Gorleston Golf Club’s David James and James Chadd are celebrating the triumphant conclusion of an epic story of golfing success after beating more than 800 other pairs to win the coveted HowDidiDo championship held at the Vilamoura resort in the Portuguese Algarve.
David James spoke to the Eastern Daily Press: “We did think we had a chance of winning it. Normally I can be quite pessimistic but when we were travelling up to Manchester for the flight I said to James that I had a good feeling about the week. When we won it we were overjoyed. James and I just looked at each other and said ‘job done’.
Gorleston Golf Club has become one of the region’s best-loved sporting facilities, and is encouraging the next generation of golfers to pick up their clubs. James and Chadd will defend their title next year, although due to the rigorous nature of the competition, will have to start again at stage one and fight their way to victory.
