The Boys Junior Open Net Division saw Luca Randall return to form and claim a first Major title of 2022, as his superb round of 76 left him with a Net total of 66, to deservedly take the honours and the boosted Order of Merit Points moving him to second on the Order of Merit.  Luca finished just a single shot ahead of Ben Benetar, who finished with a superb total of 67 to extend his lead at the top of the overall table. Finley White took the final trophy place, as he finished 7 shots behind, but headed the rest of a tightly packed field to secure a nice piece of glassware.
The Gross Division saw the top two trade places, as Ben, with a round of 74, took the winner’s trophy, and maximum Order of Merit points. Ben impressively heads both tables as things stand! Luca secured second place after his fine 76, and a second piece of glassware.  Sam Jackson took the final trophy place on his first start of the season with a round of 81 and added a nice trophy to his cabinet.
The Girls Junior Open Net Division was headed by Sapphire Boyce, who took her first Major title of 2022.  Her round of 74 gave her a single shot victory, as she looks to chase the top spot on the Order of Merit table. Karabo Gwet grabbed the runner-up trophy after her round of 75.
The Gross Division was topped by Maisie Whittall, with a round of 78. Masie continues her impressive run of results, and maintains her charge up the Order of Merit table.
Ellie Lichtenhein maintained her place at the top of the OOM table by taking second place, and the runner-up points, after her round of 81. This race may well go right to the end of the season.
Yet again the Boys 9-12 Division (playing from the red tee) produced some incredible scores, as has been the case all season, with Harry Dean going lowest here in the Net Division.  Harry broke through with his first win of the season, and picked up a Major title in the process. His 64 gave him top spot and maximum Order of Merit points.
Yash Bid chased him home in second, after a superb effort left him on 65, which also moved him up to second place on the Order of Merit.
Alvin Fan also collected his first piece of glassware of the season by taking the final trophy place, finishing third, again just a single shot further back on 66.
In the Gross Division Oliver McDonnell returned to the winners circle to claim another Major Title, and the boosted Order of Merit points, which tightened his grip at the top of the overall table as his brilliant 78 gave him a 2-shot victory.
Oliver Hulbert was the player to push Oliver hardest, as his fine round of 80 placed him in second on only his second start of the 2022 season.  William Finlay taking home the final trophy on offer just a single shot further back on 81.
Single shots also separated the Top 3 of the 6&Under Division, but Rex Pickavance continued his superb debut season on the BJGT, with his round of 43 good enough to earn him the Wales Open title, and extend his lead at the top of the Order of Merit table.
Raef Diwan grabbed another trophy for his cabinet, as he also continues a fine first season on Tour, finishing with a total of 44 here, and the points moving him up into the Top 5 of the table.
Yixuan Liu took the narrowest of victories over Brianne Yang in the Girls Division, as both girls finished on 53, but Yixuan got the countback decision based on her final 6 holes.
Brilliant Brody MacIver was another player to return to winning ways, as the trip down from Scotland was made all the more enjoyable by taking the Boys 7-8 Wales Open major title, with a superb round of 38, this gave him a 3-shot victory margin over a quality field.
Zachary Blayney and Marcus Karim needed a countback decision to separate them, and decide second and third places, as they both fired rounds of 41, but it was Zachary who grabbed second place, leaving Marcus in third, as the Top 3 on the Order of Merit continue to push each other, showing just why they are there by filling the podium here.
Hajira Marfleet showed that the girls can always cut it with the boys, as she fired a superb 44 to take the Wales Open Girls Division, but the score would have placed well up the overall leaderboard.
For the second major running, Vinnie James and Jenson Ringer tied at the top of the 9-10 Division, last time they could not even be separated by countback, this time Vinnie’s 37 got the decision over Jenson’s based on the final 6 holes, as he made it back-to-back major titles, and move himself into the Top 5 of the Order of Merit, while Mihir Pasura took third place 3-shots back after his round of 40.
Georgia Groves deservedly took the Girls 9-10 Wales Open title with a superb round of 38, putting her just a single shot behind the leading boys, a very impressive display.
The BJGT now moves on to Llantrisant & Pontyclun Golf Club for event 2 of the Wales Swing, another stunning course with a rather unique and interesting opening hole.
