    King's Lynn Win Trophy

    bigpicThe King's Lynn team made up of James Weight (Pro), Jack Yule (+4), Kale Heath (1) and Matthew Chapman (6) competed at South Herts GC for the Hudson Trophy. The Hudson Trophy was founded in 1959 and is played for by 20 of the top clubs in England so it is quite an honour to be invited. Each year the bottom 4 clubs are relegated and 4 more are invited to play, last year we played and managed to secure our place for this year's event held on Sunday 3rd September. The format is foursome strokeplay combined off scratch. Despite Jack playing off +4 we had one of the higher handicapped teams at the event with many of the clubs having all 3 amateurs playing off + handicaps so it was all the more impressive that after the opening 9 holes we were in the lead. Following the conclusion of the first round we were tied first and well in the running for the trophy. The weather for the afternoons round was a little more challenging as the wind picked up and spells of rain came but after another strong performance on the opening 9 we had a lead heading into the last 9 holes. Despite visiting some interesting places on the final few holes including out of bounds on the last we managed to hold on and win by 2 shots with a final score of 294. James and Jack 70 and 71 (-3), Kale and Matthew 75 and 78 (+9) Team score of +6. This is the first time King's Lynn have ever won the event and we are now in the history books alongside clubs like Wentworth, Sunningdale and St Georges Hill. Looking forward to defending it next year!
