NGL Knockout Finals Day

Farthingstone’s Sam Bird secured an emotional victory in the NGL Club Champion of Champions tournament as he earned a countback success from Collingtree Park’s Jenson Parfitt at Wellingborough GC.

With his home club closing later this year, Bird became the last Farthingstone golfer to win a County individual trophy as the Scratch handicapper edged out Parfitt thanks to birdies on the 16th and 18th holes in a round of 76.

The Northamptonshire Ladies Club Champion of Champions title went to Overstone Park teenager Amy Nunn as a round of 86 earned a one stroke victory from Gill Hodgson.

In the Fourball KO final, Andrew Harrison and James Newton beat Adam Harris and Stephen Harris, while Overstone Park defeated Farthingstone in the Seniors Team Final.

Wellingborough’s Jon Harris, meanwhile, made the most of local knowledge to defeat Jack Brown (Brampton Heath) in the County Men’s Matchplay Singles Championship Final.
