Champion finish for Lancashire’s Oliver Clarke

first_img10 Sep 2016 Champion finish for Lancashire’s Oliver Clarke Lancashire’s Oliver Clarke birdied the last two holes on the Hotchkin course at Woodhall Spa to score a one-shot win in the English Boys’ County Champion of Champions tournament. He pipped Dorset’s Bradley Cox (Broadstone), who was playing his first England event; while Wiltshire’s Jake Bolton (Ogbourne Downs) climbed into third place with his closing three-under 70, the low round of the day. Clarke, 18, (image © Leaderboard Photography) is an England boy international who signs off from junior golf with this win and he said: “This is great, I couldn’t ask for more. “I’m especially happy for the county because they’ve been so good to me over the years – I’ve been playing for Lancashire since I was 11.” He finished the 36-hole tournament on one-over after rounds of 74 and level par 73 – despite a continuous downpour and lack of sleep. “We couldn’t get here in time for a practice round,” said Clarke, from Hillside. “We left at 3am this morning and I couldn’t sleep on the way down so I played on about three hours sleep. “I was expecting to be half decent in the first round but I thought I might lose energy in the second – but I didn’t.” After this morning’s round Clarke was three behind Cox, who opened with two-under 71, and the afternoon round developed into a battle between the pair. Clarke caught the Dorset player with birdies on five and six but dropped back with a triple bogey on the 13th after getting into trouble with a bad drive. Cox, who was playing ahead, was soon finishing his round and signing for a two-over total. Behind them George Gill from Warwickshire was also well in contention. “I realised I needed to get it in gear and somehow I managed to do it,” said Clarke. He birdied the long 14th despite having to play his second shot from well below his feet, then he holed a 12ft birdie putt on 17, before pulling off a remarkable up-and-down for a winning birdie on 18, chipping out of a dip and from under a tree to 10ft. This was Clarke’s only appearance at the Boys’ Champion of Champions – although he has held the Lancashire title before, in addition to the county U14 and U16 championships. On the previous occasion he qualified he was unable to play because he was representing England in Canada. Runner-up Bradley Cox (Broadstone) was a little disappointed with his second round 77 but he said: “It was tricky out there, everything was soaking and I’d only had about 15 minutes between rounds.” He went on: “It’s a good day’s work, it’s my first England event and to come here without expectations and to finish as I have is really good, I’m over the moon.” Cox, 18, has played golf for only four years, turning to the sport after he was ruled out of football by injury. “I wouldn’t change it now,” he said. Meanwhile Jake Bolton staged the comeback of the day, scoring three-under 70 this afternoon to improve on his first round by 10 shots and take third place. “This morning I missed fairways and didn’t hole any putts. This afternoon I was a little bit more aggressive, but not overly, and I knew that if I shot three or four under I would move into the top five.” Bolton and Danny Daniels (Essendon) who finished sixth are among four players flying off tomorrow to represent England in the Canadian International Junior Challenge. George Gill (The Warwickshire) dropped back into fourth place after a double bogey on the 17th proved costly. Click here for full scoreslast_img read more

Tony Award for SA puppet company

first_img9 May 2011South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company has won a coveted Tony Award for the life-size puppets that are at the heart of the highly acclaimed West End and Broadway play War Horse.The Cape Town-based company has already accepted the honour for the 2011 Tony Awards taking place later this year. The award was an exclusive one, meaning that no other puppet-making companies were eligible for it.Basil Jones, Handspring co-founder, said: “It was wonderful to be able to announce it on the factory floor.”The award will be presented to the company on 12 June 2011 at the 65th Annual Tony Awards ceremony.Another South African export, world-renowned playwright Athol Fugard, will be honoured with a lifetime achievement award at the ceremony.Horses at warThe life-size cane and plywood horses used for the play War Horse have earned the puppet company kudos for its contribution to the creative industry. The play has received five Tony nominations – for best play, best direction, best scenic design, best lighting design, and best sound design.The play, which premiered at London’s National Theatre in 2007 and started its Broadway run in April 2011, depicts the story of a boy’s horse taken by the British cavalry to participate in World War One. It is based on the 1982 novel of the same name, written by British poet, playwright and children’s author Michael Morpurgo.Jones said: “The roots of War Horse were in a production called Tall Horse that Handspring did with a Malian puppet company and which a National Theatre creative team saw in South Africa.“We had hoped the National Theatre would take Tall Horse, which featured a giraffe, to London, but instead they came to Handspring with a proposal to do work based on animals and war.”The horses were made by a team of 12 craftsmen using durable material to make sure the wear and tear of the horses didn’t affect the play during its running.The original set of horses lasted for 1 000 performances and didn’t need professional puppeteers to work them, although Handspring sent a puppeteer to help during the first season of the play.For its use of these magnificent creations, the London run of War Horse won an Olivier Award, an Evening Standard Theatre Award and the London Critics’ Circle Theatre Award for design.Creative collaborationThe 30-year-old puppet company has collaborated with many innovative South Africans in the creative industry, including theatre directors Malcolm Purkey and Barney Simon and renowned painter, filmmaker and director William Kentridge.Kentridge, who has worked closely with the company, said: “Audiences see the puppeteers at work in pieces like War Horse, but you can’t stop yourself believing the reality of those horses, it’s kind of magical.“I think it’s fantastic that their years of work and their extraordinary skill get this recognition.”Kentridge and Handspring first collaborated in 1992 on a play based on German playwright Georg Buchner’s Woyzeck on the Highveld.Awarding theatrical excellenceThe Tony Awards were established in 1947 after the American Theatre Wing sought a way to award those who excelled in theatre.The Tony Award is regarded in the arts industry as theatre’s most prestigious accolade.The awards were named after Antoinette Perry, an actress, director, producer and philanthropist, who was the leader of the American Theatre Wing during World War Two and had recently passed.Although the Tonys were established in 1947, for the first two years of the awards there was no medallion to go with the award.The medallion was design by Herman Rosse in 1949, after the designers union, United Scenic Artists, sponsored a medallion design contest, and has been used ever since.First published by MediaClubSouthAfrica.com – get free high-resolution photos and professional feature articles from Brand South Africa’s media service.last_img read more
