Four Leighton Buzzard members who attend Cedars Upper School handed out a golfing lesson to their rivals in the Bedfordshire Schools Handicap Championships. Missing out on a clean-sweep of three trophies by a single shot and qualifying to represent their County in the National Schools team championships in July at the home of England Golf, Woodhall Spa.
The winner on the day was Callum Campbell, who was crowned Champion after scoring a trophy winning 41 points in windy conditions at the South Beds Club. Callum, who plays rugby for Leighton Buzzard and is a member of the Northampton Saints rugby development academy was taking an enforced break from rugby due to a back injury. Back injuries seem to run in the Campbell household with his Mother recovering from an operation and now his Father has been referred to an orthopaedic spinal surgeon as well.
Ben Proud, who was narrowly pipped by Callum for the individual title, teamed up with school Freya Daniels and Ollie Banwell to win the County Team Handicap title with 76 points. Freya lost out on the Girls Championship she won last year, as she was defeated on the last hole by Georgia Staroscik from Bedford Girls school.
The Cedars golfers will now represent Bedfordshire in the NASUWT Schools team championships in July, while Callum, Ben and Freya have also been selected to join the Bedfordshire Schools squad for the George McPartlin inter-County Trophy where they will play against teams from Hertfordshire, Middlesex and Essex in July.
Well done to all of you as you all work hard on your golf and deserve your success.
Brian Whiting won the May Stableford with 40 points, beating Tom Fitzgerald by two strokes. Tom took second spot on count back from Dave Hanley. Our Mid Handicap league team halved their match against Stockwood Park with Shane Bentley and Mark Hammond winning and Paul Ellam gaining a half for the team. Well done to all the winners and Club representatives.
