Royal Norwich are celebrating their 125th anniversary this year and this is a fitting tournament for the County to share with one of Norfolk’s oldest clubs. Day two saw a weather change with overnight rain softening the fairways and greens offering the players different challenges from yesterday. Third round scoring was calmer with notably Chris Robson and George Morris and Thomas Nudd jumping up the leader board to 5th, 6th and 7th respectively leaving everything to play for in the 4th and final round. The pairing of Giles Evans and Warren Bates continued serenely on completing level par rounds to maintain their overall positions of 1st and 2nd.
The final round got underway in pleasant sunshine with little wind to speak of. Slowly the players posted their scores and so it came down to the final two groups. Jack Cullington fired a three under 67 for a combined total of 279 and wouldn’t just know it, with Giles Evans shooting 71 and leader Warren Bates returning a 72 all were tied on 279 and a play off was the order of the day.
All players went to the 9th as the 1st play off hole and all hit crisp iron shots leaving short irons in. Warren went through the green into the fringe and both Giles and Jack found the green leaving 12 and 10 foot putts respectively. Warren then chipped in and both Giles and Jack needing to hole their putts to continue the play off both narrowly missed leaving Warren as the 2018 Norfolk Amateur Champion. A well deserved victory. Warren will now go forward to Woodhall Spa to play in the England Golf Champion of Champions Tournament later in the year.

The Team Championship was won on countback by King’s Lynn with a combined team score of 432 just pipping teams from Bawburgh and from Sprowston Manor. The winning team of Iain Yule, Kale Heath and Jason Wysoczanski will now go forward to represent Norfolk at the England Golf Champion of Champions tournament at Huddersfield Golf Club in September.

A splendid tournament, played in a fantastic spirit at a fantastic club.
