Hayling players dominate Championship
County Champion Richard Harris
Richard Harris holed a slippery twelve foot birdie putt on the 18th green to win the Hampshire County Championship at Hayling Golf Club yesterday (5th September).
The final hole birdie meant that Harris defeated Toby Burden by the narrowest of margins after both players had dominated the two day Championship at their home Club.
Earlier in the day Harris had booked his place in the Final with a semi-final victory over Blackmoor's Mark Burgess while Burden had defeated Kevin Hickman by 2 and 1.
Defending Champion Toby Burden led qualifying for this year's Hampshire County Championship at Hayling Golf Club today.
Burden shot a seven-under-par score of 135 for the 36 hole qualifier, one shot ahead of fellow Hayling member Richard Harris.
The 36 hole Hampshire County Championship Qualifier will be played at Hayling Golf Club on Friday 4th September.
A restricted field of sixty players will compete for just four places in Saturday's semi-finals (5th September).
The Final will be played on Saturday afternoon.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions caddies and spectators are not allowed.
Both semi-finals and final will be played 'behind closed doors'.
The Championship was due to be played at North Hants Golf Club in June.
