Storry Thrower will get the chance to live life in the fast lane after a fine year at Goodwood.

The nine handicapper lifted the club’s inaugural order of merit competition after his consistent displays across 10 club events at the West Sussex complex.

But rather than a glittering trophy or an oversized cheque for leading home the rest of the members, Thrower won an exhilarating Porsche driving experience at the famous Silverstone racing circuit. Thrower said: ‘I can’t wait to go up to Silverstone and get behind the wheel of the different Porsches.

‘I am thrilled to have won the first order of merit.

‘When the competition was launched – and the prize announced – I was certainly eager to play well and it really added to the competitive spirit.’

Golf At Goodwood joined forces with the Mid Sussex Porsche Centre, who host their annual golf day over the award-winning Downs Course, to offer the winner a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to compete at the historic circuit.

Stuart Gillett, general manager, said: ‘It is fabulous to have the support of the Mid Sussex Porsche Centre, who also sponsor our members’ invitation day.

‘To be able to give our members something unique is what we are all about here at Goodwood and in its first year the order of merit was a great success.’
