Hampshire Lockdown Order of Merit 2020
Following on from the Hampshire Stay Home Stay Safe Challenges we’ve put together a new challenge for all Hampshire Squad players to play in on a weekly basis starting June 20th 2020.
We’re running a Hampshire Lockdown Order of Merit so players can still compete against others within the county not only in their age group but also in an all ages Top 10.
The format is really simple and will operate in the following way:
Enter via your Hampshire Squad What’s App group or email if you don’t have access by simply declaring the day before you play date/course/playing partner before you play. If possible play with another Hampshire Junior or Adult
Play the round and submit your completed scorecard via What’s App or Email by attaching a photo or screenshot of the card along with confirmation of score (Nett and Gross)
All age group results will be shared via Hampshire Facebook and What’s app as well as an overall Order of Merit.
We hope this will be a great competitive addition to the players golfing experience and provide some extra motivation to improve their game playing against the best players in Hampshire.
Below is a FAQ’s sheet to cover any questions you may have with all information available on Hampshire Facebook link below:
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to get in touch with your team manager otherwise we look forward to welcoming you to the Hampshire Lockdown Order of Meritand an exciting few weeks ahead!

Hampshire Under 14s v Dorset - Tuesday 3rd April at Paultons Golf Centre
Congratulations to the Hampshire Team on spirited performance in testing conditions. The result did not go Hampshire's way losing the fourballs 4-2 and the singles 7.5 to 4.5
Team Manager Rob Mulcahy reflects....
I know it was difficult especially the first 4 out with heavy losses but with Rhys Harrison shooting a 4 under gross even our best under 16's would have struggled, but a fantastic performance by Harvey Denham keeping his head and battled through. Another tough one for Joel Tarry playing his opponent who was 6 shots better in handicap. Quinn Bellew another hard match with his opponent 3 under. Billy was very unlucky loosing 3 balls on the fairway being plugged and not found so could have easily gone the other way. Also bear in mind 2 of our best players were unavailable and the start order would have been different so could have made a difference in matching handicaps.
Our first win was James Deyah who was fantastic all day winning his pairs and securing a 3&2 win in the singles, Ben Jupe again played really well but lost on the 17th 2&1, Jack Field a good win in the pairs with James but lost in the singles 4&2. James Plater a fantastic 2&1 win played solid all the way round, Harrison Price outstanding all day winning his pairs with Billy and a 3&2 win in the singles, Oscar was unlucky loosing narrowly by 2&1. This brought us down to our final 2 and our youngest boys both only age 10, Ray Sanmanthy 1 up with 2 to play went out of bounds on 17th and thus went down 18th all square and nails a 10 foot put on the last to halve his match. Well done Buddy! Out last match and a fantastic performance by Alexander Estridge with our best win of the day a 4&2 victory.
As many of you can appreciate we were not good on the greens and quite a few of you 3 putting and losing holes, this is where the games can change and matches are won, so we need to sharpen up on our short games boys and plenty of practice on the greens in preparation for our next match please. Take away the positives and work on what you feel you could have done better on, I thought you all did fantastic so well done.
WELL DONE TEAM!
