Dylan Xanh wins County Junior Championship at the Isle of Wedmore GC

Somerset Junior Championship Isle of Wedmore GC 28/04/2019

The Championship was played on a well prepared course which was remarkable following the gale force winds experienced on Saturday. Huge thanks to the green keeping staff at Wedmore for their considerable efforts. The weather was kinder for the players but a strongish wind and chilly conditions contributed to make the course a challenge over the 36 hole medal off the  back tees. In round 1  Ollie Brimfield and Dylan Xanh from Mendip Spring led the way for most of the round. Ollie found trouble on the 17th resulting in a triple bogie 7. Dylan struggled over the last three  holes   and recorded a  quad on the final hole to close on  an 8 over par score of 78.  Ollie posted the best first round score of +4 (74)  he was closely followed by U16 Bailey Langford from Taunton & Pickeridge on 75.  The scores indicated that the boys found the back nine a stern test with shots being dropped over the Par 5’s in particular. Huxley Howell from Saltford recorded the same score as Dylan Xanh one shot ahead of Stanley Richardson from Wedmore.      Round 2 got underway 45 minutes ahead of schedule. In the final 3 ball Huxley Howell made an impressive start with 4 birdies in the first 6 holes. He  was  3 under par at the turn , Dylan was 1 under and Ollie 2 over.  So the overall position put Huxley in the lead by 1 from Ollie and 2 from Dylan. The final group battled against each other and the course and demonstrated some good powers of recovery. On the 17th tee Huxley and Dylan were tied for the lead with Ollie 2 shots back. Huxley missed the par 3 green left leaving a tricky up and down. Dylan and Ollie found the green. Huxley played a majestic chip and tapped in for a par. Ollie miss his birdie put and holed out for a par. Dylan 3 putted for a bogie. Huxley took a one shot lead to the 17th. The wind was gusting across the fairway and contributed to both Huxley and Ollie finding the out of bounds. Dylan’s drive found the left hand side of the fairway opening up the green. Huxley and Ollie walked off the green having both recorded triple bogies. Dylan missed a birdie chance but recorded a par 4 to take a two shot lead to the last. Dylan found the green on the Par 3  last but finished  a good 25ft from the hole. Huxley played a great shot to 4ft. Dylan ended any chance of a come back from Huxley with a  lagged put just under the hole and a certain 3.  Huxley lipped out for a birdie resulting in a 2 shot win for Dylan and a closing round of -1 (69) In the Under 16 championship Stanley Richardson recored an excellent  second round 3 over par 73 to overtake Bailey Langford and take the title. In the Net competition it was a close battle between   Joshua Owen of Long Ashton and Dylan John of Saltford. Joshua took the hours with a combined net score of 140. SGU President Geoff Ogden Presented the winners with their prizes and trophies.Thanks to SGU Secretary Rob Davis and Exec member Jim Skinner for running the event, to Wedmore Golf Club for looking after all of us so well , to the parents for their continued support and to the Team managers and the boys coaches including the County coaches.
