Hull clinch narrow victory in Junior League Final

During the year five clubs have been competing in the Junior League culminating in the top three clubs progressing to the final at Ganton on Sunday 15th September. Those three clubs were Hull, Scarborough North Cliff & Cottingham Parks who replaced Brough, sadly they could not raise a team due to players with work commitments.

 

The day started off bright with a slight breeze, however during the afternoon it changed with light rain, but playing conditions were still reasonably good. Those spectators were in for a treat with some spectacular golf being played by all the players from the white tees. At half-way it was obvious that it was very close between Hull and Scarborough NC so it was all going to be down to the tough back nine of Ganton!

 

What a climax we had in store with the players gathering along with the spectators at 18 green to watch the final group of Will Storr (Hull), Jack Northgraves (Scarborough NC) and Cooper Becks (Cottingham Parks) coming down the 18th. Will’s drive was central fairway with a good shot to the green, however he left it short. Jack was tight left blocked out slightly by the trees so had to draw his second round the trees which he did again about 30 yards short of the green. Both chipped onto the green within putting range, Jack sadly missed for a 5 and Will holed his putt to tie the scores. This culminating in the final scores as follows:

 

The best gross went to Tom Benson with 40 points, this was a terrific score around a very tough course at any time.

 

The winning team was decided on the team back nine with Hull GC coming out the winners with 51 points to Scarborough NC 45 points.

 

Congratulations to Hull Golf Club on retaining the Rob McLeish Trophy for the second year, but also congratulations must go to all players on making the final a memorable one with some brilliant golf shots being witnessed.
