Freddie’s on Fire

Freddie Hopkins receiving the Overseas Championship Trophy

Rarely does one dominate for a long period in golf and certainly very rare in junior golf but Freddie Hopkins is taking control this winter. The 2023 Sussex under 12s and under 13s champion also won two 2023 Sussex Development Tour events before winning that Order of Merit has had a tremendous winter. Not only has he won the last two winter pairs events at the end of 2023 plus winning the End of Season Scramble with his family but as below reads he won the January 9-hole stableford and the Junior Members stableford on the Griffin Course with 39 points and he also ran away with the Overseas Invitational Championship. The 54-hole event at the wonderful El Rompido resort in Cartaya, Spain is one of the hardest events to win on two difficult golf courses. With scores of 42 points, 45 points and 32 points, Freddie won by 6 shots leading from start to finish. Even in the February 9-hole stableford despite finishing tied 4th his score of 18 points is still exceptional for this time of year. We are all looking forward to the season ahead.

Freddie Still on Top

Lucas Welsh topped the juniors in the February 9-hole Stableford with 19 points. In wet muddy conditions, the scoring was very good with Caelan Dhami tying with Welsh, and Freddie Hopkins and Lucas Taylor just 1 point behind. However, it was Freddie’s dad, Dean, who beat everybody with his 20 points showing everyone how it’s done. After two events Freddie continues his hot start to the year and is on top of the order of merit.

Freddie Hopkins has followed up his successes in 2023 with a solid win in the January 9-Hole Stableford. His score of 17 points put Ricardo Pianta and Sussex under 14s Champion, Leo Cahi into 2nd place just 2 points behind. Scoring is always tough in January with wet ground conditions and cold weather as well but Freddie held it together well with a solid 9 holes.

Despite a slow start to his round the 2023 Sussex under 13s Champion showed a lot of experience in not giving up and finishing well. Having won 2 Sussex Junior Golf Development Tour Events and 2 County Championships in 2023 Freddie is right to have great expectations in 2024  and it was fitting for him to start the season well.

Winter Scramble Another Success

Eleven teams of four took part in our Winter Junior Adult Scramble on a fresh January day. The scoring was great and it was Sienna Teasdale, Oscar Teuten and Stanley Teuten who triumphed with a great gross score of 4 under par for the 9 holes. Assisted by Sienna’s dad Paul, they pipped Joe Cairns and Joshua Stone into 2nd place who beat Leo Cahi, Archie Stevenson and Oliver Stevenson on count back sending them into third place. Leo Cahi’s team was first out and having scored 3 under par were looking like winning until Joshua Stone’s team (2nd last team out) came in and pipped them on countback. This should have been the right result for young Joshua as he has lost out on countback for the win so many times but the Teuten brothers had other plans and spoiled the party. However, there will be so many more games to take part in with the 2024 season just getting started.
