In the team event, he paired up with his dad Nick to record a 66, three shots behind the winners, Pyman and John Pollard.

Belt said: “I’m in winter training at the moment and looking towards the Europro Championships on November 13, where the top 50 qualify for the final event of the year.

“I am currently 15th in the order of merit. and I need to finish in the top five to gain a European/Challenge Tour category. “
