Witney Lakes GC: report and results

Witney Lakes Event Report

The persistent rain did nothing to dampen the spirits of the players at Witney Lakes, as a cracking field took to the course for the first BJGT affiliated event of the season.
Simon and his team ran a superb event and we hope that this is the first of many BJGT events at Witney Lakes!

6&Under Division

The 6 & Under division only had two young men out at Witney Lakes, as Alfie Skinner and Theo Oderinde went head-to-head, and it was Alfie who came out on top to claim his first win of the season with a round of 59, two shots ahead of Theo.

7-8 Division

Alexander Dunmall returned to form to head the 7-8 Division by three shots with a fine round of 42, while Sully Donald just edged out his great friend and rival, Jenson Ringer, for second place by one stroke, who in turn required a countback to take third from Eisa Nawaz.
Jasmine Ren claimed the winner's trophy in the Girls Division after her round of 52.

9-10 Division

Fraser Walters (40) produced a superb effort to take the win over a quality field in the Boys 9-10 Division, with fellow Scot, Fraser Mackenzie, being only one shot behind, as he continued his consistent form. Tristan Evans (43) finished third.
Alicia Kelly claimed the winner's trophy in the Girls Division after her round of 50.

11-12 Division

A simply stunning back 9 of 32 from Ronnie Groves saw him fire a level par total of 72 to return to winning ways, giving him a 9-shot winning margin over Bailee Taylor in second, and James Pett a single shot further back in third. Very well done, Ronnie!

Junior Open Division

Matthew Sandy claimed his first win of the season in the Junior Open Gross Division after his round of 77 in difficult conditions put him two shots ahead of home player, Josh Wilks-Hanley, who took home the runner's-up trophy from Sam Epstein in third after an 81.
Megan Bishop came out on top in the Girls Gross Division after her round of 87, ahead of Maisie Whittall in second with a total of 90.
Matthew made it a daily double victory as his Net 70 was enough to take the top spot ahead of the girls, who made up the next two trophy places: Megan Bishop (71) took the silver medal and Maisie Whittall the bronze (72).
Great to see the girls doing so well, hopefully this continues throughout the season and we continue to see an upturn in numbers.
The next event is the first IMG Academy Junior World Championships qualifier for the 13-18 age groups, at St Ives (Hunts) GC, quickly followed by the younger divisions the following week.
