Llantrisant & Pontyclun GC: report, results and photos

Llantrisant & Pontyclun GC - Event Report

Our only event to survive Covid-19 in Wales for the 2020 season but what a fantastic event it was!

The huge on-site scoreboard made for a very professional touch and the kids certainly loved seeing their names displayed.
The Welsh weather also stayed fair for the players and once again the scoring was fantastic making it another very exciting day.

Junior Open Category

The Boys Gross Division of the Junior Open required a countback to separate the top 2 as Sebastian Williams and Sachin Kohli both fired 73โ€™s, with Sebastian taking the honours on his BJGT debut with a better back 9, Ryan Davies followed them home in third four shots adrift to take the bronze medal, also on his first BJGT start.
The Girls Gross Division was headed by Maisie Whittall as she continued her fine season in carding a total of 77 for a commanding victory over Morgan Mellin (89) in second and Sofia Benitez (97) in third.
Sebastian Williams, having shot a gross 73 from a 13 handicap, unsurprisingly claimed a second gold medal in the Net Division as his 60 put him 2-shots ahead of Seren Kitaba-Davies who was another Tour debutant to finish in the medal places, while Sachin Kohli added a bronze medal to his Gross silver in taking third place with his 65.

11-12 Category

The 11-12 Division was topped by Finley White for his first victory of the 2020 season as his 89 was good enough for a 2-shot winning margin to Harry Stachura in second, with home player Rhys King (97) taking home the bronze medal after a countback decision over Jayden Skinner.

9-10 Category

Thomas Maclean, making his second start on the BJGT, improved his 9th place dramatically to take a 1-shot victory over Ellis Kerr who took another second place trophy home after his 42, with Dylan Jones edging third a further shot back but only after a countback decision over Harry Dean based on a batter last 6 holes.

7-8 Category

Nathan Nolan was another player to rise up the leaderboard, as he finds his feet on the BJGT, to secure his first win after a fantastic 41, Dominic McKenna continued his consistent form after his win at South Essex finishing just one stroke behind Nathan to take the silver medal while Mihir Pasura also improved on recent results to take third place a further shot back and with it a bronze medal.

6 & Under Category

The top two on the 6&Under Order of Merit produced matching 45โ€™s to prove just how close and competitive this age group is, Theo Oderinde claimed maximum points and close the gap to Marcus Karim with a better score over the last 6 holes, as it looks likely the Champion will be decided at the Tour Championship!
Our thanks go to Llantrisant & Pontyclun Golf Club for their hospitality and faultless running of the event today, we look forward to returning in 2021, the BJGT now heads to Royston Golf Club on the other side of the country tomorrow as the Order of Merit tables really start to hot up!
