Junior Champion Club

Published: 4th April 2013

We could be forgiven for travelling all the way to Cape Cornwall Golf Club with a degree of confidence, after all we had 3 members of our recently successful Wills side representing the Club in the Junior Champion Club qualifier; Sam Jarvis, Joe Combellack and Jake Sanders. Cape Cornwall is a 'quirky' little course demanding length, accuracy and more than a little courage at times. The greens are small, and missing some would put you in danger of a certain bogey, double bogey, that's if you managed to stay on the course. I forgot to mention, the strong bracing wind which, along with the spectacular panorama, took your breath away.

Sam, feeling well below par, posted a very creditable 35 points but unfortunately Joe and Jake failed to make a significant contribution and we finished well down on the eventual winners Truro. I said I wouldn't report the scores suffice to say that Joe, in eating 20 chicken nuggets at the local McDonalds, came close to matching his Stableford score!!! When watching it is easy to criticise but we had a laugh after the game but we all agreed that there's better to come.
