World of Squash Golf Day 2017

 

The 10th Annual World of Squash Golf Day returned to the stunning 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 a spectacular clubhouse and the championship High Course to match, making it a fitting venue for the event. A slightly earlier start in 2017, saw the compeitors congregate for coffee, bacon rolls and putting practice soon after 10am.

 

After an enjoyable 18 holes in a mixture of sunshine and showers, the mandatory debrief and ‘if only’ chat too place on the Terrace. Everyone then retired to the  Orangery for dinner.

 

After dinner the prizes were presented by young golf star Hannah Screen (+3 Handicap), who had impressed on the PAR 3 Challenge.. PSA ‘ham & egged’ beautifully to score an impressive 94 points and defend their title. Congratulations to Alex Gough, Andy Malley, Jayden Gough and Nev Appleton. The wooden spoon was aptly won by Muddy Boots, who spent too much time off the short grass!

 

Given it was the 10th World of Squash Golf day it was fitting that the PSA’s CEO Alex Gough was individual winner, scoring an 40 points and pipping last year’s champion Daryl Selby (39) and Robbie Temple (38) to the post.

 

Nearest the Pin was won by PSA’s Jayden Gough and Roehampton’s Dominic Guirrini picked up the nearest the pin in two on the tough 8th hole, although it appears small print is required in the future to clarify it needs to be on the green! Terry Norman’s 2 inches off the line was straightest, Robbie Temple boomed a drive the furthest off the tee Chloe Rogers won the Womens’s longest drive.

 

Seventeen year-old Sports Aid funded golfer Hannah Screen (Handicap +3) entertained everyone with her ball striking and accuracy. Of the 10 players who got inside her shots, there were two stand out efforts from Europa Tour player Dan Garner and Dulwich’s Graham Day who both stuck it to 4 feet. Hannah stayed on for the dinner and to present the prizes. The post dinner auction raised over £1,500, which will be ring-fenced by Sports Aid for young squash players in need of funding.
