Local golfer Simon Healy is set to live the American dream after qualifying for the final of a prestigious tournament.

Simon, from Bamford, booked himself a place in the Audi Quattro World Final which takes place in Los Angeles next month (October 7-11).

The 44-year old will once again team up with his playing partner Tom Ciullo, from Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

The duo finished second overall in the Audi Quattro UK Cup Final at the Bowood Golf & Country Club in Wiltshire earlier this month.

The pair secured their spot in the World Final after scoring 40-points (back 9 score 19) in the one-day, 18-hole “stableford” rules competition.

The tournament’s eventual winners also scored 40 points but ensured they took the UK title by scoring an impressive 23 points on the back-nine.

A keen amateur golfer, Simon had individually finished sixth in the Sheffield & Doncaster Audi Worksop GC event which was held in May, earlier this year.

He then teamed up with Tom, 26, as the duo claimed first place in a Regional Final at the Woodhall Spa GC back in August.

Healy and Ciullo are joined by Audi Quattro UK Cup Final winners Mike Broad and Andrew Witter in representing Great Britain in the World Final, staged at the Trump National Golf Club in LA.
