Cambridgeshire savour success in Midland Golf Union Under-16 Ten Counties Championship
Cambridgeshire earned an impressive victory at the Midland Golf Union Under-16 Ten Counties Championship.
Following the success of the under-14s in their competition, the under-16s headed to The Leicestershire Golf Club looking to seal double delight.
The team was led by Gog Magog’s Jake Plumb, and they did not disappoint. There was a very wet start to proceedings, but that did not deter the Cambs players as they posted six scores under 80 on a difficult par 70 course.
St Neots’ Oliver Toyer shot 72, Plumb hit 72, St Neots’ Harry McDonnell fired 76, the Links’ Theo Morris made 78, Elton Furze’s Sam Marshall recorded 73 and Gog Magog’s Paul Collington returned with 75.
The best five scores counted towards the championship, and it gave Cambs 368 as they beat Worcestershire by three shots.
Team manager Nigel Plumb said: “We are really delighted and proud of the boys. The standard of golf in the county is exceeding all our expectations and the future is looking very bright indeed.”
It has been the strongest ever season for the Cambridgeshire Area Golf Union, with six major inter-county wins and victories in various other matches.
CAGU is hosting an introduction event to get into county golf at St Ives Golf Club on October 31 at 3pm.
