18th GREEN AT BERKHAMSTED
The Berkhamsted Trophy, the traditional season opening event for elite amateurs, started on Thursday (4 April) and at the end of play a familiar face to many in Herts Golf stood atop the field, Men's 1st Team Captain Alex Collman of Harpenden Common.
Alex shot an excellent round of 69 (-2) in cold and blustery conditions over the tricky heathland/commonland course and was one of only three under par scores returned on the day. Joss Gosling of Harpenden, recently returned to the Amatuer ranks after a spell as a Professional, was the next Herts based player in the standings after a round of 71 (level).
Round 2 is today, after which is a cut is made and then 36 holes played on the Saturday.
