After being 4 down through eight holes Shaun fought back to be only one down on the 16th tee. He then put his tee shot to eight feet and made birdie to bring the match to all square.

Both Jordan and Shaun birdied the 538 yard par 5 17th hole.

On 18 Jordan missed his birdie leaving Shaun to win the match 1 up and become the 2011 Lincolshire Amateur Match Play Champion.

Commemoration Jug

As a junior member of Welwyn Garden City Golf Club, Nick Faldo M.B.E. won the club championship twice, in 1974 and 1975. On 18th July 1987 at Muirfield he won The Open Championship.
At that time, the members of this club thought it would be appropriate to commemorate his win by inaugurating a competition between club champions, to be played annually at Welwyn Garden City, which has developed into one of the foremost amateur competitions in the land.

The trophy, called the Commemoration Jug, is a claret jug of unique design, not intended to be a replica of the famous Open trophy, but one which suitably signifies the reason for the creation of this competition played over 36 holes on one day.


Carholme 2011 Club Champion Shaun Marshall competed in the competition on Saturday 30th July with rounds of 70 - 71 a score of 141 finishing second one shot behind the winner.

At 6.00am on Sunday 27th March 2010 Shaun Marshall and his dedicated team of Stuart Marshall, Paul Dawson and Clare Welfare set out on the 100 hole challenge, to raise money through sponsorship by members predicting how many Eagles, Birdies, Pars, Bogies and Double Bogies Shaun would get over those holes. The money raised would go to help the course project on re-designing the bunkers.


By 12.00 noon Shaun completed 69 holes, and after four rounds 72 holes, Shaun's score was an amazing 15 under par. At 3.20pm the last put disappeared in the hole on the 10th green with 100 holes completed, 7 under par was the final score.


Over £600 was raised by the members who gave generously towards the fund for the development of their course.


Shaun could not comment on the quality of the sand in the bunkers? As he only went in three bunkers over the 100 holes played.
