On the 16th-18th October we sent 6 students to compete in the BUCS Midlands Tournament at Little Aston Golf Club.
The events started on the Sunday with the team arriving on Saturday. The guys found the course hard especially not being allowed to have a practice round on the Saturday due to club rules but the weather was great for golf.
Alice on the other hand had a great start and was 3 under after 5 holes and maintained this for 11 holes. The last 7 holes were harder but managed to finish 1 over par for the first round to lead the tournament by one shot. Monday morning saw Alice making 6 birdies during the round and finished up at 1 over par again. With two rounds finished she was 2 over par and leading the competition by 4 shots. The final day had strong winds and the temperature had dropped, which was quite different from the first two days. She started the round with a double bogey on the 1st and an eagle on the 2nd but unfortunately was 5 over. Another competitor had a brilliant round of -1 par with a birdie on the last which meant that Alice had two shots to finish a 30ft putt. She played her first shot within 3 feet and confidently holed the last putt to win the tournament by 1 shot.
Three of the boys were able to make the cut for the final day which was positive. The final standings were Alice Kozlowski 1st, Brandon Armitage 17th, Oscar Hein 19th, Harry Collins 30th, Adam Wells 38th & David Lyon 43rd.
Alice Kozlowski: “It was a very nerve-racking experience but I am so happy and proud to win representing Bournemouth University and SportBU”
