Lee Broster, playing his first ever game of footgolf and playing barefooted, walked off with the Suffolk Open FootGolf title at Stonham Barns. Lee scored a 7 under par score of 51 to tie first place with last year’s champion Kevin Ward. A play off followed between Broster and Ward for the championship trophy. The first hole was halved in birdie twos. Then at the 105yd second hole Broster fired a killer strike to within 15 ft of the hole and then followed that with a confident putt for another birdie two after Ward had already finished the hole with a par.
Lee compiled his score with a two under par front nine and then a 5 under par back nine with 4 birdies in his last 5 holes to match the score of Kevin Ward who also has an excellent 6 under par last nine holes. Their scores of 51 were five ahead of the third place score of Chris Tranter, a regular in the Stonham Barns Footgolf events.
Lee was amazed by his own performance and is now considering entering more footgolf tournaments after chatting with runner up Kevin Ward, a regular footgolfer with tournament experience.
This was the 2nd playing of the Suffolk Open FootGolf Championship at Stonham Barns. There were over 40 entries and the event was played on Sunday 19th June. A special mention must go to Jordan Catchpole for his tremendous hole in one on the 110 yard 10th hole. The celebrations were heard around the course.
The junior category was won by Charlie Tranter with an excellent score of 66 with Barnaby Hunt in 2nd place with a score of 70.
