Kudos to King’s Ely Golfers, Lewis Pugh, Rohan Neat and Ellis Kerr, for winning the first round of their Independent Schools Golf Association (ISGA) Tournament against Oundle School.
The competition was held at Ely City Golf Club on September 19th, and King’s won all three matches.
Mr Carberry, who is our Head of Golf, said: “Ellis was first to tee off, demonstrating his prowess in navigating the windy conditions. He took control of the first match early, winning the first 5 holes and halving 3 out of the first 8 holes. Although he encountered a few problems over the next few holes, giving up his advantage and going 1 down through 14, he soon pulled back the lost holes, and went on to win the match 3 and 1.
“Rohan was second to tee off and despite the challenging conditions, he managed to find his rhythm and showed great determination in order to capitalize on key opportunities, securing a 6 and 5 victory. This match highlighted the importance of patience and seizing crucial moments in difficult circumstances.
“Lewis played the final match of the day and both players demonstrated resilience as they faced the adversity of the persistent wind. Ultimately, Lewis was able to adapt better to the conditions and make precise shots when it mattered most, allowing the team to clinch a 4 and 3 victory, and sealing the match play competition.”
Established in 2005, ISGA is the official golf organisation for independent schools in the UK.
Good luck for the next competition, chaps!
