News Report from the 2017 Open

As Jose-Maria Olazabal continues to play at the top level, he will know doubt draw on all his experience as a player in both the professional and amateur ranks. It's hard to believe more than 30 years have past since the Spaniard graced our course and underlined his superstar potential by winning the Fulwell Junior Open, back in the early 80's. 

Results

Shergo Kurdi was the star man, the junior from Windlesham left the others green with envy with a well crafted round of 68 (nett) and Gross 72, to win his maiden Junior Open title.

Shergo's round of 72 (gross) was the lowest score of the day on countback, but as he won the overall prize, James Ruddick (72 Gross) picked up the scratch prize for the 2nd consecutive year. In his winner's speeech for this his last ever junior open, he encouraged all players to enter as much opens as they can, to gain experience and challenge themsleves. l'm sure even Jose-Maria Olazabal would have been proud of such a gross score for the day.

Hats off also to Daisy Kennedy with a cracking round of 69 (nett) off a handicap of 4, who was the best female player on the day. Her gross score was also fourth best overall. 

Sharp shooters on the day were Sasha Crockett  who put her tee shot to 6ft 7 inches away from the pin on the par 3 9th and Canice Screene who took the Longest drive on the 18th. 

The 13 and under prize went to Vadim Heritier who played well despite feeling under the weather with Fulwell's Thomas Hawke finishing second. 

 

    

 

A wonderful day, put together by the office team, our junior organiser Ian Blundell plus with the support of a handful of trusty helpers.

Our thanks go to all the ball spotters and Club Captain for their unrivalled ball spotting talents. I am sure the juniors were very grateful for finding there golf balls throughout the day.

Thanks also to Steve Woodcock (Starter) for ensuring all players got off the tee safely. Barry Comben did a fantastic job making sure that the golfers obided by the rules and filled their score cards in correctly. A great experience for them and hopefully this will only help with their progression in future tournaments.  

Finally a massive thank you to Sue Pearson and Ray Reid who successfully managed to ensure that all golfers registered and enjoyed themselves throughout the day.  

Thanks guys! We would also sincerely like to extend a HUGE thank you to all the Fulwell members who gave so very generously to help establish an extremely handsome prize fund! This ensured the day was all about the juniors, and who knows, perhaps a future Jose-Maria Olazabal?
