Third place for Tidworth youth in their own Bowmaker

5:50pm Tuesday 3rd June 2014

The Junior section of the Tidworth Garrison GC welcomed teams from clubs throughout Hampshire and Wiltshire making an attendance of 42 juniors, which included seven young ladies.

This is a popular annual event and the Bowmaker format gives everyone a chance to contribute with the two best of the four Stableford scores on each hole to count.

The wetter weather seemed to avoid Tidworth and the young golfers took on a well-prepared course on a cloudy but fairly warm day.

Junior golfers are known for their lack of fear when taking on fairways and going for the green, but wayward shots were punished by the rough.

Competition for the prizes, the first of which was sponsored by TaylorMade, was intense with only three points separating the first five teams.

However the team from Bramshaw took the honours with 80 points.

Club Captain Brian Hutchins presented the prizes and congratulated all for taking part and on their behalf, thanked Brian Bosley, Sally Powell and Peter Blake of Tidworth, for such a successful day.

1: Bramshaw 80pts: 2: Waterlooville 79: Kevan Tate (organiser), James Jardine, Ossian Tate and Jack Finlay 3: Tidworth Garrison 78: Brian Bosley (organiser), Owen Lewis, Harry Moule and Callum Duff.

4: High Post 78: Jason Wyles (organiser), Seona Machune, Abigail and Amelia Wyles.

Nearest the Pin on the fifth was won by Callum Duff of Tidworth Garrison, and on the signature 13th by Kyle Campbell of Wrag Barn.
