A STRONG field will take part in The PGA in Hampshire’s Weybrook Park Pro-Am on Friday.

Jon Barnes, who won The PGA in Hampshire’s Order of Merit last season, is scheduled to play along with four others in the current top ten.

Barnes has made a good start in 2016 and lies fifth with Mark Dawe (second) and Martin Adams (third) among those heading to the Basingstoke course.

Chris Hudson (eighth) and the experienced Gary Stubbington (ninth) will also be looking to move up the rankings.

Weybrook Park will be represented by head assistant pro Steven Went.

Scott Coomber of Basingstoke-based Golf Principles and Tadley’s Simon Smith (Leaderboard Golf Ltd) make up the local contingent.
