Norfolk County Handicap Championships

The first Championship of the Norfolk County Golf Union’s competition calendar, was played at Eaton on Sunday. The course was presented in fantastic condition, with really fast greens. Conditions were very testing with gusts of wind at 40mph and fairly firm ground in places.

Matthew Bowman from Kings Lynn set out in the very first group of the field of 87 players and set a very low score of nett 67 (par 70 course) and this held the lead for quite some time until young Charlie Green from Bawburgh Golf Club equalled the score of nett 67. Initially it looked like Matthew had won on count back but by analysing the exact formula for a count back in a stroke play competition, the title was awarded to Charlie, aged sixteen and possibly the youngest ever winner of the title.

However, Matthew still turned out to be a winner, as Kings Lynn took the team title with a combined score of 215. The team of Bowman, Iain Yule and Josh Ring beat a Bawburgh team of Andrew Gooch, Ben Thompson and Richard Bunn by two strokes.

The full list of individual prize winners was as follows:
1st Charlie Green Bawburgh nett 67 on count back
2nd Matthew Bowman Kings Lynn nett 67
3rd Tom Morgan Eaton nett 68
4th Andrew Gooch Bawburgh nett 71 on count back
5th Greg Smith Eaton nett 71

The tournament was run with strict social distancing adhered to at all times and the new adapted scoring system worked incredibly well, so no score cards were exchanged at any point in time. Players were asked to leave immediately after their round and the Handicap Trophy was awarded to Charlie by the County President at a later date.

The next event on the NCGU calendar is the first Order of Merit event at Bawburgh Golf Club on Sunday 12th July, followed by the County Amateur Championship at Thetford on Sunday 2nd August. Entry forms for these and all other events are on the NCGU website.
