Club's bid to win Europe's biggest pro-am competition, the Lombard Trophy.

Catling, who plays off a handicap of 14, earned the chance to play with Toyer after winning the Club qualifying competition with a net score of 70 last month.

The pair will now compete in the regional final at King's Lynn Golf Club, which will follow a better-ball medal play format.

If they are succesful, Catling and Toyer will join the winners of the 15 other regional finals for the Grand Final in Portugal in September. The winning pair will receive £10,000 from a prize fund of over £80,00.
