Y8 boys William Mowe and Harry Townsend enjoyed a superb day of golf at the Independent Schools Golf Association (ISGA) Junior Salver at Wellington College on Sunday 6 June. The boys, who were selected to represent Bedford Prep School, finished in 14th place in the individual competition and first place in the Stableford competition, respectively.
Match report by Harry Townsend (Y8)
Having spent the weekend preparing for the competition, we headed to Berkshire to compete in the Stableford and individual tournaments. The weather was on our side, and we both went out in a ‘fourball’.
We were tasked with playing two rounds of nine holes, with an overall par of 72 to aim for. William set off well, achieving two birdies and finished on a fantastic score of gross 84 (net 74), putting him in 14th place (off gross) in the individual competition. I started with a bogey and had an unlucky shot on the 5th hole, but later found my stride and scored well on the back nine. I finished with a gross 97 (net 61), which was enough to put me in first place in the Stableford category.
It was a fantastic experience, and I can’t wait for the next competition on 17 June at Drayton Park.
