This year's County Championship was held at Highgate Golf Club. Stanmore's own Sunil Patel scored rounds of 71 and 72 gross which tied for first but be missed out by one shot on count-back. Still 2nd out of the counties' 70 top players was pretty fantastic. The top 16 players qualified for the County Championship Finals, played as Knockout matchplay. In the first round Sunil beat Tony Lee of Northwood 3&2 and in the quarter final beat Niall Keogh of Sudbury by 1-hole, but lost out to Matthew Alden of West Middlesex in the semi-final who went on to win the event. Congratulations Sunil, you certainly went further than England did in the World Cup!
