Congratulations to Cameron Weir, the Keith Seddon Trophy winner in this week’s Army Championships which were held at Saunton.
Cam qualified for the knockout stages with a gutsy performance on the West course, in wet and windy conditions on Monday, where he finished 5th in the scratch stableford event.
Moving to the blue tees on the East course he dug deep over two days to take victories on the 17th, 18th and 17th again to secure his place in the final against friend and fellow Scot Steve Canning.
The final was a close encounter with some fine golf on display from both players. A purely struck six iron into a stiff wind on the par 3 13th, watched by a growing crowd of his mates in the Royal Logistics Corps golf team, set up a hole winning birdie for Cam. The composed run of pars that followed sealed a 3&2 win to crown him ‘Reserve Champion’ in the 100th Army Matchplay event.
Selected for another two matches in Thursday’s Inter Corps team matchplay event Cam continued his winning form. Returning to the West course he had a convincing 7&5 win in the morning. Then, in his eighth round in five days, a quality two putt birdie from the front edge of the 17th green secured his sixth match win of the week.
Can't rate Josh highly enough. He is sensitive to the golfer in front of him, adapting his advice and comments to the swing he sees. Backing any comments up with data that is equally as sensitive - a great combo. Josh doesn't try & overhaul a swing and make you feel lost, rather he provides care
Awesome golf course in an unreal setting and very well maintained, highly recommend playing here if you get the chance. Demanding but fair course that makes you think. If you’re getting a caddie ask for Dave, great guy who knows his stuff
At points wide open. The rushes and bushes are what will swallow your ball. The thing that makes this course tricky will always be fighting the wind and judging yardage. Greens true and well paced. Starter was helpful. Clubhouse like a museum of history
