Kent Under 18's win at Goodwood

Wednesday 20th June 2018

A fantastic result for the Under 18's in their triangular match away at Goodwood golf club on Sunday 17th June. The final score of Kent - 4, Sussex - 2, Hampshire - 0 was a convincing one, with many of the matches being won early! Captain, Jensen Hull, leading by example as he only needed 14 holes to see off both of his opponents. But with many other players also having convincing wins, it was very much a team effort! Well done and congratulations to all the boys that played!
