Impressive first day score secures crown

HENLEY Golf Club added a new name to their men’s championship trophy last weekend as Brad Young triumphed.

HENLEY Golf Club added a new name to their men’s championship trophy last weekend as Brad Young triumphed.

Young, a four handicapper, joined Henley in 2007 from Mid Kent Golf Club and claimed the honour after 36 holes. His score of 69 on the Saturday did all the damage to the opposition ending up with a four shot lead over past winner Guy Phillips, Chris Maxted and Dave Lawrence.

This cushion was crucial for the second round on Sunday and although dropping a shot on the first hole he played steady golf paring the next 10 holes to close the competition out with an overall score of +3 (143).

Defending champion Marcus Lovelock gave a fighting defence of his title with a level par 70 (147) to take third spot one shot behind runner-up Maxted. Marcel Petrie was fourth with +9 (149) on countback from Phillips.

The Young family had cause for a double celebration as on the same day Brad’s brother James won the Mid Kent Golf Club trophy.



The ladies’ section held the monthly medal in conjunction with the Norton Cup where Clare Dodds was successful in Division 1 with a net 70 which was a shot better than runner-up Sally Woolven.

Rachel Hall, Suzy Smith and Norma Read were third, fourth and fifth respectively with net 74s.

Ladies’ captain Jacqui McCourt claimed Division 2 with a net 69 which was a shot better than Gill Mitchell. Ngairy Palin was third with a net 74. However the winner of the Norton Cup came from the third division where Josie Heayns recorded a net 67 to take the trophy and the division. Jane Packham and Alison Weir were second and third respectively with net 72s whilst the same score won Division 4 for Gilly Hudson which was a shot better than runner-up Noelle Morgan.
