Golf Academy Success at the Intercollegiate Tour National Finals
The Golf Academy recently travelled to Trentham Golf Club in Stoke to take part in the Intercollegiate Tour National finals. This was a 54 hole competition and a World Amateur ranking event.
After round one, Danny Coombs was leading the Gross competition with two of our other golfers in the top ten.
After the first two rounds Patrick Harris was leading the Nett competition, Will Green was in second place in the Gross and the team was in third place in the Nett and Gross.
In the final round, the team of 8 played exceptional golf and when the last group came down the 18th, Will Green was leading the individual Gross competition. Patrick played well and finally finished in fourth place in the Nett, a great first final for him. Will Green was crowned the National Champion in the Gross competition and to our surprise the team won the National Nett Championships by 19 shots!
This is such an amazing achievement and everyone who took part should feel so proud. This is both the first time an individual golfer from Itchen has won a national title and the first time the team has won a national title.
The team: Will Green, Drew Mackinnon, Danny Coombs, Austen Godfroy, Patrick Harris, Harrison Knights, Harvey Simpkins, Tommy Brammer.
