The first combined U18, U16 and U 14 winter Order of merit competition took place at Mendip Spring GC  on the 19th November. 

Twenty five lads played in very testing conditions. Winds gusted up to 50mph in damp conditions on a course with one hole closed and 3 temporary greens due to the wet conditions under foot.

Despite this the boys put in some strong performances over 14 holes. U18 Ollie Tripp tops the Leaderboard with an impressive 29 Stableford points.

U18 Troy Young was in second spot on 27 points.

U14 Theo Jones and his brother, U16 Noah in joint third place on 26 points.

 There were strong performances from some of the younger boys including U14s Owen Roach and Alec Roberts and Toby Morris from the U16s.

It was good to see so many boys take part and provided a good opportunity for all the managers and coaches to get together and see the boys perform. Well done to all the boys who played.

Many thanks to Mendip Spring for hosting the event and to the parents who supported both on and of the course.

We look forward to the competition continuing at Burnham & Berrow (Channel Course) on the 10th march and concluding at Worlebury on the 24th March.
