BJGT Masters - Frilford Heath

Considerably better weather here on Masters Sunday than Augusta has seen, as Frilford Heath played host to the first Major of 2023.

Our thanks go to James and his team for a wonderful day on our first visit to the club.

The 6&Under division saw a reversal of the top 2 from Woodhall Spa, as Louie Goh (44) edged Aryan Lally (45) by a single shot, to claim the first Major title of 2023, while Oscar Robertson (46) was only a further shot behind in third.
Brody MacIver showed what a tight division the 7-8’s is going to be this season, as he took the Masters title by a single shot over last weeks winner, Zachary Blayney, after rounds of 38 and 39 respectively, with Oscar Ross (42) completing the podium places.
Hajira Marfleet made it 2 wins from 2 to starts the season in the Girls division. Hajira’s 44 gave her a Major title, and left her 5th on the overall table, another impressive result.
Leo Taylor (43) made it an early season double in the 9-10 division, taking a second win in a matter of days, but this time he needed a countback to decision over Darcy Eaton (43).  Leo took home the winners trophy, Darcy 2nd, and Harry Odell (44) was only a single shot further back in third.
The Boys 9-12 Gross division saw Alexander Dunmall (76) go one place better than the week before to become a Major winner, but the margin was only 1-stroke. Rhys Hughes (77) started his 2023 season in impressive fashion to take the runner-up place, while Arjun Sawhney (79) secured a third place finish, as the top 3 all broke 80.
The Net division was another that saw single shots separating each of the top 3 places, Arjun (64) took the honours, a Major title, and a second trophy on the day, ahead of Evan Fowler (65) coming home a close second, with Rhys (66) taking third place, and also bagging a second piece of glassware.
The Girls Junior Open Gross division saw the 2022 Champion, Maisie Whittall (78), start her title defence with a Major victory, finishing 6-shots ahead of Tilly O’Leary (84) in second place.
The Net division was topped by Anya Ayaru (66) after a superb round, to take her first Major title ahead of Amelie Jones (73) in second.
The Boys Junior Gross division was headed by Oliver Brightman (77) as he took the BJGT Masters title ahead of Josh Saw (79) who took the runner-up place, with Luca Randall (80) completing the top 3.
Luca’s round subsequently gave him the Net division title, and a second trophy on the day, with a final total of 71, he finished 3-shots clear of Shiv Ahluwalia and Josh, who both had rounds of 74, with Shiv getting the countback decision over the back 9d but Josh also doubled his trophy haul.

The BJGT now heads to Cambridge Country Club, to decide the second half of the IMGA Junior World Championships Team, heading out to San Diego in July.
