Arron storms to Faldo Series win – joy too for Burke

first_img Tags: Dorset, England Men’s Team, Essex 15 Nov 2019 Arron storms to Faldo Series win – joy too for Burke Arron Edwards-Hill produced a stirring final round fightback to win the overall 23rd Faldo Series Grand Final in some style.The England Men’s squad player carded a brilliant six-under par round of 64 to emerge triumphant in the event staged at the Al Ain Equestrian Shooting and Golf Club in the United Arab Emirates.There was also success for Dorset’s Louise Burke in the girls’ under 16 event when she claimed victory in her section thanks to a final round of 66.The course has proved something of a lucky charm for England Golf players in recent weeks. Josh Hill from the boys’ squad became the youngest ever winner of a ranking professional event when he won at the same venue on the MENA Tour last month.Now Edwards-Hill has joined his countryman in writing his own bit of history in the desert.Watched by six-time major champion and series founder Sir Nick Faldo, the Essex golfer started his third round four shots adrift of South Africa’s Dylan Melville.But Edwards-Hill showed no fear as he followed up two rounds of 68 with a 64 to post a winning total of 10-under par.The Chelmsford golfer fired seven birdies in his excellent final round.Five birdies in a row from the 10th hole proved to be the key to his success and allowed Edwards-Hill to motor past Melville and win by two shots.Burke’s four-under par final round blew away the rest of the girls’ field.A run of four birdies in five holes before the turn gave Burke – an England Under 16 player – final round momentum.The Broadstone GC member eventually won by six shots from Japan’s Sakura Kawakami.Photograph credit: Leaderboardlast_img read more

Baseball tournament to benefit community waterpark project

first_imgThe Stonewell Development Society – a non-profit group behind the effort to construct an outdoor waterpark next to Rotary Lake – organized a second annual baseball tournament to raise money for the project. Johanna Kunz, project manager CEO of the society, said the tournament will be played in a fun format where each time a team wins a game they will be given a playing  card, and the team with the best poker hand at the end of the tournament wins.“It takes out the competition part, because we want to make it a really fun ball tournament,” said Kunz. “If you’re not the best ball player, you can just come out and have a great time, have a lot of fun and support a worthwhile project.”The tournament begins on Friday from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m., continues on Saturday from 9 a.m. to midnight and again on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It costs $150 per team to register for the entire weekend, and interested teams can do so by calling Kelly Svennson at 250-219-5779. Kunz said anyone who wants to play but doesn’t have a team should call Svennson to see if a team can be organized.- Advertisement -Also, for every team that registers, the society will fill up a backpack full of school supplies to be donated to students who need them.For those who are not interested in entering the tournament but who want to support the waterpark project, there will be lots of other activities going on throughout the weekend. Kunz said beer gardens will be open from noon until midnight on Saturday, and that evening, spectators will be treated to a performance by What the Moon Brings, winner of the Battle of the Bands contest at this year’s Grizfest.“Even if people aren’t involved in the ball tournament, we’re encouraging people to come down and just take part, watch the ball games, come through our beer gardens and listen to the band,” she said.Advertisement She added there will be many more games and contests games such as a home run contest, a silent auction, relays and 50/50 draws, as well as treats and activities for children, including face painting.  Mr. Mikes and Boston Pizza will be on site serving up hot food during the tournament. Camping for the weekend is being offered on the Lakota Agriplex grounds.Kunz said right now the society has raised about $50,000 towards the goal of $400,000 to complete the waterpark project. She said they had great success fundraising earlier this year at the wine festival they hosted at the Bear Mountain Ski Hill in June, and through the partnership with this year’s Bushstock music festival in July, and she said those events and the baseball tournament are examples of the kind of events she would like to happen annually.“My goal is to set up fundraisers that consistently happen throughout the entire year, so at every event we can build on the momentum from the previous year.”Advertisement She added the baseball tournament last year raised $4,000 and received a very positive response from participants, so she expects it will do very well again this year.More information on the Stonewell Development Society and the Mr. Mikes Kinsmen Community Waterpark Project can be found online at www.communitywaterpark.org. Kunz said they are always eager to have new members get involved with the society.last_img read more
