IMGA Junior World Championships 2021 Qualifier at Bourn Golf & Country Club - Event Report
Many thanks to all those who took part in the first qualifier and congratulations to all the winners!
It was a very early morning for the 15-18 and 13-14 age groups, starting from both the 1st & 10th tees, with the first groups out at 7 am.
The Bourn Golf & Country Club clubhouse is currently undergoing major extension and refurbishment, but the course was in fabulous condition and the near-perfect playing conditions, albeit slightly cooler and fresher first thing, made for an exciting day, with some low scoring expected.
The Boys 15-18 Division
The Girls 15-18 Division
The Boys 13-14 Division
With the course clearing, it left the way clear for the younger age groups to battle it out for their places in the afternoon, as they also had a two-tee start running from 12.30 pm.
The Boys 6 & Under Division
The Girls 7-8 Division
The Boys 7-8 Division
The Girls 9-10 Division
The Boys 9-10 Division
The 11-12 Boys Division
The Boys 11-12 Division was always going to be a difficult one to call, but Hayden Sarfo (Worcester) produced the leading round, signing for a fabulous total of 76 to take the first place on Team BJGT, ahead of Sullivan Goddard (Bawburgh), who claimed the second spot after a round of 81. Justin Chenu (Chelsfield Lakes) finished in third place, narrowly missing out on the qualifying places by just one shot.
The Girls 13-14 Division
The Girls 13-14 Division was the oldest of the afternoon players and it was another very tight competition that saw Heidi Man (West Byfleet) claim the top spot, and with it the first qualifying place for the Junior World Championships next July, with a round of 82. Zara Gardam (Shooters Hill) grabbed the second team slot after her round of 84. Chrisha Thapa (Oak Park) followed them home in third, just a single shot behind.
As it stands, we plan to hold the second qualifier on 18 April 2021, at St. Ives (Hunts) GC. We know that the players who just missed out on qualifying will be desperate to add their names to Team BJGT representing the UK at the 2021 IMG Academy Junior World Championships, but the second qualifier will obviously be subject to any COVID-19 restrictions in place at the time of the event and subject to any instructions that we may receive from the organisers in San Diego in the meantime. The second qualifier will open for bookings at the end of October, when the BJGT 2021 season schedule will be released. Stay tuned!
Many thanks to all those who took part in the first qualifier and congratulations to all the winners! Thank you to Bourn Golf & Country Club for being wonderful hosts once again and for being great supporters of the Tour. We look forward to returning on 4 October, for the penultimate 2020 Order of Merit event before the Tour Championship.
