LEADING Isle of Wight golfer Jordan Sundborg played his part in ensuring Hampshire recorded their biggest win over Dorset in more than 20 years.

The Shanklin and Sandown Golf Club member, who has blossomed into one of the county’s leading golfers, won his singles and foursomes matches as Hampshire hammered Dorset 10½-1½ in the county’s opening South East League match of the season at Brockenhurst Manor Golf Club.

Sundborg, part of Hampshire’s unbeaten South East League finals team last year and winner of this year’s British Universities Order of Merit while at Stirling, paired up with and Stoneham’s Owen Grimes, the reigning Hampshire, Isle of Wight and Channel Islands amateur champion, raced into a lead by the turn in their foursomes match, but won it on the last.

Jordan, part of the line-up to face Kent in Hampshire’s next league game tomorrow (Sunday) and county champion in 2017, comfortably won his singles match against Dorset’s Andrew Robson 6 and 5.

However, team captain Colin Roope has a selection headache, as he prepares for the trip to Kent, on how to accommodate Islander Conor Richards, one of Hampshire’s two United States-based college golfers, in his eight-man team.

Richards, also a member of Shanklin and Sandown Golf Club, will return after playing in the US College National Finals in West Virginia.
