9th World of Squash Golf Day

The 9th Annual World of Squash Golf Day returned to the impressive Moor Park Golf Club in NW London. Once again Eventis Sports brought together golfers from all walks of squash, including players, sponsors, administrators, media and fans of the sport.

 

Moor Park has an clubhouse and a championship course to match, making it a fitting venue for the event. This year’s early morning rain damped the enthusiasm for practice but also helped slow down the notoriously quick greens

 

After dinner was served in the Orangery the prizes were presented by young golf star Michael Gilbert. The team event was tied with PSA pipping Selecting Gaming on ‘back 9 countback’ after both teams scored 91 points to finish well ahead of thefield. Congratulations to Alex Gough, Andy Malley, Jayden Gough and Nev Appleton. The wooden spoon was a more (un)confortable result with Roehampton I coming out on bottom.

 

The individual title was impressively by World no.20 squash player Daryl Selby who scored an impressive 40 points in going round 2 over off a handicap of 6. Paul Lindsay (38), Alistair Harris (38), Andy Malley (37) and Tim Garner (37) all managed to better their handicap.

 

Nearest the Pin was won by Eventis’s Angus Kirkland and Dave Culshaw picked up the nearest the pin in two on the tough 14th hole. Graham Dandy was straightest, and Chris Goodenough hit it the furthest, off the tee.

 

Sixteen year-old Sports Aid funded golfer Michael Gilbert (Handicao +1.1) also impressed everyone with his ball striking and accuracy such that only 3 players got inside his shots. Michael stayed on for the dinner and to present the prizes. The post dinner auction raised over £1,200, which will be ring-fenced by Sports Aid for young squash players in need of funding.
