Cumberwell Park – what a venue, what a storm!
Fabulous facilities, superb variety of courses, and a brilliant Par 3 with an awesome signature hole – the BJGT made the most of them all!
Just like The Masters, it all started with a fun Par 3 comp.
On Saturday afternoon, 16 pairs enjoyed a Texas Scramble on the Par 3 course, where the juniors played with their parents, with much of the focus being on the island green on hole 8.
Plenty found the water, but this was half the fun and it was indeed a lot of fun for all involved and a great warm-up for the strokeplay competition.
Team Bygrave (Callum and Steve) tied with Team Randall (Luca and Neil) at the head of the field, as they both shot 28 (+1), with Team Aldous (Joseph and Iain) matching Team Nacca (Lila-Belle and Franco), to finish tied 3rd on 29.
Saturday was capped off with an incredible lightening show in the skies over Cumberwell, which looked amazing until it knocked out the power to the whole site!
Sunday’s main event saw glorious weather for the players, as they took to the Red and Orange courses.
An outstanding level par round of 70 from Jack Lee saw him take another win in the 11-13 Division, but only by a shot from Alex Marshall in second, as they proved why playing from red tees is where juniors of this age should be playing.
Satria Cumming put in another fine performance in the Mixed Division, as his Gross 74 was enough to take the honours from George Johnson, while Olivia Lee took the girls win with an 82.
The Net Category saw a brilliant round from Jenson Berridge, as his 62 deservedly came home in front from Jaxson Perry in second, after a round of 70.
The hugely popular 9-10 Division had the closest finish of the day, as 4 players carded rounds with just a shot between them: Billy Wood, Harry Burton and Ronnie Groves all finished with 44s, as Cameron Hughes took the outright win by a single stroke.
On his second BJGT appearance, Fraser Walters claimed his first win after a 41, with Michael Haywood in 2nd, just two shots back and Owen Roach used his home advantage to finish 3rd.
Sebastian Duffield continued his superb rich vein of form to claim his third win in a row in the youngest division after a round of 42, with Dylan Barney in second, a single shot ahead of Sully Donald in 3rd.
Live scoring made a successful comeback and was enjoyed by all on both days. We will endeavour to add live scoring to selected events throughout the season.
