With the sun shining we were back at Wareham for this year’s Cyril Nash Memorial Trophy event incorporating the English Junior Champion Club qualifier. We had a very good field with some senior players mixed up with the young guns. There was some excellent golf to watch and it never ceases to amaze how well these youngsters can hit the ball. The early scores in indicated scoring was going to be good. Gus Moxson held the lead for most of the afternoon on 41 points one ahead of Ferndowns Jake Moore and Weymouths alex Johnston. Jack Kerslake from Weymouth came home with 42 to take the lead which he held until the young Zac Mudford from Lyme also came home with a fine 42 points and a better back nine to take the title.
