Surrey’s U18 Champion Ben Partridge (Epsom GC) has won the England Golf Champion of Champions
event over the Red course at Frilford Heath. The day was also Ben’s 18th birthday, what better way to celebrate!!
Ben had held a two-shot lead after a fine opening three under par 69 and was chased all the way by several players, briefly being caught Matt Millar who shot a closing six under 66. But Ben held his nerve, carding birdies on the 16th and 17th
to claim a narrow one-shot victory on five under par 139.
The last Surrey player to claim this title was Greg Payne in 2011 who tied with three other players.
Congratulations to Ben, we know you’ve had a great birthday!
