Wellow Junior Section JULY 2017
Our Grass Roots competition took place on Monday 19th June. It was won by Flynn Stevens and Feddie Leigh. Our thanks go out to Malcolm Calvert for donating the prizes
The June Junior Medal was won by Lewis Sutton with a nett score of 65.
Our 2nd round match in the Poppy Golf competition against Stoneham , took place on Sunday 11th June. Stoneham won the match by 6 holes. We were beaten by a very experienced team and we wish them well in the next round.
The standard of play was high, despite the added pressure of yearlong bragging rights within the club. The juniors especially showed their spirit for the competition. Junior captain Lewis Sutton and last year’s Captain Zak Leigh both played well and will have their handicaps reduced as a result, with Zak shooting a very impressive 77, seven under his handicap on Saturday.
Zak went on to Win the Junior’s Top Prize , Congratulations
RICK ZHOU SHINES IN THE MENS CHAMPIONSHIP
The eventual winner of the Men’s Trophy was Billy Ray. Billy, who holds a handicap of 1, finished on top with a total gross score of 143, ONLY four strokes ahead of future Wellow Star, junior, Rick Zhou (4 handicap).
The two were paired together on both days and with multiple birdie exchanges and mixed fortunes for each player around the greens, resulted in an exciting and well contested finish to the championship. Rick continues to show his talents and after the weekends play and firmly established himself as certain future favorite for the competition.
A programme is being put together to hold competitions for the junior players over the School summer holidays. A roll up system will take place on Monday afternoons when competitions will be held for the CONGU handicap players and the Academy players. This will keep the junior section active in the holiday season and help with them achieving handicaps.
