Well done to everyone who played in the five rounds of the Winter Tour. It is a shame that the snow prevented us from playing the final event at John O'Gaunt.
You may remember that I announced a few weeks ago that there would be two Orders of Merit. One would take account of all events played and the other would only count the four best finishes achieved by each player.
The complete Order of Merit standings for All Events is here.
The complete Order of Merit standings for the Best Four Events is here.
As you can see, Aidan and Luca came first and second in both versions. Congratulations to both young men.
39 of you took part in the Winter Tour this year. I hope to see even more next year when I also hope to have more events in the program.
Sincerest thanks to the clubs who helped by allowing us to use their courses: Bedford & County, John O'Gaunt, Beadlow Manor and South Beds. These events have been very well received by the junior golfers and your assistance has been significant. My own personal thanks to John Jones and Graham Bushell for assisting on the day and also to all the parents and grandparents who provide the taxi service for our aspiring talent.
I look forward to seeing you all next season. In the meantime, Merry Christmas.
