YOUNG golfers in Farnham have been rewarded for a fine season on the fairways and greens.

The occasion was the annual presentation night at Farnham Golf Club, which also featured a speech from outgoing junior captain Scott Barham and his successor next season, Lottie Woad.

Woad, whose successful season culminated in victory in the Surrey Girls’ Scratch Knockout, will be supported by new junior vice-captain Tom Skevington.

Defending champion Woad picked up the Rigg Quaich Trophy for the second successive year after beating Alex Jakins (Foxhills) 5&4 in the final at Guildford Golf Club.

On presentation night, trophies for all of the junior major championships were handed out by Farnham lady captain Janet Gosden, with Woad again picking up silverware having won the Junior Club Championship for the third successive year to add to the Junior Captain’s Trophy.

Other major winners were Josh Strauss (Ken Eagle Trophy), Stan Platt (Biggs Cup), Luca Mosca (Centenary Trophy), and Matt Ruffell (Junior Knockout).

And the season-long Junior Order of Merit and Eclectic Cup were won by Josh Strauss and Scott Barham respectively.

Strauss won the order of merit with 378.5 points ahead of Skevington (359), Daniel Edes (355.6), Caleb Strauss (342.7) and Stanley Platt (302.2).

The prize for the most improved junior player went to ten-year-old Logan Hodgson, who reduced his handicap by an impressive 14 shots in 2019, and the two Duff Ross trophies, for the junior academy boy and girl of the year, were won by George Howell and Zoe Barham respectively.

Henry Wigg won the Surrey Inter-club Individual Order of Merit (handicap) and received his trophy alongside all the juniors who played in the event.

In the Team Order of Merit, Farnham narrowly missed out on defending their title, having been overtaken by Burhill in the final event.

Trophies from other team victories, the Triangular Series and the Hindhead Invitational, were also presented on the night.
