County Week – Wednesday

72 competitors descended upon Tehidy Park Golf Club for the individual qualifier in which the top 32 would go forward to the knock-out stages after 36 demanding holes of stroke play.

At 16 years of age England Boy International, Harry Hall of West Cornwall Golf Club led the field with rounds of 67 & 70 (-5), to edge out Tehidy Park course record holder Tom Fox (China Fleet), who recorded rounds of 66 & 72 (-4).

There was a mixed bag from the Tehidy Park contingent, and the scores / qualifiers are listed below……

Qualifiers:

  • Ian Veale 71 / 75
  • Robert MacGregor 74 / 73
  • Tom Rowe 71 / 76
  • Peter Simmons 79 / 74
  • Andrew Clotworthy 77 / 76
  • Ross Lawrance 76 / 79

Non – Qualifiers:

  • Martin Langford 81 / 74
  • Aaron Ashcroft 76 / 80
  • Colin George 80 / 77
  • David O'Mahony 75 / 82
  • James Barnard 78 / 80
  • Chris Hoyle 76 / 82
  • Richard Simmons 78 / 82

There proved to be a bitter sweet moment for the Tehidy Park collective as the score of 155 demanded a sudden death play-off, which would see 5 players vying for 4 spaces. The play-off included our own Martin Langford and Ross Lawrance, and whilst Ross and three others managed a Par 4 at the 1st hole, Martin saw his par putt edge past the hole to leave him as the unfortunate participant to miss out !
