Josh Walsh runner up in Cornwall Closed Championship

Published: 28th August 2013

This year's Cornwall Golf Union County Closed Championship, sponsored by Ocean BMW, was held on Sunday last over 36 holes on the demanding Jack Nicklaus course at St Mellion International. On a fine predominantly sunny day with the wind playing a part the Nicklaus course was presented in excellent condition and attracted great praise from all corners of the field. Despite this the course bore all its usual teeth and scoring proved difficult for the majority of the players.

19 year old Josh Walsh finished second in a field of 71 players in the Championship. Josh along with his brother Olly have recently joined St Enodoc from Thurlestone. The event which attracted 6 of the current County team was won by St Mellion member Joe Yorke with a 4 over Par score of 152 to win by 2 shots from 3 players Josh, Matt Richards and Harry Hall both from West Cornwall.

Josh was also runner up in the under 21 section of the event. Well played Josh and good luck in the Goodman on Sunday.
