Lily May scores a runaway win over mixed field

first_img27 Aug 2016 Lily May scores a runaway win over mixed field Girl international Lily May Humphreys finished six shots ahead of the mixed field at the North of England U16 stroke play championship at to claim her third title of the year.Humphreys, who was 15-under par at Pannal Golf Club, Yorkshire, also became the first girl to win U16 and U14 trophies in the same year – and she equalled the course record with her second round of seven-under 67.The 14-year-old, from Channels in Essex, adds these titles to her earlier wins in the Fairhaven Trophies and the English girls’ U16 open championship. “It’s my best season and I couldn’t really have made it any better,” she said.She added: “It was good to beat all the boys! I was really happy to do that.” There were three girls among the first five players and their strong performance was highlighted by the fact that, for the first time, the final group on the last day was made up of two girls and one boy.Humphreys finished with a total of 281 and was followed in the scoring by her two playing partners on 287: Will Hopkins (Belton Park) was the U16 boys’ winner on one-under par on the boys’ card, and fellow international Amelia Williamson (Royal Cromer) was girls’ runner-up, scoring nine-under par on the girls’ card.Next were Luke Bartram (Rossendale) who was runner-up in the U16 boys’ event on 291 (+3), and Hannah Screen (Berkhamsted) who was third in the girls’ event on 293 (-3). Meanwhile Dominic Clemons (Gog Magog) won the U14 boys’ title on 299. All six players are member of England Golf squads.Humphreys’ overall score was her lowest yet over four rounds, and her bogey-free 67 was a personal best. “I really wanted to go low and that made me very happy,” said Humphreys. The course record was previously set by another Essex player, Gabriella Cowley.“I played really well,” said Humphreys. “Before I went I had a little trouble off the tee but I sorted it out, luckily, and drove the ball well. That helped me because my approach play was really good and gave me the opportunity to get the ball close for my birdies.”Humphreys, Williamson, Screen and Martha Lewis (St George’s Hill) made up an England Golf team which beat Switzerland in an U16 international on the day before the championship began. Humphreys, who rates Pannal as one of her favourite courses, commented: “I played really well in the match so I went into the tournament with a good feeling.”It is anticipated that her first round score of five-under the CSS will qualify her for the final of the Daily Telegraph BMW junior championship in Portugal in November.Caption: Top, an England one-two-three in the girls’ event.

‘Tell me a bedtime story’

first_imgHe instructed his knights to search far and wide, high and low, day and night to find a warrior/teacher that could instruct his knights in the art of combat and lead them into war. Day after day the King’s scouts looked for and sought after the perfect warrior/teacher without success. The King was getting along in years and he knew that the end his time on earth was growing nigh.One one rainy dismal day as the scouts returned, the trumpets sounded the song of success from afar and the people assembled. After all of the ruffles and flourishes were completed into the court of King Artus walked a young and brazen knight Sir Charles from the land of Noll with his head held high and a gaze of steel. He approached the throne of King Artus with arrogance, confidence and fearlessness. All in the court gasped with horror when the young knight did not bow or get on his knees when he stood before the King. King Artus was puzzled by this disrespectful and unprecedented behavior. He asked the young knight, “Why do you not bow and get on your knees before the throne?” “Your Highness” replied the young knight, “if you require that I bow and get on my knees to honor you I will do so willingly and immediately but it will be difficult to serve you and teach your knights the art of war and lead them into battle from my knees. However, I feel in my heart that bowing and trembling before you can never honor you as victory will.” “Ha ha ha,” laughed the King as he sized up this young, brash warrior. “I can have your head in an instant to satisfy the hunger of my dogs but you are right, you can only truly honor me when you honor this kingdom which is constantly being besieged by attackers and usurpers. Can you bring the Steelers Nation peace and victory and what do you need from me in order to accomplish these things?” The young general replied, “The first element that is needed for us to be the conqueror is to possess a strong defense.“Way far away in the land of Texarkana there is a young warrior by the name of mean Joseph of Greene who will be a great defender of the throne and will be the linchpin of our future victories.” The King replied, “I do not need or wish to know any of the details, you have the power to draft into the Army any of the soldiers that you need for us to be successful.” So off went the young leader and over the years he engaged the services of the most feared warriors that the world had ever seen.The knights of the black and gold table had names like Sir Terry of Bradshaw, Sir Lynn of Swann, Sir John of Stallworth, Sir Jack of Ham, Sir L.C. of Greewood, Sir Dwight of White and Sir Michael of Webster. Sir Charles of Noll finished his service to the King after planting the flag of the “Blackandgoldius” on the summit of “Mt. Super Bowlius.” After those resounding victories, the old grizzled general submitted his resignation to Rooney Royal Family. A new young general was appointed to lead and his name was Sir Bill of Cowher. General Cowher paid for the services of mercenaries with names like Sir Rod of Woodson, Sir Greg of Lloyd, Sir Joey of Porter, Sir Jerome of Bettis, Sir Kordell of Stewart, Sir Kevin of Greene, Sir Dermotti of Dawson, Sir Yancy of Thigpen and Sir Bam of Morris. After losing one “Mt. Super Bowlius” battle Sir Bill claimed victory in his second battle in bitterly cold land of Detroit. Time waits for no man and Sir Bill of Cowher fulfilled his obligation to the Rooney Royal Family and he too left the kingdom. The current commanding general is named Sir Michael, Lord of Tomlin. He has molded his army with old, experienced fighters from the age of Cowher with names like Sir Ben of Roethlisberger, Sir Hines of Ward, Sir Casey of Hampton, Sir Aaron of Smith, and Sir Heath of Miller. All had great stories of strength and valor to tell the new fighters with names like Sir Michael of Wallace, Sir Ziggy of Hood, Sir Antonio of Brown and one Sir Santonio of Holmes now in exile. Sir Michael Lord of Tomlin also led his charges to “Mt. Super Bowlius” twice, planting the flag on the summit once. After being defeated in the mountains of Denver heading toward “Mt. Super Bowlius,” returning tired and beaten, he banished his second in command, Sir Bruce from the Kingdom of Arians to the domed city of Indianapolis. Tell me a bedtime story, tell me a bedtime story not about close defeats but no excuse victories.(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: abruce@newpittsburghcourier.com or 412-583-6741.) Listen my children and you shall hear of a tale of daring from both far and near. A long time ago in a land far, far away there was a man who ruled the kingdom of “Blackandgoldia.” King Artus of Rooney was a very wise and kind ruler who ruled his subjects with a firm but very gentle hand. However, time after time his small kingdom faced attack after attack from rogue kingdom seekers and bands of soldiers from all points His knights were fearless and loyal to the king but untrained and he knew in his heart that they would never hold up the chalice of victory. He decided that once and for all he was going to establish borders that no man would dare cross. last_img read more
