Lofty fin­ish for King’s ace Remy

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - SI­MON CARTER

ENG­LAND squad young golfer Remy Miller fin­ished in a su­perb fourth place in the pres­ti­gious, Mid­lands U16 Boys Open Stroke Play Cham­pi­onship at Hawk­stone Park.

The King’s School Mac­cles­field GCSE stu­dent, who plays his golf at both Tyther­ing­ton and Prest­bury golf clubs, was com­pet­ing against the cream of the coun­try’s young golfers with 90 of Eng­land’s high­est ranked play­ers tee­ing off in this three round cham­pi­onship.

Com­pe­ti­tion was fierce and a num­ber of sub par rounds were recorded dur­ing the Cham­pi­onship.

Remy was sat­is­fied with his first round score of 73, +1, which in­cluded four birdies, on the chal­leng­ing 6,497 yard, Hawk­stone course.

Tied fourth, he moved into round two on the Cham­pi­onship course. Af­ter mak­ing a solid front nine, he un­char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally drove into the trees on the par four, 13th , re­sult­ing in a dis­ap­point­ing triple bo­gey seven.

How­ever, show­ing great men­tal strength, he put the bad shots be­hind him and im­me­di­ately fought back with a birdie on the 14th to re­duce the dam­age and con­tain the score in the sec­ond round to 75, +3.

Drop­ping to 12th place, with a cu­mu­la­tive +4 for two rounds and seven shots be­hind the leader on -3, Remy eas­ily made the cut as the top 40 boys pre­pared them­selves for bat­tle the fol­low­ing day.

Con­di­tions were tough on the fi­nal round, which saw com­pe­ti­tion lead­ers quickly fall­ing back.

Two over par for the front nine, Remy dug deep and pro­duced four birdies and a sin­gle bo­gie on the back nine, giving him a fi­nal round score of -1, club house leader at +3 for three rounds.

How­ever, as the fi­nal groups came in, three scores pushed Remy off top spot and into a very cred­itable tied fourth.
