Berks Bucks & Oxon Golf
The BB&O 25 & Over Championship returned to The Oxfordshire on Monday 29th May. It was set to be a challenging day with strong winds and high rough. Among the earlier starters, Lewis Ainsworth (Frilford Heath) shot level par on the back nine to finish with 77 (+5). Lewis' score remained at the top of the leaderboard until Jonathan Kingsbury (Harleyford) had a flurry of birdies to shoot 74 (+2). Jamie Cook (Heythrop Park) went one shot better to take the lead before the final two groups came in. Kevin Freeman (East Berkshire) and Rory Browne (Feldon Valley) matched Jamie's 73 to finish in second. Ben Welch (Woburn) and Alex Stubbs (Frilford Heath) were neck and neck at -1 standing on the 18th tee. With strong winds off the left on this difficult hole, Ben's par was enough to secure the victory.
Congratulations to Ben Welch on becoming the BB&O 25 & Over Champion!
It was a sunny but chilly start to the U25 Championship which took place at Huntercombe on Tuesday 30th May. It was set to be an exciting day with the strongest field yet competing to be crowned champion. Lulu Leetham (Buckingham) shot a solid 74 (+2) and was the highest finishing girl. Connor Jacob (Goring & Streatley) was set to defend his title, with birdies at 16 & 17 he set a clubhouse target of 70. Ben Loveard (Woburn), Alfie Forisky (Maidenhead) & Daniel Butteriss (Beaconsfield) all came up 1 short and finished on 71. Carl Banner (Beaconsfield) & Ed Davis (Studley Wood) matched Connor's 70, but just lost out on count back.
Congratulations to Connor Jacob on defending the U25 title!
