U12 County Championship
at Milford GC
Sunday 20 May
18 holes Scratch
With a full field of nearly 60 players the Surrey U12 County Championship, the Paul Casey Trophy, took place on a beautiful May Sunday afternoon at Milford Golf Club. With players as young as 7 years old taking part the future of Surrey junior golf was clearly on display.
The format for the Championship is 18 holes stroke play, in addition to this main competition there were handicap prizes and a putting competition. Max Reid (Windlesham) won the putting on countback from Luke Jones (Cuddington) in second, both players scoring 24 strokes, and Harry Garnett (Bramley) in 3rd two strokes further back.
The handicap prize was won by Caled Strauss (Farnham) with a nett 57, with Joe McSweeney (Farnham) in 2nd with a 60 and Reggie Fear in 3rd with a 63.
Onto the main competition of the day the scratch Championship, and what a close competition we had with only one shot separating the top three players!
Two Cuddington players Kris Kim and Fredrick Gannon both shot 78’s with Kris just pushing his Club mate into 3rd on countback.
The 2018 Championship was won by Leo Vorobyev of Windlesham with a fine 77 and this with a quadruple on the par three 12th! But impressively Leo kept his composure and didn’t let it affect him finishing with a superb birdie on the 18th to avoid a three way tie and a play off.
Everyone then headed back to the clubhouse for the presentation of the prizes. Chobham Captain Roger Smith said a few words of welcome to all and presented the putting and handicapped prizes, Terry Casey then presented the Championship prizes.
My thanks to Milford Golf Club for hosting the Championship, making everyone feel so welcome and presenting the course in good condition. Also a big thank you to all the volunteers who spent the day on the course helping make it such a wonderful day for junior golf and a wonderful day it was.
Congratulations to Leo Vorobyev for winning the 2018 Surrey U12 Championship.
