SURREY U18 & U14 ROOKIE LEAGUE FINALS 2017
Sunday 10th September
PYRFORD GOLF CLUB
After qualifying via playing Zone matches, then winning through the quarter and semi finals the U18 teams from Cuddington and Wentworth (the holders) and the U14 teams from Camberley and Pine Ridge gathered at Pyrford Golf Club on a cloudy and damp September afternoon.
The playing format of Four Ball Better Ball the U18 final were started by past Surrey President Terry Christy, these two matches were followed by the U14 final.
In the 18’s the first match was won by Cuddington’s Austin Gambel & Dexter Daly who beat Wentworths Justin Chan & Joshua Balson-Scales. In the second pairings Wentworth’s Jack Kurzberg and Jamie Bark won at the 18th to level the match. This meant that the first pairings had to go out in a sudden death match which took until the 2nd extra hole for Cuddington to win. This had been a very tight final, as would be expected.
The U14 final followed a similar route with Camberley Heaths Thomas Bates & Callum Long winning against Pine Ridge’s Ava Bates & Daniel Prince. Then Pine Ridge’s Charlotte Benford & Evan Taylor won their match against Eashan Bhasin & Yuvraj Gandhi to force another sudden death play off. Once again the first pairings went back out and Camberley Heath won at the first extra hole.
Our many thanks to Pyrford Golf Club, and their members, who have again hosted the quarter finals, semi finals and the finals for us.
Finally congratulations to;
