GOLF: Smith lifts Hall Cup at Oxford City

6:00am Tuesday 8th July 2014

JOSEPH Smith came out on top to lift Oxford City’s historic Hall Cup on Sunday.

The 36-hole event was first contested at the club in 1903.

Smith added his name to the long list of winners with excellent rounds of 75 and 74 to end on 149.

The 27-year-old finished two shots clear of his nearest challenger.

Ian Bound, one of the club’s most talented golfers not to win the title, again had to be content with runners-up spot after carding rounds of 78 and 73 for a 151 total.

l DAVID Hedges has moved nearer to claiming a hole in one on every par three at North Oxford.

The longstanding member holed his tee shot at the 133-yard 11th with an eight iron in Thursday’s roll-up.

It was his seventh hole in one at the club and means he has now aced five of the course’s six short holes.

Only the tenth, at 221 yards the longest of North Oxford’s par threes, has so far eluded Hedges.

l HADDEN Hill are running courses for juniors during the summer holidays.

The tuition from professional Tom Hartley is open to non-members and lasts from 9.30am-3pm.

The courses are being held on August 5-7 and 19-21, and cost either £25 for the day or £65 for three days, which includes lunch.

Payment is required at time of booking.
