Hole In One For Harry!

It was a big weekend for up and coming Willow Valley Junior, Harry Micklethwaite. Sunday’s Order of Merit Event was the penultimate competition of the season in both The Junior Order of Merit and The Scratch Silver Medal. Harry secured a second place finish on the day with an excellent score of 37(10) 27. The result puts Harry to the top of the Order of Merit by just five points from Jake Thompson. Micklethwaite also leads the Scratch Silver Medal by 6 shots from Ben Esgate. If his day wasn’t special enough, that all changed on the 8th Hole when Harry hit the shot of a lifetime to record his first Hole in One on the 100 yard 8th hole on our Fountain Ridge course! Incredibly, it was the third Hole in One this season from our academy kids following on from Thomas Nutter and James Thirkell who were also fortunate enough to hit their magical shots earlier in the summer. James Scatchard won the competition with an excellent score of 35(13) 22. The Junior competitions conclude for 2017 in two weeks time at the Junior Tour Championship with all still to play for!
