South Eastern Group 2018 Junior Championships
Moor Park Golf Club, 29th May
The 2018 South East Junior Championship event was weather affected this year, with torrential rain and thunderstorms in the afternoon reducing the event to 18 holes from the planned 36-hole competition. The overall competition over a challenging Moor Park course also incorporates an under 16 category.
Essex boys featured prominently in the results, with Michael Gilbert (Chelmsford) taking 2nd place in the overall championship and Harry Moncur (Abridge) finishing 4th.
In the under 16’s event, Rory Bennet (Hainault Forest) finished in a creditable joint 3rd place.
Canons Brook Golf Club, 31 May 2018
Canons Brook Golf Club hosted The Faldo Wedge this year with a maximum entry of 144 Juniors from all around the County. The weather forecast threatened storms so Klaxons were at the ready, however, the morning players set out on time on a very well presented course which proved to be a good test of golf for all players.
The Faldo Wedge consists of morning and afternoon start times. Teams consists of three juniors representing their Club, with all three scores to count from 18 holes of stableford format. The mornings play saw some great golf, with Chigwell Golf Club taking the lunch time lead with a team total of 109 points consisting of Harry Ioannou (38pts), Thomas Atkinson (37pts) & Maura Burns-Zaragoza (34pts). Next best were Playgolf Colchester & Bentley on 106 points and Langdon Hills a further point back on 105.
The afternoon saw a continuation of good scoring, which meant it would be a long tense wait for Chigwell. The first tee time of the afternoon consisted of Stoke by Nayland Golf Club’s Sam Nixon (39pts), Harry English (39pts) & Max Toombs (33pts) who managed a leader board topping 111 points. This meant Chigwell slipped to second place but still with plenty of teams to come in. Thorpe Hall Golf Club’s A & B Teams were next in with their Team B managing to match the leading score of 111 points with a team of girls, Millie May-Penfold (41pts), Abbie Webb (40pts) & Emily Dixon (30pts) just losing out to Stoke by Nayland on Countback. However,Millie May-Penfold’s 41 points was enough to pip Ciara Rushmer (Langdon Hills) on countback for the best individual girl’s score. Congratulations to both girls on excellent performances, a well-deserved handicap reduction will be in store.
The day, however, belonged to Thorpe Hall A, consisting of last years winners, Ali-Abbas Haji, Luke King & Max Webb. The team managed to achieve a four point victory with 115 points. The big score coming from Ali-Abbas with 46 points, which was best individual boys score on the day. Luke managed 35 points and Max followed it up with 34. Not only have Thorpe Hall successfully defended the title they won last year, but they did it with the same team. Congratulations to all three boys.
Our thanks to all the Junior Organisers that do so much for junior golf in the county and to Canons Brook Golf Club for hosting the event and making everyone so welcome.
