Golfing success for Whitgift with triumphant win at the HMC Schools Singles Championships.
Harry Plowman Ollington and Alfie Fox have continued the School’s golfing success at the HMC Schools Singles Championships, earlier this week. In an exceptionally strong field of 40 boys, competing from all over the country, Whitgift won both the team and individual events.
Harry shot an impressive 2 under par score of 70 on the Red Course at the Berkshire Golf Club, bringing Whitgift’s individual event-winning tally to three years in a row. Alfie finished in 3rd place (on countback) in the individual, shooting a 1 under par score of 71.
With the best golfing schools in the country taking part, Whitgift won by 5 shots in the team event; all the more impressive considering the average handicap of the starters was 3.5.
This performance caps off a successful few months for the Sixth Formers, who have recently accepted golfing scholarships to top American universities and have won the South East area league with the Surrey Men’s 1st team.
