Birkdale Golfers at St Andrews

The Birkdale school golf team of Tom Bradley, Josh Wright and Barclay Brown played in the ISGA National Finals held at St Andrews. It was a two day strokeplay tournament against the top 20 independent schools in the country.
After the first day Birkdale were placed 5th with all three players scoring well around the Torrance course at St Andrews Bay. The second day was extremely windy and the tough greens on the Eden course made it a very challenging day of golf for all. Barclay Brown shot the best round of the day and this helped the team move up to fourth (one shot off second) and his combined total gave him third place individually. There was also a gold medal finish (top 20) for Josh on his debut and a silver for Tom.
Well done to Wellington for retaining the trophy and well done to the Birkdale golfers on another fantastic display.
