Golf – North West Regional Finals

Jamie Redmond, Jack Ormesher, Jack Harrison and Tom Farrelly represent KGV College at Regional Finals.

On Monday, 14th October the four-man representative squad took to the stage at the excellent venue of the Pryor Hayes Golf Club Cheshire. In less than perfect conditions the students performed well, with Jack Harrison carding the best round. Students battled it out in the wet blustery conditions in the British Colleges Sport North-West Regional Finals with the top Students being selected in the regional team to represent their college at National Finals.

Jamie Redmond

Jamie started first in the field, in the toughest conditions of the day which didn’t seem to ease. With birdies and pars on the front 9 both the weather and the score was improving. But with more showers through the turn Jamie was seeing how frustrating the game can be, but managed to make a big finish with his 40 yard chip shot attacking the hole to end the day on a high.

Jack Harrison

Jack had the break in the weather on then tee and took advantage with a par. The front nine was very scrappy golf with some good scrambling. He was 37 at the turn and was looking at a good score but the par 3 16th got the better of him and let’s just say he wants to forget the last two. He was swinging it well but failed to take advantage of some simple situations, which means a much lower score was clearly on the cards. He has enjoyed the experience and would like to thank the organisers for putting on such a well organised competition.

Tom Farrelly

Tom started the round nervously and the scoring was below his normal average. As the round went on and the weather catching him out at times he managed to get some better scores and help improve the team’s chances. His best spell in the round was between holes 13 and 17 were he scored 2 pars and a birdie. Tom eventually finished with a 78 net.

Jack Ormesher

Jack got lucky with the weather, only having to endure a handful of brief showers. Jack was quite unlucky in the first few holes, finding some poor lye’s and not playing very well. Eventually Jack started to find some form, finding a few pars and even the occasional birdie chance (none of which converted) to eventually finish the front 9 with a 41. The back nine had a few more spells of good golf, still unable to convert 3 birdie chances in a row, played some scrappy golf overall with a few poor holes thrown in there. Jack eventually finished with an 88 gross from a fairly unlucky round.

Overall it was an excellent experience for all involved. All students were a credit to the college and we look forward to e same event next year.

King George College would like to thank all involved in organising such a great event, and wishes all students the best of luck representing North West at the BCS National finals in April.
