Junior Captains 2018
Max Adams & Harry McKeown
The Lagonda Trophy was held over 22nd & 23rd May on the Old Course at The Gog Magog golf course in Cambridgeshire. The event was played over 72 holes of medal stroke play, 36 holes being played each day. After the initial 36 holes, the field was cut so that only the 42 lowest scoring players proceeding to compete for the prestigious trophy on the second day.
Max fired into 3rd place after day one with rounds of 71 and 65, totalling four under par. The second day proved to be much tougher for all the competitors as the staff worked hard overnight to produce faster greens and well placed and hard to access pin positions, which made for a very exciting climax. The lead changed several times during rounds 3 and 4, with Adams holding second place at one stage.
The birdies just failed to drop for the talented youngster although his putting was first class. Max finished on a very respectable 72 and a further sub-par round of 69, making for a final tournament score of 2 under for the four competition rounds.
There were a lot of spectators on the course witnessing some fine golf from this elite field of amateur golfers.
This was Max’s first men’s amateur event and being one of only 9 players from the starting field to finish the tournament below par was a great achievement for the 17 year old.
