Junior Section Competition Results - Captain’s Day for Juniors (26th June, 2021)
‘Captain’s Day for Juniors’ on Saturday was hosted by the Captain, Arthur Doherty. A tremendous entry of 16 junior members in total competed for 18 hole stableford and 9 hole medal competitions. Prizes were awarded to 1st & 2nd in the ‘older’ section together with nearest the pin on 7th hole, and 1st, 2nd, 3rd in the ‘younger’ section also with nearest the pin in 2 on the 7th hole.
In the ‘older’ section, we have considerably fewer players, but they are returning good scores off the white tees. Harrison Foxall was the winner of the Captain’s Prize with a score of 36 points, with Peter Malkin runner up with 31. Peter was also the winner of the ‘nearest the pin’.
The ‘younger’ section is getting stronger as the season progresses, and all the juniors are returning very consistent scores. The two leading scores were excellent, with Spencer Pickin finishing second with a 4 under par score of 32. However the winner with a brilliant 6 under par score of 30 was Elliott Leake, recording his first junior win. In third place, competing in her first junior competition, was Grace Pennington with a great score of 37. The winner if the ‘nearest the pin’ was Theo Khalifa (3.24m)
Not only are the numbers increasing in the junior section, but we also have 3 girls competing (and winning prizes!!). Hopefully this will encourage others in the future.
I would like to thank the Captain for providing the prizes, and hosting a meal after the competition. Arthur has also generously donated a new trophy for the 9 hole competition to supplement the main Captain’s Prize, and Elliott Leake is the first recipient of this trophy.
