Peter Alliss Young Masters Trophy
2012 Champion George Hawkins Weymouth GC
Finals Ferndown GC 14 & 15 April 2012
Saturday 14 April 2012
Peter Alliss match play got under way on the Presidents Course Ferndown with the top sixteen boys after the four stroke play rounds played around the County drawn and getting us under way was the leader George Carroll against Canford Schools Marcus Lovesy who just got the better of George 2&1. There was some good golf played despite us having to bring the boys in due to the thunder storm but after an early lunch we got back out to get this and the second round completed so next was Weymouth’s George Hawkins against DG&CC up and coming youngster Callum Ward, George went through winning 5&3. Alex Dytham having just joined Parkstone got the better of Steffen Foley, as did young Oscar Perry against Sherborne’s Ben Dew 2 up. Ben Small defending Champion got off to a flying start with a good win against Rhys Card 6&5. Adam Harris Yeovil and Samuel Brooke from Parkstone had a right tussle and needed extra holes finally finishing on the twentieth with Adam edging it. Ben Graham from Weymouth saw off Niall Pearce as did Alex Pouliasis with Josh Skelton. George and Marcus had a right tussle but George was the stronger winning 4&3. Next was Alex and Oscar and this went all the way to the last with Oscar just coming out on top by one. Ben and Adam had a good match but as Adam ran out of steam Ben took full advantage to take the match 3&1 which left young Ben Graham and Alex this was a real up and down match with Alex fighting back from 4 down to make it all square on the eighteenth, a poor tee shot put him under pressure on the first playoff hole and a missed short putt for a halve gave Ben his passage to the semi’s.
Sunday 15 April 2012
The semi-finals saw George Hawkins Weymouth taking on Parkstone’s Oscar Perry this was a tight match in the early holes but George took control in the latter half of the match to book his place in the final. It was then the two Bens, Ben Small hoping to retain the trophy was up against Ben Graham from Weymouth, Ben Small took the early lead but Ben stuck in there and by the turn was ahead and with Ben struggling to get back at him it was to be an all Weymouth final.
So the final got under way with Ben taking the first which seemed to spur George into action and a good birdie by him on the next started his come back and he never looked back from there as he just kept winning holes no matter how hard Ben tried to fight back George just kept finding the shots and putts and ran out a comfortable winner by 6&5 to become the Peter Alliss Young master Champion for 2012. Congratulations to both players a great credit to their club.
Sunday 25 March 2012 - Wareham GC
Well with some of the warmest weather on record for March the youngsters only had to worry about the golf here at a very nicely presented Wareham course. The inform George Carroll again led the way with a fine 38 points, he was disappointed to let the last three holes slip somewhat to mess up a promising level par round. Local Steffen Foley had the best score of the day coming in with 42 points 4 clear of George and the rest. Two boys from the North of the region finished with 36 points and for Ben Dew Sherborne it propelled him up the BoS and also secured Yeovil’s Adam Harris a Matchplay place at Ferndown. George Carroll’s 38 against Alex Pouliasis 26 saw him take top spot in the BoS and the number one seed for the Matchplay. As for the girls and with only two playing Jessica Stott was best in with on 33 points followed by Becky Dodd on 32.

Sunday 16 Oct 11 - Folke GC
On a cold but sunny morning the first ever County event to be held at Folke GC got under way. Entry to this year’s event is disappointing with only 23 boys and 7 girls and only two of those could play due to a clash with the girls County Championship. That said the course with it’s 6400 plus yards proved to be a good test for the youngsters. Last years winner Ben Small got us under way and his 36 points were a good bench mark. Ben Dew Sherborne George Hawkins Weymouth and Christchurch’s Niall Pearce all had 37. Sturminster Marshall’s Josh Skelton leads the way with a fine 40 points.
