GOLF - Stratford's Drury wins nett and gross prizes in first medal of year

Stratford Editorial 18th Apr, 2024 Updated: 19th Apr, 2024   0

JACK Drury won both the nett and gross prizes in the first medal of the year at Stratford-on-Avon Golf Club.

The 22-year-old battled against a full field of golfers in extremely windy conditions and scored a superb five under par gross round of 67 (net 70).

And the plus three handicapper, who suffered from a persistent shoulder injury last year, returned to full fitness with a stylish win.

Drury said: “Over the last few weeks I’ve been working with my coach on hitting a lower ball flight to combat cross winds and all the hours or practice came good last weekend.

“However, it was still really tough going with the course playing long at this time of year to return a bogey free round with five birdies, helped by taking just 27 putts.

“My handicap has now come down to plus four, which is a great confidence boost, as this will also help me to secure entry into the major amateur events this year including the Welsh, English and Scottish Championships.”




Drury works part-time in the golf shop at Stratford-on-Avon Golf Club and has set his sights on attaining a plus five handicap in 2024.
