Schindler takes it to the Max

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -

GOLF MAX Schindler eclipsed a high qual­ity field to take the hon­ours at the South­ern Provin­cial Tour­na­ment at Abridge Golf and Coun­try Club.

Play­ing off a 28 hand­i­cap, Schindler, who is 12 and plays for Dyrham Park, carded a net 65 in a com­pe­ti­tion un­der the aus­pices of The As­so­ci­a­tion of Jewish Golf Clubs & So­ci­eties.

M i c h a e l Charles rep­re­sent­ing Bar­net Jewish Golf So­ci­ety, re­turned an ex­cel­lent gross score of 71, one un­der par, to win the gross prize. He a l s o t o o k home the run­nerup net prize af­ter card play­off, with his score of 67 be­ing matched by Colin Ger­stein of Dyrham Park.

Schindler’s hero­ics helped Dyrham se­cure the Hartsbourne Tro­phy for the low­est ag­gre­gate of four best net scores. Run­ners-up Bar­net JGS claimed the Abridge Tro­phy.

The tour­na­ment is de­signed to en­com­pass the broader mem­bers of the af­fil­i­ated clubs and so­ci­eties in the south­ern area. Teams of six en­ter, with no more than two play­ers hav­ing hand­i­caps below 10 and at least two play­ers with hand­i­caps of more than 15.

As be­fits a venue se­lected to hold a qual­i­fy­ing round for the Open, the Abridge course was pre­sented in prime con­di­tion and proved a stiff test for the com­peti­tors from the nine clubs and so­ci­eties that en­tered.

An AJGCS spokesman said: “Max’s per­for­mance is a sign that the younger gen­er­a­tion are march­ing to take over from their el­ders, which in­cluded his fa­ther, Stephen, play­ing in the same team.”
