U16 CL Gwent v Wiltshire

Wiltshire U16 boys had a convincing win over Gwent U16 boys at the Parc GC on Tuesday 28th August 2018 by 12 points to 3.

The Wiltshire boys handicap range was between 2 and 8 while the Gwent boys was between 5 and 14 which put the Gwent boys at a distinct disadvantage regarding golfing ability.

The two stand out boys for Gwent was Harry Paterson of St. Pierre who continues where he left off at the Severnside Tournament by capturing some large scalps, and young Piers Murphy also of St. Pierre who is playing a game well beyond his stature and age.
