Records broken at home and away

Andrew Marshall - Old Course record 2013EUROPEAN TOUR professional, Andrew Marshall (pictured above), has broken the Royal Ashdown Forest Old Course record with a 65.

Playing in the TP Tour event held in October the Norfolk-based pro shot 33 on the front nine including four birdies and 32, with an eagle at 12 and two more birdies, coming home. His only blemish was a six at the par five fifth.

Having shot a level par 72 on day one, playing in torrential rain, Marshall’s course record saw him romp home six shots clear of the rest of the field.

And in a marginally less prestigious tournament but with an equally impressive performance, Royal Ashdown member, Julian Hill, broke the course record on the Blue Course at the Berkshire with a 63.

Fancying a round with his son, Archie, who was home from University, Hill was told that the only slot available on either course at the Berkshire was in the monthly medal on the Blue Course, which they duly signed up for. After seven holes, Hill was six under par.

Having missed short putts on the eighth, 13th and 16th Hill carded a 33 coming home to go with his front nine of 30 in a round of eight threes and a two including an eagle at the 528 yard, par five twelfth (see scorecard).

On returning home, Archie Hill, declared to his mother that his father’s round was the best he had ever seen, but ‘should have been even better.’
