What a start to the 2018 BJGT Season!
Glorious sunshine, course in amazing condition and a full field of 81 players…we should probably also mention the sub-zero conditions!
This obviously made things very difficult, but the players put on an amazing display, which made for a fiercely competitive event, resulting in multiple tied results.
The 6&Under division saw joint winners, as Sebastian Duffield and Dylan Barney carded matching 44s. We also have to give a special mention to Marcus Karim, who at just 4 years old, made his BJGT debut!
The result was similar in the 7-8 division, as Michael Haywood and Jack Meakin (another BJGT debutant) tied at the top, with matching 38s, with Matthew Whitaker taking 3rd place on 43.
The 9-10 age group win was claimed by Ronnie Groves with a fine 38, 2 shots ahead of Billy Wood, who, in turn, was 3 shots in front of Henry Price in 3rd spot.
Our new 11-13 Division, which is proving to be hugely popular, and as it turns out very competitive, was headed by Jack Lee, the second player to claim a win on his first outing, with Connor Tallentire and Christian Wall finishing tied in 2nd place following a pair of 82s.
The Mixed Division saw Luca Thompson take the top spot in the Girls Gross Competition, with an 87, while Erin Earl claimed first in the Girls Net Competition with a 70.
Meanwhile, the Boys Gross Competition saw yet another tie, as Seb Cave and Jake Sheridan couldn’t be separated after excellent 77s, with Manato Nakatani in 3rd, 2 shots back.
The Boys Net Competition, due to players only winning one trophy on the day, was taken by Jake Plumb after posting a 72, with Tom Milton just 1 shot further back to take the runner-up trophy.
Many congratulations to all those who played, you are the reason that we are growing the game!
We look forward to hosting some warmer events this season.
