Some exceptional golf was on display from school and college players at the Dukes St Andrews. After the first days play over 30 players were 3 over par or better. 123 players from over 20 schools and colleges took part in the National finals at The Dukes St Andrews. Players had all qualified from the British Schools League held from September through April, with areas spreading across Scotland, Ireland and England.
The National Finals consist of team Gross and Nett and Individual gross over 2 days
In the team tournament the best 4 scores from each of the six players counted towards their total on each of the 2 days. After the first day defending champions Hartpury lead the way with a total 285 (66,72,71,76) which included a gross 66 from Joe Harvey – a course record for the Dukes. A remarkable achievement as the weather was breezey and raining on and off. The Golf Colleges Lizie Prior came in with a one under par 70 to help her team into second place after the first days play.
The top finishing 5 teams were all within 14 shots of the leaders so all to play for on the second day.
As the scores came in on the second day where the weather turned windy and cold, Durham who were lying 7th after the first day looked like they may have pulled off the nett trophy, only to be pipped at the post by the Daren Clarke school from Northern Ireland.
