Golf 2016 Champs

The 8th Annual World of Squash Golf Day returned to the impressive Moor Park Golf Club in NW London. Eventis Sports brought together golfers from all walks of squash, including players, sponsors, administrators, media and fans of the sport.

 

With its impressive clubhouse and stunning championship High Course it’s a fitting venue for the event. As always preparation was varied ranging from hitting plenty of balls on the range, fine tuning the putting stroke to a pint of beer and a bacon roll before hitting the 1st Tee. The course was certainly the winner this year with the lightning greens proving tough to tackle for most if not all the field.

 

After dinner was served the prizes were awarded with the winning team coming from Colets (87 points) who fielded David Peck, Geoff Howes, Steve Brown and Stuart Hardy. Second spot went to 2013 winners CourtCare 85 points, while Paderborn IIs came all the way from Germany for the wooden spoon!

 

The battle for the individual title went all the way to the wire. CourtCare’s Ian Brightwell eventually pipped PSA’s Alex Gough on ‘back-9 countback’ 20-19 after they both accumulated 38 points. In joint third a point further back on 37 was ESR’s Andrew Shelley and Select Gaming’s Guy Powell.

 

Nearest the Pin was won, possibly with the first shot of the day at it, by PSA’s Alex Gough, who subsequently probably lost the individual title on a another Par 3 on the back 9. Roehampton’s Paul Lindsay was Closest to the Pin in Two and Eventis’ Tim Garner ‘lofted’ a 3-wood to win the drive straightest!! PSA’s Andy Malley put his back out winning longest drive, while Paderborn I’s Emma Beddoes held her nerve to hit the fairway and win the Ladies Longest Drive!

 

Sixteen year-old Sports Aid funded golfer Danny Daniels also impressed everyone with his ball striking and general demeanour, even staying on for the dinner and to present the prizes. The post dinner auction raised over £1,100, which will be ring-fenced by Sports Aid for young squash players in need of funding.
