The 8th WYM took place on 30th May, having been moved from its Eastertime slot, which did not detract from the number of Entries received. The weather could have been kinder, but the children were undeterred in their enthusiasm.
John Jewsbury, the President of the Warwickshire Union Of Golf Clubs, was present as ever, as were various other County Officials, who were most impressed by the standard of play and always see the Tournament as a stepping stone for youngsters into future County selection.
The overall Winner was Jack Drury, Stratford Golf Club, with a score of 62 for the 18 Holes of the Par Three Course. Guy Anderson, Ladbrook Park G.C. won the 9 - 11 Age Group and Chanon James, Stoneleigh Deer Park, again won the Aged 8 and Under Section. Amelia Machin, Kenilworth G.C. won the Cup for the Best Girl, presented to her by Jane Dennick, Golf Foundation Liaison Officer. John Jewsbury presented all the Boys prizes.
The Entrants numbered mostly newcomers to the Competition. We hope they enjoyed the day and will enter again next year.
