Second Futures Tour win for Redbourn’s Maddie
PUBLISHED: 09:00 08 July 2014
Maddie Rolph won her second prize in the Herts Futures Tour, this time at Stevenage Golf and Conference Centre.
The 10-year-old Redbourn Golf Club member was Division 1 Nett winner with an impressive score of 20, cutting her handicap but seven shots.
Maddie joined the 2014 season’s Twos Club along with 11-year-old fellow Redbourn junior Max Bennett, 10-year-old Sebastian Sundera of Verulam Golf Club and nine-year-old Harpenden junior, Ross Lea, who was the Division 2 Gross winner the previous month at Aldwickbury Park Golf Club.
There were birdies on the third hole for Maddie, Max and Ross and on the fifth for Sebastian.
The Herts Futures Tour took over the par-three course on June 22, with 90 youngsters enjoying a day of beautiful sunshine and impressive golf.
The fact that 55 of the junior golfers played under their handicap on the day, is testament to the success of this Lexus Hatfield sponsored development tour, which provides competitive playing experiences for the county’s U12 golfers.
The next Futures Tour event takes place on Friday, July 25 at Chesfield Downs Golf Club. Application forms to join the tour are available from www.hertfordshirejuniorgolf.info.
