Boys U16 / U14 Championships
We had 26 entries for the U14 Boys Championship played at Middlesbrough GC on a sunny, but again cool day in parts. The leader after round one was Archie Greenwood-Jowett with a good score of 73 with Ganton duo George Walker and Ben Staveley in hot pursuit 2 shots behind. Tom Hartshorne played exceptional golf with 3 birdies and 1 bogey to record a 68, 2 under. This was the best score of the day, and it was 7 shots better than any others in the afternoon, so thus taking the title by four shots from Archie and five from George.
We had 33 entries for the U16 Championship and the morning produced some spectacular golf from Jonty Butcher (Ganton) to card a 67, three under with Harry Phillips (Bingley St Ives) a 70 and then Spencer Gill, brother of Bailey Gill shooting a 72 so all set for a great afternoon. Jonty got off to a bad start with going out in 3over. Harry was playing some steady golf to finish with a 2over 72 and take the title. Jonty had another 3bogeys on the back nine to card a disappointing 76 to finish second with Spencer shooting another 72 for a total of 4over to come third.
