Horton goes for four in a row

Coventry - Europe's leading senior golfer, Jersey Islander Tommy Horton, is going for four wins in a row in the Scottish Life/Ben Sayers Senior Club Professional Championship which begins tomorrow at Coventry Golf Club.

The 54-hole tournament is aimed at British club professionals over the age of 50. The cut comes after 36 holes, and the leading
40 and those tying for 40th place will contest the final 18 holes on Thursday.

Horton, 56, who amassed 158,427 on the European Seniors Tour last year nearly twice as much as the runner-up claimed the scoring would be higher than in 1997, when he carded a 16-under-par 203 to win by nine strokes.

"The greens haven't grown as much as last year, and there's new sand in the bunkers which means a lot more plugged balls," he
said.
