The Crockett brothers success at the English Schools' National Golf Championships.


Charlie Crockett and his younger brother Harry, students at Oxted School, had a fantastic day at the tough, Seve Ballesteros designed, Shire London Golf Club, on Monday 25th June in the English Schools' National Golf Championships.

 

Charlie was the only boy to play to par, with two rounds of 72 and he won the Championship by one shot from Ben Schmidt of Penistone Grammar School, Yorkshire, with brother Harry, who is only 16yrs old, a further shot behind finishing in 3rd place with rounds of 72 and 74.

 

Charlie had a stunning start to his morning round, achieving a hole-in-one with his very first shot of the day at the 175yds par 3 first hole.

Both boys have now qualified to represent English Schools in International matches against Scotland and Wales during August and September and is probably a "first" to have two brothers playing in the same English Schools Golf team.

 

An outstanding achievement for the Crockett family and we wish them well.
