Mark Stockdale and Leah Ribano relished their status as the lowest respective handicap golfers in the 2020 NGL Boys and Girls County Championships as they grabbed the top prizes at Northampton GC.
After jointly holding the lead with Peterborough Milton duo Jacob Williams and Euan Herson following a three-over-par 75 in the morning, two-handicapper Stockdale (Overstone Park) surged four shots clear with five birdies in a second round 70.
Ribano, who plays off three, rarely looked in danger of missing out on the Girls gross title on her home course as she carded consecutive one-over-par rounds of 74 to finish 16 strokes clear of Shivani Karthikeyan (Milton).
Northants County members were successful in the net categories as Joe Jaggard clinched the Boys crown by a single shot from Jody Parfitt (Collingtree Park) with a 36-hole total of net 137, while Eloise Feely-Ley won the Girls event on 139.
The Champion Club team prize went to Peterborough Milton’s B as the quartet of Euan Herson, Matty Mills, Charlie Pearce and Kai Raymond lifted the Scottish Cup. The Shoe & Leather Trophy was claimed by Northants County’s team.
