EGU Qualifier

Cambridgeshire again struggled to make its mark in the Midland Qualifying Round for England Golf’s Inter-County Championships finishing in 10th place for the second year running. Despite success being achieved in the Eastern Counties and Anglian League match play competitions Cambridgeshire has been unable to translate its success into stroke play events. Unfortunately Toby Crisp (Links, Newmarket) and Bryan Graham (Ely City), respectively winner and runner-up in the recent Cambridgeshire County Championships, were unavailable and the county’s lack of strength in depth was exposed.
Cambridgeshire’s best performances came from James Reeson (16th), Ollie Fullerton (20th) and Paul Hodgkin (27th).

Warwickshire with consistently good scores by all their team deservedly won through to the English County Finals with a combined score of 858 (18 over par). The outstanding individual performance of the day came from Shropshire & Herefordshire’s England International Ashley Chesters, who scored 66 and 64 to be 10 under par.
