11 year old Alexandra Rock travelled over 1,000 miles from Czech Republic to Stonham Barns to play in the July Stonham Junior Tournament. Alexandra, who plays her golf in Prague and has an 18 handicap, travelled with her parents yesterday and now plans to stay in England for a weeks holiday. She won the Under 12 Age category with a very good score of 36 in her first round at the 9 hole course at Stonham Barns with a round that included three pars and a birdie on the 4th hole. In 2nd place was 11 year old Rio Everitt from Stowmarket Golf Club with a score of 38.
The Under 10 Age category was won by Sawyer Osbourn, a 10 year old from Lakenheath Golf Club with the best score of the day, a 33 (4 over par). The Under 8 Age category was won by 6 year old Finlay Brock with an excellent score of 41.
It was great to see the girls dominate the Under 12 Age group taking the top four places and well done to all of them.
