Our Juniors went to Woodhall Spa GC this week to represent Lincolnshire in the England Golf Junior Club Championships, a 36 hole event played over 2 days on the Bracken course with 2 scores from the team of 3 counting each day. SRGC & Lincolnshire were represented by Hattie Dow, Josh Green & Matt Brewill.
Monday was practise day which went pretty well so we started the competition on Tuesday in a very positive frame of mind turning in a solid performance to finish in 15th place, with Josh leading the way with 34 points and both Hattie & Matt scoring 30 points for an aggregate team score of 64 points.
Knowing the course a little better on Wednesday and also knowing we could play better by focussing and eliminating silly mistakes Hattie & Josh improved their day 1 scores by margins of 6 & 5 shots with Josh being just 1 point less on day 2. Hattie scored 36 points, Matt 35 & Josh 33 for an aggregate score of 71 and a combined total of 135 meaning SRGC & Lincolnshire finished in 8th place overall.
After the event had finished Harvey Harrison, the Lincolnshire President, spoke to Andrew Green who is our Junior Organiser, to congratulate the players and SRGC for their excellent golf over the 2 days, in which SRGC finished in the highest placing for the county for many years in this event.
WELL DONE HATTIE, JOSH & MATT, you performed with great credit and SRGC is very proud of you.
Andrew Green Junior Organiser.
