white tees 36 holes off scratch
On a lovely day at Addington Palace Golf Club a small but quality field took to the course for the2018 Colts Championship, a 36 hole event.
In the morning round three players, Harry Plowman-Ollington, Billy Whiteman and Gabriel Backers came in with the excellent two under par rounds of 69.
After a fine lunch served up by the Club the players made their way to the 1st tee for the afternoon round. Along with most of the field the three leaders found if anything the course tougher during their second round. Billy shot a 73 for a 36-hole final score of level par, Gabriel finished with a 74 for a +1 total with Harry scoring a 72 for a -1 total and the Clubhouse lead.
However, it wasn’t over yet, and Harry found himself in a tie for first spot with Harvey Byers who had shot a two over 73 in the morning round but followed this up with the lowest round of the day, an excellent 68 for a -1 total to match Harry’s score.
With no other players equalling their 36-hole scores the two ex-school and County team mates would be in a sudden death playoff for the Championship. Harvey won the toss and choose to hit first on the par three 1st just missing the green to the right. Harry then hit what looked to be a fine shot onto the green only for the ball to roll just onto the fringe at the back. Harvey played a fine chip to three feet, Harry putted but didn’t quite give his ball enough and came up well short, the missed the putt for a three. Harvey now had a four-footer for the Championship and calmly knocked the ball into the hole to claim the Trophy.
It had been a superb day’s golf with only two shots separating the top five players, two players scored eagles in amongst some great scores on this very tricky but fine course.
Our thanks to Addington Palace Golf Club for hosting this event and presenting the course in superb condition, also thanks to the volunteers who helped make the day a great advert for golf.
Congratulations to Harvey Byers the 2018 Surrey County Colts Champion.
