Halford Hewitt Selection
A message from the Captain…
Firstly for those who made the trip thank you very much for supporting the Captains weekend at Sandwich last week. Despite weather – fog, difficulty for Rob to get the boys there, and clubs going missing, I hope you all enjoyed it, and there was certainly some impressive golf played – not least the 3 at fourth into strong wind captains drive, Lewis 3 iron to 15 foot, and holed putt (sorry had to put that in!).
We have now mulled over the options for HH in April, and it has been a difficult decision brought about by the quality options open to us, in particular Alex Cheung’s performances at the weekend impressed, and a shame his US commitments ruled him out of selection and I trust that those selected will be able to show that quality and progress in the tournament.
The team selected is:
As I think most of you were aware we have selected 11 due to Richard being unavailable for round 1, this does provide us with options as the team progresses.
Our first round match is 7:45 vs Clifton at Sandwich.
Practice times are 7:45 & 11:45 again at Sandwich.
There may be options for those who want to to play Tuesday too, and if a bed is required for Tuesday that is also possible.
Thanks to all those who have played in the trials, and I think it is a very encouraging sign for OWGS that we have been selecting on quality, and in many cases (not mine obviously) on youth, it is encouraging to see those recently left playing so well, and I hope enjoying OWGS golf.
Best wishes to all Mark.
