England’s brave fight ends in tight title decider

first_img England’s spirited fight in the U16 boys’ quadrangular international matches ended in disappointment when they were narrowly beaten by Ireland in the title decider. The two teams went head to head on the final day at Prestatyn, Wales, having both beaten their previous opponents, Wales and The Netherlands. England took the upper hand in the morning, winning the foursomes 3-1, and with nine holes left to play in the singles were still in a strong position. But the Irish players pulled out all the stops over the closing holes to win 6.5-5.5 and take the title. England coach Rob Watts remarked: “Ireland played great on the back nine and they deserved to win. We were obviously disappointed not to get over the line but there are lots of positives to take from this. “It was a really good experience for a young side and I am sure we will see some of these boys playing Home Internationals for England at U18 level.” He praised the way they adapted, both to the strong winds on the second day of the round robin and to links golf, which was a new experience for some of the boys. “They had to learn different shots, particularly with their control around the green and they had to adapt pretty quickly!” Earlier in the competition England beat The Netherlands 9.5-2.5 and Wales 9-3. England’s man of the match was Ben Pierleoni (Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire) who had a perfect score of six wins from six games, teaming up with Tom Gregory (Stoke Park, Berks, Bucks & Oxon) in the foursomes. They were joined in the team by: Dominic Clemons (Gog Magog, Cambridgeshire), Jake Craddock (Sleaford, Linconshire), Enrique Dimayuga (Cuddington, Surrey), Matthew Freeman (Worksop, Nottinghamshire), George Leigh (Trevose, Cornwall) and Callum Macfie (Lindrick, Yorkshire).

Gough claims Men’s Amateur title

first_img Tags: Conor Gough, England Boys’ Squad, English Men’s Amateur Championship Conor Gough produced a sparkling performance to win the English Men’s Amateur Championship at Hankley Common in Surrey.The 16-year-old from Stoke Park beat 20-year-old Callum Farr from Northamptonshire County 3&2 in the final to add to the McGregor Trophy and the British Boys’ titles he won last year.Gough spent much of the early part of the season studying for his GCSEs but clearly the enforced break has had no detrimental effect on his golf.He began the morning round of the final by hitting a 350-yard drive down the first and then holing out from 12-feet for a birdie and seven holes later he was three up after a birdie on the 6th and an eagle on the 8th.20-year-old Farr claimed his first hole of the day when he birdied from just off the front of the green at the 10th but he could never quite reel in his opponent and he was four down heading into lunch before he won the 18th with a par.Farr started the second round strongly by winning the first with a birdie and the second with a par but he found himself three down again after dropping shots at both the 4th and the 5th. Thereafter the pair were to share eight birdies between them before Gough sealed victory with a testing four-foot downhill putt for a par on the short 16th.“It feels great to win,” said Gough moments after holing the winning putt. “I played really well. I love match play and as soon as I got through the stroke play qualifier I knew I had a good chance.“I’m proud of myself. I’ve got a couple of big weeks coming up so I hope I can keep things going.“I’ve got the Boys’ Home Internationals next week and then the US Amateur Championship at Pinehurst. I’m really looking forward to that. It’s the same format as this so hopefully I can put in another good performance.”It was impossible not to feel for England “A” squad member Farr who has now reached the last four and the last two in the past two years without tasting success.“I hit the ball better this afternoon but just couldn’t get the putts to drop,” he said. “I’m disappointed but Conor is a very good player and he deserved to win because he played a lot better than me.“I got to the semi-final last year and now the final so maybe next year will be my year,” he added.Photo: Credit Leaderboard Photography. 5 Aug 2019 Gough claims Men’s Amateur title last_img read more
