Tour Championship: report, results and photos

A fitting end to an amazing season!

After a week of terrible forecasts, the skies provided the perfect weather for the British Junior Golf Tour season finale, while Foxhills GC was again the ideal venue for this prestigious Order of Merit deciding event. Huge thanks to everyone at the club for making us feel so welcome!

6 & Under Age Group

The 2019 Tour Championship winner is Freddie Buck and rightly so after a stunning 18-hole total of 71 (+3) on The Manor Course! He was followed home by Toby Chahrvin on 76, with Sebastian Duffield in third, two shots further back. Jasmine Ren collected the Girls' winner prize, with a score of 82.

The Order of Merit came down to the wire with the Top 2 being decided on the result at Foxhills and Sebastian Duffield’s third place on the day was enough to see him claim, and retain, the 2019 Order of Merit Champion trophy. Marcus Karim, who will be in the same category next year, finished the season as runner-up, while newly crowned Tour Champion, Freddie Buck, finished in third.

7-8 Age Group

Fraser Mackenzie capped a stunning debut season on the BJGT by winning the Tour Championship after a round of 77 (+3) on Bernard Hunt. Adian Van Emmenis, however, almost spoiled the party, pushing Fraser all the way, finishing just a single shot behind, while Matthew Whittaker secured third place with a total of 82. Georgia Groves took the Girls' winner trophy.
After an incredible season, unsurprisingly our 2019 Order of Merit Champion is Fraser Mackenzie, who deservedly took home the stunning silver trophy, ahead of fellow Scot, Fraser Walters, in second, and Oliver McDonnell in third, in what has been a hugely competitive and talented division.

9-10 Age Group

Maxi Moore is the new 9-10 Tour Championship winner after his round of 83 on Longcross was good enough to put him four shots ahead of the Girls' Tour Champion, Maisie Whittall, on 87. Michael Haywood and Tristan Evans were three shots further back, while Rosie Salter took the runner-up place in the Girls' division.
Luca Randall, who was 9-10 Order of Merit runner-up in 2018, went one better this year, taking the top spot and becoming the 2019 Order of Merit Champion. Maxi Moore was runner-up and Michael Haywood finished the season in third.

11-12 Age Group

Ryan Gavin proved to be the season's stand-out player in the division, adding the 2019 Tour Championship to his record with a superb round of 74 (level par) on Bernard Hunt, while Ronnie Groves secured second place with a round of 78 and Jayden Phipps took third place two shots further back.
Ryan Gavin topped off the season with the 2019 Order of Merit Champion crown. Ronnie Groves, the 9-10 Champion in 2018, ended the current season in a very creditable second place, with Sam Marshall taking third place in the final OOM standing.

Junior Open Category

The Tour Championship was dominated by Satria Cumming, as he secured both the Gross and Net Division titles with a Gross total of 74 (+1) and Net 71 on Bernard Hunt. He was followed home in both categories by Tyler Weaver (76; 73). Teddy Hall (79) secured third place in the Gross Division, while Sachin Kohli (75) took third place Net.
Ciara Egan became the Girls' Tour Championship winner with a round of 81, ahead of Elle Redgewell in second.
The Net Junior Open Order of Merit title was secured by Oliver Brightman. Oliver and runner-up, Zoe Mclean-Tattan, went head-to-head at the Tour Championship as the incredibly close contest went down to the wire. Tyler Weaver jumped into third after his Tour Championship finish.
Tyler Weaver became the 2019 Junior Open Gross Order of Merit Champion after a superb run to the top of the table in the second half of the season. Jack Lee, the 11-13 OOM Champion in 2018 took the runner-up spot, with Nihal Shah taking third place.

Caddie of the Year

Wow, we received some incredible nominations for this most warranted prize: the effort that parents, grandparents and other family members make does not go unnoticed by us!
Paul Donald, Paul Ringer, Paul Dunmall, Ken Mackenzie and Andy Goodridge all thoroughly deserved the bubbly, but there could only be one winner and the title went to…
Ken Mackenzie, who makes incredible sacrifices to bring Fraser down for all the events, whilst offering words of encouragement to all. The award couldn’t have gone to a more deserving person - we look forward to seeing Ken wear his ‘Caddie of the Year’ bib with pride next season.
Our thanks go out to everyone who played on the BJGT this year, it's fantastic to see so many of you out and enjoying competing with your friends.
With the 2020 schedule only three weeks away (and BJGT membership now open), with even more events, in wider regions, we look forward to welcoming even more of you onto the UK’s biggest and best junior tour next season - please keep spreading the word!
