College’s golf team in national finals
The first round of the Independent Schools Golf Association national finals took place at Princes Golf Club, Kent last weekend. George, Toby and Will represented the College among the best golfing schools and academies in the country. They received their trophy for winning the area round, reached the finals and enjoyed two rounds in very contrasting conditions. On the Sunday they played at Princes Golf Club in a stiff wind and wet conditions, followed by round 2 at The Open 2020 and world famous Royal St George’s in the best conditions possible, much to the relief of the team. After day one and with two of three scores counting, George and Will’s scores put them just under mid table. Day two provided ideal scoring conditions and George almost shot a level par round with the final putt, but finished with an impressive one over par round. Equally impressive, Toby came in with a great round +2, having been +4 early on, to give the team a combined +3 score and edge our way and finish 11th overall, with just 5 shots separating 6th to 12th positions. A great achievement on the College’s first outing in a golf national final. With such a young team, there is a promising future ahead and with this valuable experience and some fortune hopefully they can reach the finals again next year.
