Berks Bucks & Oxon Golf
The annual BB&O Autumn Trophy took place at Lambourne Golf Club on Sunday 10th September. It was a strong field with some of the best amateurs in the county playing alongside the BB&O professionals. The professionals and amateurs play together competing for the BB&O Open Championship. Charley Walker (Burnham Beeches) set the pace in the Autumn Trophy by shooting 74 (+2). Trevor Jones (Professional) started strong shooting -3 on the back nine to shoot 69 and take the lead in the BB&O Open Championship. Harry Thomas (Frilford Heath) had a steady round shooting 72 (level). Harry didn't stay at the top of the leaderboard for long as Rory Browne had four 4 birdies in the last 6 holes to lift the Autumn Trophy. Rory's 69 (-3) just fell shy in the BB&O Open Championship as Ian Campbell (Professional) shot 67 (-5).
Congratulations to Rory Browne and Ian Campbell for winning the Autumn Trophy & Open Championship.
The Autumn Trophy is the final event in the BB&O Order of Merit. Carl Banner (Beaconsfield) and Harry Thomas were sitting neck and neck at the top the Order of Merit. Carl's third place finish in the Autumn Trophy was enough to secure him the Order of Merit trophy by 3 points!
Congratulations to Carl Banner on a successful season!
