IMG Junior World Championships Qualifier 11-12 & 13-14 years – Maylands Golf Club

San Diego sun for Day 1 of the IMG Academy Junior Championship Qualifier!

However, it wasn’t all plain sailing, as an accident a mile down the road early in the day caused many of the players to become stuck in the logjam of traffic, threatening their tee times and participation.
With some quick thinking and re-working of the start sheets, we managed to allocate everyone a new time, maintain a full field, and get them out with only a 9-minute delay!

11-12 Boys

Oliver Toyer claimed the first place on the BJGT JWC Team, as he won he Boys 11-12 Division with a fine round of 80 off the yellow tees, with the field extremely bunched behind him.
William Bailey took the runner-up place on a countback from Antoni Hawkins, after matching 81s, but Antoni’s score was an incredible 13 under his handicap!
James Brash then grabbed the final qualifying place on countback from Oliver Kelloway after they both posted rounds of 82.

11-12 Girls

The Girls 11-12 Division saw only one player gain a Junior World Championship place, as Sunny Wang showed her class with a fine score of 83.
On her BJGT debut, Matilde Santilli took the second place trophy from Zoe McLean-Tattan in third.

13-14 Girls

After a shaky start, Jessica Pilgrim held her nerve to grab the Girls 13-14 age group by a single shot from Rachel Mackinlay after rounds of 82 and 83, respectively, and with it their places on the 2019 BJGT Team.
They will be joined in this division by Ankita Anand and Ciara Rushmer in third and fourth, as they both met the scoring requirement to secure places.

Special thanks to our Ambassador, The Jazzy Golfer (pictured below with all the first place winners), for joining us on the day to see the juniors in action; we look forward to seeing Jazzy again later in the season!
