A sunny return!
The BJGT returned to Oak Park GC after a number of years, on a stunning afternoon, to tackle both of their tough courses! Gavin, now the manager (and official BJGT starter for the Woodland Course), and his team, couldn’t have been more helpful and supportive, to help make a memorable afternoon for the players.
Both the Woodland and Village courses provided very stern tests of golf: the 9-hole Village course was taken on by the younger players, while the older (in most cases…) 18-hole players tackled the Woodland Course.
Lewis Beeden claimed the Gross title in the Mixed Division, carding a total of 81, with the win also taking him to the top of the Gross Order of Merit. Jacob Williams finished second and Kiaan Patal third. Eight-year old Jaxson Perry also fired his way to the top of the Order or Merit in the Net Division following a superb 72, with Ben Searle and Patrick McLean-Tattan picking up the Runner-Up and third place trophies on the day, respectively.
Jack Lee continued his winning streak, and reversed the result from Edgbaston GC, as he and Peter Pan headed the field in the 11-13 Division: Jack’s 75 gave him a clear 6-shot victory. With the girls very nearly outnumbering the boys in this age group, there was always going to be a good competition and Jessica Pilgrim claimed the narrowest of victories over Rachel Mackinlay in second.
The 9-10 Division headed out on the Village Course, with Billy Wood taking his second win of the season, which extended his lead at the top of the Order of Merit over Ronnie Groves, who finished in third. Ambrose Eaves came between them to take his first podium finish of the season.
The 7-8 Division was as competitive as ever, with just 5 shots separating the top 6 players: Fraser Walters came out on top after a round of 44, to narrow the gap at the top of the Order of Merit. Matthew Whitaker went one better than his finish at The Bedford by finishing in second place, and Edward Reeves took his first top 3 finish of the season.
The youngest division provided a similar finish to the 7-8s, as single shots separated the top 4 places: Sebastian Duffield made it 4 wins on the bounce, to increase his lead in the Order of Merit, with a total of 45, from Oliver Aghera in second and Dylan Barney in third.
The BJGT now moves on to Cambridge Meridian GC for event 7 of the season.
