Shirley shines at National Junior Bowl

July 29, 2010

Shirley won the coveted Hartsbourne Trophy at the National Junior Bowl.

The West Midlands club tied with Lee Park under the regular format of four out of six scores counting but when all six scores were taken into account, Shirley triumphed by one shot.

Lee Park took home the Potters Bar Cup as runner-up.

Organised under the auspices of the Association of Jewish Golf Clubs & Societies alighted at Shirley Golf Club,
the competition is an important fixture in the calendar for the next generation of golfers emerging from clubs within the Association, as it affords the younger players an opportunity to experience competitive medal play under tournament pressure. Seven clubs entered teams of six players, boys and girls.

Abridge claimed the Whitefield Trophy for the best team net with runners-up Coombe Hill taking the
Dyrham Park Cup.

Glenn Senior of Lee Park returned the best gross score of 73 to land the Abridge Trophy. He held off the challenge of Coombe Hill's Gareth Blease to win by three shots.

A round of 66 from Abridge's Oliver Boxall saw him claim the Shirley Trophy for the best individual net score.

Teammate Aaron Dias won the Dunham Forest Trophy with a score of 70.
