The Springs Golf Club BJGT Junior Open: results, report and photos

BJGT welcomed by The Springs!

It was the final round of the US Open and The Springs was set up in a similar fashion (just have a look at some pictures of the bunkering!), thus providing a very stern test for the players.
However, as usual, the scores were fantastic, and to use a quote from a parent at the end of the day, ‘probably the best course we’ve played on the BJGT’ - high praise indeed!

Huge thanks go to the entire team at The Springs for making us all feel so welcome, for presenting the course in fabulous condition and for all the help on the day. We also very much appreciated the fact that the owner of Darwin Escapes made the effort to come to watch some of the juniors tee off and we know that he was impressed, so well done, everyone! 🙂

Junior Open Category

The Junior Open saw some superb play, as three 78s topped three 79s - a single stroke separated the top 6!
Zoe McLean-Tattan fired a brilliant 78 to take the Girls Gross title, and would have claimed the overall top spot on countback had the boys and girls been mixed. Jessica Brown was in second after a fine 81, with Molly Miles (85) in third.
Jaxson Perry took the honours in the Boys Gross division on countback with a brilliant 78, edging out Joseph Drummond, who continued his good form on the BJGT, as Harry O’Shea (79) also needed a countback to take third place ahead of Mark Stockdale and James Brash.
The Net Division was unsurprisingly headed by Zoe McLean-Tattan, as her gross 78 resulted in an unbelievable Net 59, with Jaxson Perry in second, as his 78 left him with a Net 65. Oliver Brightman posted his second consecutive 66, which was ‘only’ good enough for third on this occasion.

11-12 Age Group

Ronnie Groves returned to winning ways in the 11-12 Division, and extended his lead in the Order of Merit, as he took first place with a solid 77, ahead of Sam Marshall in second on 85 and Zak Armstrong (95) in third.

9-10 Age Group

On his BJGT debut, Harjai Milkha Singh proved that he has the same winning touch as his Dad, as he won the 9-10 Division after a fine round of 41, to finish just a single shot ahead of Luca Randall, with Michael Haywood completing the top 3, two shots further back.

7-8 Age Group

Fraser Walters staked a claim for ‘round of the day’ with a magnificent total of 34 (-2) to deservedly take home the 7-8 title, finishing six shots clear of fellow Scot, Fraser Mackenzie, with Alex Dunmall taking third place after his round of 41.

6/Under Age Group

Marcus Karim began his warm up to the IMG Academy Junior World Championships with a win in the 6 & Under Division, as he signed for a lovely round of 38, two shots in front of Freddie Buck (40) and Leo Boniface (41), the latter also travelling to the US in July as part of Team BJGT.
No let up in the Tour schedule, as West Derby GC hosts the BJGT for another affiliated event next Sunday (23 June), followed by Three Rivers Golf and Country Club a week later - let's hope that the great British summer kicks in soon!
