Blane Breheny (South Beds) became Boys Champion on Thursday (30th July) at Bedford & County Golf Club. Matt Hill (Leighton Buzzard) was Under 16 Champion, whilst Josh Conte (Bedford & County) was the Handicap Champion.
After the morning round, Matt led the field by 2 shots after recording a magnificent 69, the low round of the day. Early in the afternoon round, a 45 minute weather delay for thunder and lightning threatened to disrupt the players. Blane kept his concentration, however, to record a second, very consistent score of 71 to give him a final score of 142 to win the title by 2 shots from Matt. England Boys selector Roger Walmsley was watching the golf for much of the day and he surely impressed by what he saw.
The runners up were, U18s Alex Harris (John O''Gaunt), U16s Lewis Adams (Stockwood Park) and Handicap Sam Filipczak (Mowsbury).
Bedford and County Golf Club was in great condition and we thank them and their members for giving up their course for the day.
