Robin Barton captured the 2019 Suffolk Open Footgolf Trophy with a marvellous score of 49 (9 under par). This was the same winning score as last year and was good enough to win by one from Dan Ferretti and Roman Barton who both scored 50 (8 under par). In 4th place was last year winner Darren Wheat who put up a good defence of his title.
Robin is a regular player on the ECFGT Tour and is from Cambridge FootGolf Club. He attends all the events with his two sons, Roman and Milo. Roman, who is 13, won the Suffolk Open Junior Trophy and finished 2nd in the overall event.
This is the 4th year that Stonham Barns Footgolf have hosted the Suffolk Open and with a turn out of just under 60 players the event was well supported.

Footgolfer Owen Peck, who last year became UK FootGolf National Junior Tour Champion at age 16, scored a marvellous 8 under par score of 50 to take Suffolk Open title at Stonham Barns by one shot from Pele Heydon. Owen was one behind Pele, the pre-tournament favourite, after 9 holes but a birdie on the 10th and a bogey by Pele gave 17-year-old the lead which he never relinquished.
Ian Plumb was in 3rd place with a score of 52 with Neil Donohoe and Ben Bedford tied 4th two shots further back. The Under 18 Trophy was won by Tom Scott with a very good score of 61 and the Under 15 Trophy was won by Charlie Tranter a great score of 60. The Ladies title was won by Eve Humphries.
