Sherborne’s Tom Plumb wins SEBO (South of England Boys Open)
Congratulations to Sherborne’s Tom Plumb, pictured here holding Jacklin putter trophy for the South of England Boys Open competition which he won with a 72-hole score of 274 which is 12-under par.
Adam Harris from Sherborne’s Pro-shop came in 6th place with a 2 over par score of 288.
The Championship was played over 2 days with 2 rounds played at Yeovil on Tuesday and the final 2 rounds played at Sherborne on Wednesday.
There was a field of 66 players not only from all over Southern England but as far away as France, Spain and the Channel Islands, and Tom led after every round eventually winning by a clear 5 shots from Tom Stagg of Salisbury & South Wilts G.C. who finished with a very impressive 7 under score of 279.
Tom Stagg won the Under 16 Championship and together with Shertborne’s Tom Plumb, these were the only 2 players to finish under par for the 4 rounds, as the Sherborne course proved to be the more difficult day for the majority of the players.
Adam Harris was 26th after the first 2 rounds, stormed through the field with 5 under par on his own course, to finish just 1 shot away from 3rd place, it was that tight.
The DCGU President John White explained that the SEBO competition is a World Ranked Event and the players earn points that go towards their English and World Amateur Golf Rankings Rankings ( WAGR ), so the importance of this Event is not lost on these young players.
