Allen Park in the sunshine for US Kids Golf North of Ireland Summer Tour
The weather was perfect for the second event of the weekend at Allen Park. The course and in particular the greens were in superb condition for the young players.
Allen Park marked the half way point in the 2018 U.S. Kids Golf North of Ireland Summer Tour. The good weather continued with the parkland course resembling a links. After three events the order of merit in some age groups was becoming clear and in others it was evident that it would be a battle to the last event.

Parker Bonnes shot an excellent 6 under par to take first place in boys 6 and under.Tomas Owens took 2nd place with a score of 2 over par with Seve Trowlen in 3rd place. Freddie Mairs finished in 4th place and Luke McKenna in 5th.
Tiernan Bradley continues his fine form taking yet another 1st place from Atharva Rajeshkumar and Carter McLarnon who shared 2nd place. Atharva has been very consistent with three 2nd places in his last three events while Carter improved on his 3rd place the last time out in Lurgan. Rhys McDowell took 4th place from Rory Stewart in 5th.
Ollie McEvoy showed no signs of slipping up taking 1st place from Maddox Meers in 2nd. Zac Hay took 3rd place from Lewis McGarry in 4th place. At the halfway point in the Summer tour Ollie has a firm grasp on boys 8.

Alex Graham improves his score in each competition to date to take 3rd place from Parker McKnight who took 4th place in his first tour event.
Oliver Gartley enjoyed his second win on the summer tour with Samuel Lee-McNamara taking 3rd place from Daniel Hobbs in 3rd.
Thompson Gedge and Louis Goodwin couldn’t be separated after 18 holes tied for 1st place. So for the second consecutive event Louis found himself in a playoff for 1st place. Thompson won the playoff and took 1st place, however, the playoff experience Louis has gained will no doubt be put to good use in the future.
Sam Rutledge took 3rd place and played some great shots along the way, his tee shot on the 15th to three feet being one of the highlights. It was great to see the camaraderie of the boys in the older age groups following the playoff between Thompson and Louis.
Michael Wilson continued his good form matching his 1st place last week in Lurgan with another 1st place from Ryan Dakhane in 2nd.
Sheà Williamson improved on his 2nd last week to take 1st place by one shot from Kaeden Anderson in 2nd with Noah Bickerstaff taking 3rd. This age group is developing into quite a battle.
