Results of the Golfing Challenge at Warmington on the 30th June 2012
Thanks to the work of a great team of groundspeople the green at Warmington was transformed into a course to rival St Andrews. Top golfers from around the world couldn't make it, but some keen golfers from the local area took on the challenge to see who would emerge as the Edgehill Games Champion.
The champions were decided by their combined scores across three disciplines
- Chipping golf balls at a target
- Chipping tennis balls at tyres – another sport to watch out for in future Olympics!
It was a close fought competition with each of the teams showing strengths in different areas. Nick Gunn reached a record score on the chipping at the target which helped to secure him the individual Gold for the men, but great consistency across the team meant that Warmington brought home the team Gold.
The juniors present also had a go and all received a medal for their display of excellent golfing skills
The winners were:
Nick Gunn representing Kineton
Jim Saxton representing Kineton
Graham Squires representing Warmington
Jennie Boyle representing Warmington
Edwina Iwanek representing Kineton
Ann Saxton representing Kineton
