Our new Junior Club Champion is Thomas Hall who claimed the Gross prize and the Trophy last Wednesday. This event was brilliantly contested with Tom, Sam Storey and Ryan Morrison all together in the last four ball with only one shot between them going into the back nine of this 36 hole event. After scores of 6 over, 6 over and 7 over respectively in driving rain on day one, the 3 ball turned into the back nine at 2 over par each for the front nine. From there, Tom put his foot on the gas pedal then held his nerve after a shaky drive at the 17th to return in 2 under par, level par for the 18 holes to win the tournament by 4 shots. Other notable rounds in the gross competition game from Sarah Wilmore, 6 over par on day one and Hugo Figureido, 5 over par on day two.
The August Cup is presented to the best net scores for Divs1&2, this was dewily won by Jordan Ward pipping Ethan Millan by one point with an overall score for the two days of 77 points. We also have a Division three category for our “stars of the future” and this event was won by one of our newer girls Ellie Monk, closely followed by Jack Hebb and Aiden Millham.
The Club Championships was the third of our Grand Slam of Major events, with the season finally Troon Trophy to be played in October. All events so far have been a great success with 27 to 30 junior turning out on each occasion.
