QUICK THINKING SAVES SCHOOLS FINAL

 

Thanks to the quick thinking of the event organisers, the determination of the players, and the co-operation of the staff at Newport Golf Club, the Welsh Final of the Golf Foundation Schools Team Championship was able to proceed.

The plan was to allow the players to practice on the course the day before the final. However, the forecast of atrocious weather conditions meant that the final was likely to be a washout. Following discussions with all concerned it was agreed that the players would forego their practice round to play the final on the practice day.

All the players coped well with the difficult conditions but it was Nicholas Davies, Owen Rees and Huw Priestland from Amman Valley School who emerged victorious. The school of Emrys Ap Iwan finished second, Monmouth School were third and Blaengwawr Comprehensive School came fourth. Adam Runcie, aged 12 from Emrys Ap Iwan, returned a great score of 80, but the individual prize went to Nicholas Davies who finished on 78.

As for the original date for the final the course was closed due to the weather!
