THE LEICESTERSHIRE FOX Sunday 13th August 2017
The 2017 Leicestershire Fox took place in fine weather at its traditional venue of Willesley Park. The event was won by Scott Wormleighton of Birstall Golf Club. Scott had a two round score of 136 to win by one shot from Jordan Boulton (Notts). Cosby Golf Club duo, James Billingham and John Fairbrother shared third place with 138.
