BURGHLEY Park’s Junior Championship was held a day after the highly successful Pro-Am event.
The winner is the player with the best nett score and there are also trophies for the best gross score at U16 and U18 age groups; but regardless of the trophy, this year they were all won by one player – Adam Vaughan who fired a magnificent gross 73 off the back tees to the pin positions used for the Pro-Am a day earlier.
This score, only three over par, gave him a nett score of 62 from his handicap of 11, which has now been reduced to 9. George Tee made a valiant effort at the handicap score with his 85-19-66 but Adam was not to be denied. Elder brother James Vaughan came in third with a welcome return to form.
In the match against Stamford Cricket Club, the cricketers ran out winners in a close match. Doug Watterson/Adam Vaughan had to yield to Gary Peck/Dickie Field by the odd hole to record the cricket club’s only point.
In the annual Capon Memorial tournament in memory of past Captains John and Brenda Capon, a field of more than 130 played a Stableford round in conjunction with the ladies.
An excellent score of 42 Stableford points by Graham Camp won the event for the men. John Tilley was second on 40 with Joe Regis close behind on 39. A three way tie followed on 38 points, Stewart Ward, Mark Duffen and Simon Chester. The leading Lady was Mary Sharpe with 37 ahead of Shirley Caruth with 36.
