Schools’ Championship at Cuddington G.C. 3rd July 2017
52 boys and 10 girls enjoyed their day off school competing in the annual Surrey Schools’ Championships held this year in glorious weather in the delightful surroundings of Cuddington.
The girl’ champion was 3 handicapper Chloe Burdon of Lingfield College and the boys’ champion Enrique Dimayuga of St. Andrew’s, Leatherhead, a member of Cuddington, playing off scratch.
Handicap winners were Sarah Wilmore (4) of Collingwood College, and Charlie Crockett (1) of Oxted School. The Girls’ Team trophy was won by Collingwood College and the Boys’ by St. Andrew’s.
The finish of the boys’ event was spectacular. Enrique Dimayuga and Charlie Crockett, playing together, had shown in their first nine that they meant business with Enrique scoring a 4 under par 32 and Charlie only one shot behind. Charlie birdied the next three holes to move ahead . Enrique fought back and they came to the 420 yard 18th hole level at 7under par. Here they both hit the green with short iron approaches and had similar putts for birdie. Charlie’s effort from 27 feet finished an agonizing six inches short. He had beaten the course record but held it for a mere minute and a half before Enrique holed his 24 footer for birdie and 8 under.
Both boys are to be congratulated for magnificent golf and for a finish of which world class professionals would have been proud.
