Field boys reg­is­ter home­win

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY JC RE­PORTER

GOLF The healthy fu­ture of Jewish golf was shown to its full de­gree when the best young play­ers rep­re­sented their clubs at the Na­tional Ju­nior Bowl held in White­field Golf Club.

The Manch­ester club tri­umphed as the over­all win­ner of the Ju­nior Bowl and were re­warded with the Coombe Hill Tro­phy. The Harts­bourne Tro­phy for best team net was won by Shirley in a com­pe­ti­tion held un­der the aus­pices of the As­so­ci­a­tion of Jewish Golf Clubs & So­ci­eties.

The test­ing White­field course was pre­sented in won­der­ful con­di­tion, but not - with­stand­ing the dif­fi­culty, the weekend saw some truly great per­for­mances. The high­light saw Luke Allen of Shirley claim­ing the Abridge Tro­phy for the best gross with a score of 69. He edged out White­field’s Rob Batch­e­lor by two shots.

The Dun­ham For­est Tro­phy for the best net was won by Alex Howarth of White­field.

He re­turned a score of 63, with Greg Berg of Harts­bourne se­cur­ing the Pot­ters Bar tro­phy for run­ner-up af­ter a card play­off from Luke Allen and Joe Nor­ton of Shirley.

The four­ball scores were just as spec­tac­u­lar, with White­field pair Jordan White - house and Rob Batch­e­lor scor­ing gross 65 to win the Lee Park Tro­phy whilst the Dyrham Park Tro­phy for best net went to Harts­bourne’s Har­ri­son Baum and Josh Burch­hardt.

An AJGCS spokesman said: “The two­day com­pe­ti­tion re­flected the hard work of the Ju­nior or­gan­is­ers of the Clubs tak­ing part and the As­so­ci­a­tion look for­ward to wider sup­port next year.

“Whilst these events are a good in­tro­duc­tion to com­pet­i­tive golf, the As­so­ci­a­tion feels that the friend­ships made will en­hance the strength of Jewish golf as the young­sters tran­scend into se­nior com­pe­ti­tion.

“White­field proved su­perb hosts with not only in re­gard to golf but also their hos­pi­tal­ity through­out the weekend.”
