HGC Juniors are the Champions

Huddersfield Golf Club's Junior Team made the trip down to Cumberwell Park, Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire worth while by winning the Junior Team Golf England National Final 2018 by a convincing nine shots.
An outstanding performance by the youngsters now sees them take on the best of the best from the rest of the home nations, as they go on to represent England in January 2019 at Morgado in the Algarve, Portugal in the Junior Home Nations Inter-Club Championship.
From and initial entry list of 1500 Clubs, they took on teams from Beadlow Manor, West Herts, Burhill and Rossendale for the honour and will be joined by the team from Burhill, who finished second, to face Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Junior Organiser, Stuart Henbest had the team down in Wiltshire on Saturday for a practice round and then they had to be at the course for 8.30am sharp on Sunday for interviews with Sky Sports before teeing off at 9.50am.
Extremely proud of the players, Stuart said: "The team performed incredibly on a difficult course, made tougher by the cold windy conditions, not to mention the Sky Sports cameras.
"However, they were undeterred and all produced fantastic scores to secure the victory. The players are credit to Huddersfield Golf Club, their parents and most importantly to themselves.
"The support we have received from the President, Captains, Board and Members of the Club has been amazing also Alex Keighley, our Head Professional's help has been invaluable all year. Our thanks go to them all."
Ben Walker, who cut his family holiday short to play, shot the best net with a 69. Brighdy Connors (12) shot the second best score of the day with 70 net. James Edwards, Dylan Shaw-Radford and Louis Walsh all came in with 73 net and Dominic Hughes wrapped it up with a birdie-filled 77 net.
They will get chance to celebrate their win with the rest of the Junior Section at their annual presentation evening on November 15 and are very much looking forward to representing their country in Portugal. SKY Sports Golf are showing the 2017 final tonight at 17.30 and 20.30 and our team will be featured on Look North this Friday evening.
