Golfer Kris Andrews, the overnight leader, won his first PGA North tournament when he captured the James Brearley Lancashire Open at Blackpool North Shore.

But the 31-year-old Ashton-on-Mersey professional revealed that he had felt”in awe” of his playing companion David Shacklady and spent the previousnight wondering how he could outscore him.

“I was a bit nervous because he’s picked up so many titles and I’d neverbeen in this position before,” he explained after beating the Mossock Hall maestro by a shot in a dramatic finish.
