Junior Member Jensen Hull Sets Course Record With 66 at Hever Castle Golf Club
Junior golf club member Jensen Hull shot an incredible 66 in a mid-week medal competition on 5 October to secure the course record from the white tees over the championship course at Hever Castle Golf Club.
Despite the fact the parkland championship course has a reputation for providing a stern test of golf, particularly over the back nine holes which boast its very own tricky ‘Amen Corner’, Jensen still produced a score of six under par in conditions that were windy enough to prevent anyone else in the field playing to their handicap.
Further proof that the championship course, comprising the Kings and Queens nines, is no pushover is the fact that it has played host to prestigious events including The Kent Amateur Championship, the Euro Pro Tour and the Kent PGA Championship.
Jensen, whose scorecard boasted an amazing seven 3s and two 2s, began his round in impressive form with a front nine of 32 that was backed up by a 34 on the more difficult back nine.
The 17-year-old, who has been a junior member at Hever Castle since 2009, added the title to his growing list of achievements including that of course record holder on the championship course off the blue tees following a 67 that he shot when just 16.
Jensen got into golf thanks to his father, Michael, whose 7-Day Membership of the Club included free Junior Membership for families, so Michael’s good golfing genes are now being put to good use on the golf course by Jensen.
A -1 handicapper, Jensen is dedicating himself to the game and seeking to make a name for himself in the amateur ranks. Currently he is trying to improve his World Amateur Golf Ranking in order to secure selection for the England Men’s squad and the Walker Cup Team. His ultimate aim is to turn professional and earn his living playing golf on tour.
