ISGA National Championship
6 December 2017
On Wednesday 22 November, our team of Pierse Odell (Upper Sixth, Grenville) (Captain), Lochie Shillington (Lower Sixth, Grafton) and Max Faulkner (Third Form, Temple) battled hard against Warwick School in the second round of the ISGA National Golf Championship. With Warwick's three players holding handicaps of 3, 4 and 4 respectively, we always knew that this match would provide us with a really stiff examination. Playing conditions at The Warwickshire Golf Club (King’s) were extremely challenging as gusts of over 50 mph wreaked havoc with ball flight, distance and spin control.
Max Faulkner lost 2&1 having fought back from being 4 down after just 8 holes and Pierse Odell let victory slip from his grasp having taken an early two hole lead. However, the ever-consistent Lochie Shillington played some outstanding golf to beat his 3 handicap county player opponent on the 18th green with darkness descending. This caps off an outstanding term of golf for Lochie, who is arguably playing some of the best competitive golf across the School and I very much look forward to developing his game further after the Christmas break. Attention now turns to the extremely prestigious Gerald Micklem Trophy in the Lent Term.
