Brampton Park amateur Keith Bottomley, who lives in Huntingdon, and his club's PGA professional Alasdair Currie are chasing golfing glory in Europe's biggest pro-am competition, the Lombard Trophy.

The pair tee off in the regional final on June 21 at King's Lynn Golf Club, with a luxury five-day trip to Portugal up for grabs if they can beat the competition in the better-ball medal-play.

Bottomley, 35, earned the chance to partner Currie by winning the club qualifying competition with a nett score of 70.

The Lombard Trophy annually attracts more than 100,000 golfers from across Great Britain and Ireland and, with an £80,000 prize fund, is Europe's largest and most prestigious pro-am event.
