ON PAR: Historic golf competition returns to spiritual home in Northwood

 Published on: 10th August 2023   |   By: Darius Morgan   |   Category: Uncategorized

An historic golf tournament was held at Moor Park Golf Club once more last month.

The Carris Trophy was founded at the local club by Austin Carris in 1935. In 1988, the competition was adopted into the English Boys Under 18 Open Amateur Stroke-Play Championship.

Each year, the nation’s very best amateur golfers compete for the trophy, with top professionals Justin Rose, Sandy Lyle, and Ken Brown among the previous winners.

The tournament is now played at various courses; however, every five years it returns to its ancestral Moor Park home.

After four days of superb golf from July 25 to 28, Bury St Edmunds-born golfer Tyler Weaver emerged victorious with a score of -16.

Tyler said: “I’m really happy with my week. I was definitely comfortable this morning because I knew I was playing good golf and I just wanted to get out there and get going.

“The course here at Moor Park has been in great condition; the greens were rolling really well and it was nice to play a course in such superb condition.

“It was nice to have loads of my England teammates there supporting me at the end, as well as my parents, so I really can’t thank them all enough. It has been a great week!”
