England Golf South East Group Under 16 League
On Saturday the 28th of July Suffolk Golf U16's traveled to Braintree Golf Club to play Essex and Norfolk in a must win league match. Strong winds and firm fairways made the tight layout very tricky - especially knowing that only a win would get the job done.
The 8 man Suffolk squad played really well with strong finishes coming from several of the boys leading to a nail biting finish. A halved match with Essex by George Austin meant that it all came down to the last match of the day with George Fricker needing to secure at least a half with Essex. He held is nerve and won his match on the 17th hole.
Everyone played really well with all of the squad contributing at least 1 point to the team. Standout performers on the day were Taylor Crisp, Ryan Turnbull, Ben Newman and George Fricker who all scored the maximum 2 points.
This now means that Suffolk and Essex are lying level on points at the top of the league leaving us with a "winner takes all" final match on the 18th of August at Fynn Valley Golf Club.
The final score: Suffolk beat Essex 5 points to 3;Suffolk beat Norfolk 8 points to 0; Essex beat Norfolk 7 points to 1
Winning team-Back row (from left to right): Josh Goulton, Taylor Crisp, George Fricker, Ryan Turnbull Front row (from left to right): James Iron, Max Weaver (captain), George Austin, Ben Newman
