Jamie Mullin wins junior title at Hartley Wintney GC
FAST-IMPROVING youngster Jamie Mullin maintained his fantastic form to win Hartley Wintney Golf Club Junior Club Championship.
The competition saw several juniors complete 36 holes over the course of a single day, with gross and nett competitions run at the same time.
Mullin produced the round of the day in the morning, shooting 74 (+3), his first round in the 70s, to lead by three shots. He was unable to repeat the feat in the afternoon, but a round of 80 (+9) was enough to win him the gross prize.
However, it was a close run thing, with Dylan Cornwall just one shot behind after rounds of 77 (+6) and 78 (+7).
Henry Doyle was the nett winner, thanks in no small part to an outstanding second round of nett 58 (-13), which earned him a seven-shot handicap reduction. That, coupled with a nett first round of 65 (-6), saw him beat Mullin by nine shots.
Sue and Keith Rockhill claimed victory in the club’s annual Husband and Wife Salver, their score of 44 points seeing them beat the Flints and the Robeys by five shots.
It was a case of brotherly love in the Huntsdale Cup as the Wise brothers, Tony and Kevin, won both the gross and nett prizes. A round of 75 (+4) saw them beat Ben Cornwell and Ed Holland by one shot in the gross competition, while a nett score of 64.5 meant they won the handicap competition by 2.5 shots, with Mike Odell and Graham Liggat second.
Mullin’s success in the junior championship was preceded by victory in the August Monthly Medal with a nett 69 (-2), beating Fred Lewis by one shot.
Barry West won division two on countback, beating Dennis Smith after both had finished with nett rounds of 67 (-4), a score that earned West the overall prize. Peter Goddard was three shots back in third.
A nett round of 71 (par) was enough to win division three for Mike Wilson, beating John Long on countback.
Jackie Keay enjoyed an outstanding day in the ladies’ medal, winning the silver division with a nett round of 62 (-9) and recording a hole-in-one on the shortened par-three fifth. Jan Newman also had a great day, shooting nett 64 (-7), but she had to settle for second place.
The bronze division was won by Sally Solomon with a nett round of 64 (-7), beating Lynda Lamerton by five shots. Brenda Beales’ nett 74 (+3) won her division three, beating runner-up Elizabeth James by five strokes.
Brian Wood won the midweek Stableford with 42 points, beating Richard Plank on countback, while 40 points was enough to hand Alan Hodges the seniors’ monthly Stableford, beating David Howard by three points.
Tony Davie won the first of two Pro-Shop Stablefords with 43 points, beating Kevin Pigney by one. John Gair won the second with 41 points, one clear of David Carrod.
