Click here for final scores in the European Men’s Club Trophy 10 Nov 2017 European podium place for City of Newcastle trio The three-man team from City of Newcastle Golf Club flew the flag for England with a podium place in a European championship.Northumberland county champion Phil Ridden and team-mates Mark Wharton and Alex Dixon and won the bronze medal at the European Men’s Club Trophy in one of the best-ever performances by an English club.“It was fantastic, it was such a good experience,” said Wharton. “We’re not full-time golfers, we’re all working hard so it was nice to get a taste of that type of championship.”The event was played at the Golf du Médoc Resort in Southern France and contested by 24 teams from across Europe. The title was won in runaway style by Racing Club de France La Boulie, who were 12-under par and claimed the title for the fifth time, making them the most successful club in the history of the event.Meanwhile, the English challengers were locked in a close battle with Galway, representing Ireland, and were eventually pipped for the silver medal by just one stroke.However, their bronze medal is one of the best-ever results for England, since Ealing GC won in 1989 and 1990 and Brokenhurst Manor took the title in 1988. “We’d love to try and do it again,” said Wharton.The trio, who are all county golfers, booked their place in the championship when they won the English Champion Club tournament in September.The final round at East Devon Golf Club was much delayed by fog – and similar weather also affected the last round of the European championship. “It follows us around,” laughed Wharton.
