This year’s Junior County Match Week is being hosted by Sussex, and played on the Park Course at Goodwood over the next three days. The format is singles matchplay against the other four counties (Hampshire, Kent, Middlesex and Surrey) and four pairs playing stableford foursomes on the other day.
The conditions for the first day’s play today were wild and windy…. blowing force 6-7, and dark skies and rumbles of thunder. Fortunately, the worst of the rain stayed away, but the conditions were very testing for all the players.
Today, the Sussex Girls played their foursomes stableford, and were very business-like with their mature and focused approach. They worked together as a team and performed very well in particularly difficult conditions (the scores are kept under wraps until the final day, so watch this space!)
In the other games, Surrey notched up some convincing victories to beat Middlesex 4.5-2.5, and Hampshire also beat Kent 4.5-2.5.
Tomorrow, the Sussex team will be playing Kent (9.15 first tee) and Middlesex (2.15 first tee). Please come along to support if you can, but if not all the match details and results can be seen updated throughout the day on the JCMW page.
