OHJGS through to putting final at Royal Wimbledon

The Hurst putting team of Jeremy Waud, Chris Hobbs, Christian Wimshurst and Nick Budge put in an awesome performance in the annual Schools Putting Competition at Royal Wimbledon on Wednesday 6th June and qualified for the Final on 14th June.

Hurst came second in a field of Epsom, Felsted, Repton, Bradford, Westminster, Whitgift and Ardingly. Epsom were first in the group.

Jeremy and Christian were our top scorers with 11 points ranking them as 3rd equal best putters of the evening in a field of 32 players. Chris and Nick made very valuable contributions to get us through to the Final.

It was a warm evening, a superb putting surface and an excellent curry supper with wine afterwards.

We will be competing with Epsom, Charterhouse, Haileybury, The Leys, Millfield, Rugby and Uppingham in the Final.

We wish the team well next week.
