Tom Godfrey wins the Worcestershire Schools Championship gross prize with a magnificent 71 at Hollywood G.C.
Tom Godfrey, concentrates hard on the 18th green at Hollywood G.C. before putting out for a par to secure victory in the Worcestershire Schools Golf Championships on 7th April 2014.
His magnificent 71 gross, in very challenging conditions throughout the round, edged Oliver Gough into second place. The competition was very well supported by boys and girls of different ages and handicaps from a number of schools and individual entrants. Hollywood G.C. presented a tough challenge for everyone as it was playing its full length after some torrential downpours during the day. Nevertheless, the course drained off very well and was much enjoyed by all the competitors.
David Noke, The Hollywood Club Captain, presented the prizes whilst well deserved praise was given to Greg Hopkins for organising the whole event, ably supported by Mark Ralphs, County Junior Manager.
The County would like to thank all the teachers and parents for their interest and support for this competition which seems to be growing rapidly in popularity.
The County would also like to thank Hollywood G.C. for their warm hospitality and excellent course preparation in advance of and during the competition.
Students from over 16 different schools took part, 83 competitors on the day.
