JUNIOR SKILLS TEST TROPHY

21st January 2017

Winner: Kieran Sorrell 72 points

Runner Up: Ben Tatum 63 points

 

 

 

LAY-OFF FAILS TO HALT BEN TATUM’S CHARGE

Without having picked up his clubs for six weeks, Newton Green’s Ben Tatum strode to the first tee and promptly won the Junior Open at his home club.

The 16-year-old, who plays off five, and generally prefers to play football in the winter months, hit a three over par 72 to take the title, previously held by fellow club man and former junior Jed Seeley.

Tatum’s performance left him one shot ahead of Ipswich’s Sam Byford, who plays off one, had been pipped at the post by another Newton member, Harvey Watts, in the recent Suffolk junior match play final.

The team prize for the Aldous Cup was won by the Stoke-by-Nayland pairing of brothers Max and Isaac Toombs. Atlhough they could not raise a third member for a team, their two Stableford scores, each of 38, off handicaps of 21 and 27,was good enough to give them a count back win. They defeated Newton’s Tatum and Oli Page, who had also been forced to play as a pair after a call-off.

Division 1: (gross scores) 72 Ben Tatum (Newton Green), 73 Sam Byford (Ipswich), 73 James Cooper (Newton), 75 Lewis Whiting (Haverhill), 76 Habebul Islam (Ipswich), 76 Harry Hodgson (Ufford Park). Net scores: 68 James Cooper, 71 Harry Hodgson.

Division 2: (Stableford): 37 Max Weaver ocb (West Suffolk), Luke Green (Ipswich)

Division 3: 38 Isaac Toombs (Stoke-by-Nayland)

JED SEELEY BAGS NINE TROPHIES

Jed Seeley, who broke the course record for adults at Newton Green Golf Club during the year, bagged an armful of prizes at the annual presentation for the club's junior section.

He collected nine awards, and aims to join the Professional Golfers' Association training scheme with professional Tim Cooper later in the year.

Seeley's awards included being voted junior club person of the year. His other awards included the KVR Trophy, Cooper Trophy, Junior Shield, coaching/skills Award, C List eclectric, Order of Merit and also the S Woodhead doubles knock-out with Harvey Watts.

Another major award winner was James Cooper, who is following in the footsteps of his dad Tim, Newton's professional.

JUNIORS BEAT SENIORS

Each year the juniors of Newton Green Golf Club challegne a section of the club for the Scanlon Trophy, and this year they took on the senior men. Played under Stableford rules, the match could not have been closer with the younger golfers notching 254 points - one more than the seniors. Former captain John Scanlon, who donated the trophy several years ago, provided hospitality for the event which provides a healthy bonding exercise between younger and older golfers at the club. 

 

ALICE IS MATCHPLAY RUNNER UP

Newton Green's Alice Barlow has finished runner up in the Suffolk Girls' Junior Matchplay final after a tight battle with eventual winner Abbie Symonds.

However, with her opponent now heading for the adult ranks, Barlow could have a clearer run at the title next season.

In this year's final at Stowmarket, Symonds was three up after ten holes of high quality play, but Barlow had pulled two holes back by the 14th, although her putt on the 16th lipped ouT to allow Symonds to increase her lead again, and then take the 17th hole after reaching the par five in two shots. 

 

NEWTON JUNIORS ENJOY HUNSTANTON

Newton Green's juniors have enjoyed success across the board this season and been rewarded with a day's golf at Hunstanton - one of East Anglia's leading courses.

The day was made possible through the generosity of Newton's men's captain Andrew Johnson, who is also a member at the Norfolk club, and invited the young players to play the coastal course. Players taking part in the day were, from left to right, James Cooper, Kieron Sorrell, Connor Talbot, Tom King, Ben Uttridge, Kieron Heard, Jed Seeley, Alex Iveson, Max Hemson and Ben Tatum.

WHITING BLOWS IN AFTER HURRICANE JUDE

An impressive one under par 68 saw Haverhill’s Lewis Whiting win the Newton Green Junior Open by a four shot margin.

Whiting, who earlier in the year was runner-up in the 36-hole Suffolk Amateur Championship, also helped Edward Halpin and Fiona Stokes win for Haverhill the major team prize of the day, the Aldous Cup.

With an impressive original entry of 70-plus, the Newton event had been planned for the day Hurricane Jude swept through Suffolk. Fortunately, the home club took notice of the weather forecast, putting the championship back two days.

It meant 20 from the original field could not take part, but the day still provided some high class junior golf, with a 72 from Joshua Robertson, of Ufford Park, putting him in second place, and Paul Waring, of Felixstowe, winner for the previous two years, third on 73.

In the net scores competition, the home club’s Ellie Aldous came home first with a level par 71, beating fellow Newton player Max Hemson on count back.
