 Somerset Men's County Championships 2018

The County Men's Championship was held at Bath last Sunday in near perfect conditions. 64 players competed over 36-holes and while there were 5 scores below par no one put two low scores together. After the morning round Taylor Stote from Enmore held a 4 shot lead having recorded a 5-under par 66, however his afternoon round of 5-over 76 (level par 142 aggregate) left the door wide  open and a number of players were later wondering what might have been. Ex Bath junior Jeremy was the one to catch Taylor coming from 8 shots back to tie on 142 with rounds of 74 & 68.

There then followed an exciting 4-hole play-off with both players making birdies on hole 1 and pars on hole 8. Both hit clean tee shots to the middle of the fairway on 17 and when Taylor put his second shot to 5ft and Jeremy put his 20ft past if looked advantage Taylor. However, after Jeremy calmly rolled his putt in and Taylor missed his, it was Jeremy who went to the 18th I stroke ahead. Both players were within 10ft of the pin in 2 shots on 18 but when Taylor missed his birdie chance Jeremy had 2 putts for the title. 

Congratulations to Bath junior Kieran Bye who won the Best Nett prize for Round 1.

Given that the winning score was level par perhaps the overall winner was the course. All of the players were complimentary about its condition.
