Ward Trophy / August Medal for Juniors (14th August, 2021)

Junior Section Competition Results

REPORT

Although there were no entries for the 18 hole competition, the 9 hole competition was well represented. This competition is slightly unusual in that the Ward Trophy is awarded to the overall winner, and the August Medal to the runner-up. As there was no 18 hole competition, the Trophy and Medal winners came from the 9 hole competition.

The Junior Section has impressively increased in numbers this year, beyond pre-Covid19 levels. In addition there have been, to date, a total of 19 junior members competing in competitions, with 10 different winners.

The winner of the Ward Trophy was again a new junior member, Lewis Foxall, with a very impressive nett 24. Lewis follows in his brother Harrison’s footsteps as a competition winner this season! Runner-up, and winner of the August Medal was Spencer Picken with a nett 28 – a score which would have won most competitions this season!!

The 9 hole, blue course, competitions are a great introduction to the junior section and a way of meeting other members. (This applies to parents as well!!). Any junior who has not entered so far is more than welcome – the next competition being the Norman Turner Trophy on 28th August. Tee times can now be booked on BRS.

Duncan Evans Trophy for Juniors (7th August, 2021)

REPORT

Due to Covid jabs, family holidays, double bookings (ie. normal school summer holiday issues!!!) entries for both the 18 hole and 9 hole competitions were lower than normal. As there were no entries for the 18 hole competition, the decision was made that the winner of the 9 hole competition would also be the recipient of the Duncan Evans Trophy.

In the 9 hole competition, all nett scores were below par, which is a reflection of the improvements in standard of golf by all the ‘blue tee’ group in the junior section. I’m pleased to say the competition winner of the 9 hole competition and the Duncan Evans Trophy is one of our newer members Oliver Carter – well done Oliver!

Grenville Freeman Trophy for Juniors (17th July, 2021)

Junior Section Competition Results - Grenville Freeman Trophy for Juniors (17th July, 2021)

The Grenville Freeman Trophy for juniors was an unusual junior competition – it was sunny and hot for an entire day, and not a drop of rain!!

The senior 18 hole group playing for the main trophy saw the Junior Captain, Corey Wentworth, win his first trophy of the season with 32 points (including a birdie 2 on the 7th, and Peter Malkin runner-up on 29 points.

The 9 hole competition, playing off blue tees, witnessed some excellent scores from our promising group of young golfers. Out of an entry of 10 players, 5 scored nett par or below, and nearly all the players were below their season average.

The winner of the 9 hole competition was Spencer Pickin with an impressive nett 28 (49-21). Oliver Vincent was runner up with a nett 32 (59-27) along with Theo Khalifa, also scoring a nett 32 (46-14). A new member of the group, Oliver Carter scored a very respective nett 39 in his first official club competition.

Captain's Day for Junior - 26th June 2021

Junior Section Competition Results - Captain’s Day for Juniors (26th June, 2021)

REPORT

‘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.
