Bridgnorth’s Callum wins county golf title

Shropshire & Herefordshire Union of Golf Clubs, SHUGC held its County Machplay Championship with field of 16 of the best players from both counties, invited to enter based on last year’s order of merit. This year Arscott Golf Club hosted the event.

The two-day day event at Arscott Golf Club, saw finalists play two matches on Saturday followed by two on Sunday.

The final saw Callum Brown, from Bridgnorth Golf Club do battle against Dan Hoof, from Market Drayton Golf Club.  Callum had been on fire through the first three rounds winning 5&4, 7&6, 6&5 and his form proved too much for Dan as he took the match on the 11th green 8&7.

Callum said, “It was a challenging weekend with tricky conditions on both days. On Saturday, I relied on some solid ball striking and wedge play to navigate the course. However, Sunday presented a whole new set of challenges with the wind changing direction and the course playing longer due to rain the night before. Despite this, I managed to maintain my focus and hit the ball exceptionally well, winning both of my Sunday matches.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to compete against such tough competition at the start of the season. It was good to come out on top and I want to thank all of the players, county officials, and Richard Pearson, who caddied for me in the last match.

Results – In joint third were Richard Pearson, from Bridgnorth Golf Club and Jonathon Holston from Shifnal Golf Club, With runner up, Dan Hoof from Market Drayton Golf Club.
