Ritchie Dawe from the host club made local knowledge pay dividend, as he took the honours in the Boys Junior Open Gross Division – his solid 72 with birdies at either end of the round gave him a 2-shot victory to take home the winner’s trophy on his first BJGT start.
Jaden Hanson then headed a 3-way countback decision to grab second place ahead of Jules Hardy and Amanvir Nerwan, as all three boys signed for 74s.
Jaden had the best back 9, level par, while Jules took the final trophy place as his 1-over back nine meant that he finished in third.
The Net Division saw Jaden go one place better and take the top spot, but again he needed a countback decision over Amanvir and again it was his back 9 that did the trick – this also moved him up into the Top 5 on the Order of Merit table.
Amanvir picked up the Net runner-up trophy to make up for the disappointment of missing out in the gross division after a very good performance, while Ben Benetar completed the Top 3 after finishing with a solid 69.
The Girls Junior Open Gross Division saw a commanding performance from Maisie Whittall, as she finished with a round of 75 that included back-to-back birdies at 17 and 18, to give her an 11-shot victory.
She was followed home by Amelie Jones in second place, as she continues her improvement this season.
The places were then reversed for the Net Division results, as Amelie’s round resulted in a 71 while Maise finished with a 75, as the two girls took all the spots and plenty of OOM points between them.
Thomas James collected his first BJGT win of the season in the Boys 9-12 Junior Open Gross Division, as he edged a countback decision over Riley Banks after both boys posted a total of 79.
The better back 9 from Thomas gave him the winner’s trophy and maximum Order of Merit points, but Riley continues his move up the OOM table.
Zach Wheeler completed the trophy places finishing just a single shot behind the top 2 after his round of 80.
The Net Division saw another first time winner, as Aden Pabari took home his first winner’s trophy, as he produced a superb round of 63 to lead the way in this red hot division.
Ralph Barnett continued his excellent mid-season form, as he added another trophy to the cabinet by claiming second place here with another fine effort in posting a 65, while Euhwan Kim completed the podium a further shot back after his 66.
On a day for first time winners, another added his name to the honour roll in the 9-10 Division: this time Sebastian Leverett grabbed the win with a round of 42 to take home a very nice piece of glassware.
Seb’s round of 42 was matched at the head of the field by Albert Lees, but the final 6 holes split them, leaving Albert with the runner-up trophy but some good OOM points, as he looks to climb into the Tour Championship qualifying places.
The final trophy went home with Darcy Eaton, as he finished just a single shot behind the lead pair, grabbing the decision of a 3-way tie with Aryan Kapoor and Jenson Ringer, as they also posted rounds of 43, with one shot separating the top 5 players.
Zachary Blayney produced a brilliant display to finish level par (35) for the 9 holes – having started with a birdie, he did very little wrong for the whole round.
This gave him a 3-shot winning margin over Michael Egan in second after his round of 68, as both boys vie for places in the Top 3 of the Order of Merit with only three points separating them as things stand.
Charlie Aldridge finished just a single shot further back in third after another strong performance.
A standout performance from Hamza Marfleet in the 6&Under Division saw him claim yet another win this season, as he looks to chase down the top spot in the Order of Merit.
He fired a superb 2-under par round of 33, including back-to-back birdies, on his way to a 6-shot victory over Rex Pickavance and Aryan Lally, who both had rounds of 39.
The resulting countback left Rex in second place based on a better final 6 holes, with Aryan settling for third place.
Brianne Yang led the Girls Division with a superb round of 42 that put her 5th overall – a wonderful round despite big the smallest player in the field, which shows yet again that the girls are more than capable of giving the boys a run for their money.
