Vikash & Jake win prizes at NAPGC Championship!

Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire – Sunday 30th July.

Rickmansworth had 2 qualifiers for the annual NAPGC Men’s Championship, an 18 hole medal tournament played over the excellent Bracken course at Woodhall Spa, in Lincolnshire. Heavy overnight rain had eased in the early hours, but left the course playing very long. Playing from the white tees the course measures over 6500 yds, but the regulars all commented that they had not seen Woodhall playing so long in many a year. The CSS went up from 72 to 75 so it shows it was a tough year!

Vikash Patel was our representative in division 3 of the tournament (for players with handicaps 13-20). Vikash played a great round and recovered well from 2 balls O.O.B. on the long par 3 5th hole. Coming home with a nett 77, Vikash won the Piccadilly Trophy for division 3 on count back from 2 other players. A fantastic result for Vikash! And he certainly celebrated it in the bar afterwards!

The ever lively Jake Jacobson was our rep in division 4 (21-28’s), and he thrashed the opposition in his division to win by a mere 11 shots! Jake used his time wisely before the round and warmed up well on the range, and then plotted his way round the Bracken course in style. I’m sure we’ll be hearing much more about this in the days and weeks ahead!
