The Boys Junior Open Gross Division saw Ben Benetar secure his second victory of the Wales Swing, by taking the Clyne title.  A round of 80 was good enough to give him a two shot victory over Tom Wring, and Tony Cheung, who both carded rounds of 82.  Countback decided that Tom got the silver trophy and Tony the bronze.
Tom however added a gold trophy to his daily haul by taking the Net Division title, as he headed an in credible 3-way tie at the top, as 72, level par, proved to be the best on the day.
He got the decision based on the final six holes, while Tony lost out on another countback, but went one place better by taking the silver trophy. Rhys King completed the three on 72 and took home the final trophy on offer.
There was also a tie at the top of the Girls Junior Open Gross Division, as Ellie Lichtenhein and Karabo Gwet both ended the day on 80, however Ellie got the decision for gold based on the back 9

Yet another tie at the top of the leaderboard happened in the Boys 9-12 Gross Division, as Kodi Dean and William Finlay both signed for superb rounds of 74.
Kodi got the decision based on his 1 under back nine, so he took maximum Order of Merit Points, while William settled for second, despite having six birdies on his card.  Jack Thorpe completed the podium as he got the better of Oliver Hulbert on another countback decision, after both boys had rounds of 78.
William went one better in the Net Division, as his round resulted in a superb net total of 61, to deservedly take the final gold trophy of the Wales Swing.

Vinnie needed a countback decision over Mihir Pasura as they had matching 41’s.

Another thoroughly enjoyable Wales Swing for the British Junior Golf Tour.  We head back into England ahead of the Gatton Manor Classic next Sunday.
It now feels like we are into the business end of the season, with only 4 or 5 Tour events remaining ahead of the Tour Championship, as players look to improve their positions or at the trophy places!
