Ben's golfing success in county competition

Ben's golfing success in county competition
Thursday 25th April 2019 by C. Freeman

Well done to young golfer Ben Atherton from Year 7, whose perfect last shot in a recent competition meant that the Northants county team clinched a victory to beat Bedfordshire.

He played in a pair, against a pair from the opposing team and whoever won the most holes was awarded one point and if there was a draw the players get half a point each. There were seven teams meaning a maximum of seven points up for grabs.

Ben’s match was tightly fought, the only one going all the way to the 18th hole, which was a par 5. Ben played the hole perfectly making a 5 to win his match, which meant the team beat Bedfordshire four and a half points to two and a half.

As well as playing in the county team Ben also plays in the County Academy Talented Golfers Group.

He said: ‘The secret to being successful at golf is staying calm as it can get frustrating sometimes, particularly if you are playing in a competition as every stroke counts.’

Ben has again been selected to represent the County Under 14’s against Cambridgeshire on 19 May at Overstone Golf Club.
