England Golf have just launched a new Facebook Group for volunteers in golf. The group is designed to provide a forum to share experiences, learn from each other and generally discuss ideas to the grow the game.
This year’s Boys Championship got under way at Weymouth on a cool but calmer day than late and the sun shining. The course looked in good condition and with a few showers forecast would be a great test for the few youngsters who were taking part. The field of 20 was some four better than last year but still disappointing! Early starter and local lad Toby Trott held the club house lead for some time with a fine 74 one better than Sherborne's Ollie Griffiths. Ferndown's James Bishop took over coming home in 73 before Alex Johnston with 72 and then Jacob Tidswell with 71 took over the top two slots for the morning round. Toby was however top of the Handicap leader board on 4 under.

Having been duly fed and watered they returned to the course for the second round with scoring in the main proving more difficult than the morning round. The main Championship was being played out within the last group. Sam Trott was five shots better with 72 and held the clubhouse lead but it rested between Alex and Jacob and both finished on 72 so the title went to jacob by one shoton 143 with Alex runner up on 144 which was also good enough to give Jacob the handicap title as well with a net 137 pipping young Toby Trott who finished on 138.
The day belonged to Jacob Tidswell who was crowned the 2019 County Boys Champion.
