Verulam Golf Club, the ‘birthplace’ of the Ryder Cup, found success at another unique golfing tournament.
The club’s juniors were one of six clubs to be invited to the Centurion Golf Club for a competition before the new Golf Sixes European Tour event.
The matchplay tournament is an unusual concept aimed at a more modern take on the traditional game.
And the London Road club’s youngsters did them proud by taking the win.
They followed that by watching the professionals, with Ireland taking the overall win by defeating France in the final.

Verulam was the home of Samuel Ryder, who founded the Ryder Cup, and they hope the success plus the upcoming Europe v USA clash will be the perfect forerunner to the Samuel Ryder Young Golfer Initiative, a concept aimed at helping youngsters of all ages and abilities get into the game.
