Aboyne Golf Club is celebrating after one of its young players put the club firmly on the national golfing map winning the finals in Portugal this week of the coveted 2017 Titleist Footjoy Matchplay Championships.

Playing in a series of regional qualifying rounds, Aboyne’s Dominic Bradburn won four consecutive knockouts across North-East Scotland before securing his place on the Algarve this week by winning the Scottish regional qualifier at Irvine Golf Club in October.

Played at the luxurious 5-star Vale Do Lobo golfing resort near Faro, which has hosted the Portuguese Open, Dominic competed in the 4-round stableford finals this week against the eight-other regional low-handicap qualifiers.

Dominic said “It was the first time I have entered the competition and a real surprise and honour to qualify from Scotland and represent my club and country. To then go and win the finals in Portugal against some very competent golfers was unbelievable. The setting at Vale Do Lobo was amazing and the courses were tough requiring a lot of course management, particularly the third-round played in atrocious rain and wind, it was very testing but that is what you would expect from a final. I managed to hold it all together and was delighted to secure the title. It is such a great feeling and I have received unbelievable support from Aboyne Golf Club and my fellow golfers here in the North East.”

David Hughes, Tournament Director of the European Amateur Golf Tour said “Now in its 22nd year, this annual tournament attracted over 1,000 entrants from across the UK with the prize to qualify for the finals in Portugal. Dominic played extremely well over the 4-rounds consistently scoring 31, 34, 32 and 34 and amassing 131 points to take the title by 7 points from his nearest rival. He handled the pressure very well and earned the respect of his fellow players. He has a bright future ahead of him. We are delighted for Dominic and hope to see him back next year to defend his title.”
