BLAKE WINDRED READY FOR FIRST US AMATEUR

Charlestown golfer Blake Windred is just hours away from the biggest tournament of his life, preparing to make his first appearance at the US Amateur.

Windred is following in the footsteps of fellow Hunter golfer Nick Flanagan, who won the title in 2003, but the 20-year-old says that’s the furthest thing from his mind.

He tees off at the famous Pebble Beach course at 6:30 tomorrow morning, our time.
