And they say ‘what a difference a day makes!’ Ifield GC was bathed in glorious sunshine for the second day of the 2015 County Championships. The course looked stunning, Sussex countryside at its best.
The morning saw the first round of the knock out stage for the top 16 qualifiers. First round losers then go on to play in the Plate event.
The ‘youngsters’ continued to play some very exciting golf – half of the quarter finalists were juniors, and seven of the eight players under 25. Amazing to watch our young talent as they saw off a number of most experienced county players in the first round. The most epic tussle of the morning was Penny Brown, who was crowned Junior County Champion earlier in the week, winning her match against Paula Carver on the 21st hole.
The afternoon saw some keenly matches, with Jelina Fernando winning her match against fellow junior Elodie Jane Yates on the 22nd hole. Sophie Kennard chipped in on the 17th to win her match against Brandy Rook.
Semi final play starts at 9am on Sunday morning, the line up is:
– Sophie Kennard vs Aileen Greenfield

The Plate semi final is:
