Schindler takes it to the Max
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.”
