Junior Open Category
The Junior Open Boys Gross Division returned with an almost customary tie at the top, as James Brash (Foxhills) and BJGT debutant Jason Pelly (Wentworth) required a countback to separate matching 71s, with James coming out on top by virtue of a better back 9. Harry O’Shea (The Links, Newmarket) was just a single shot back in third.
Roisin Scanlon (Woburn) returned to the BJGT and promptly secured the Girls Gross Division with a total of 78 to edge out Leah Ribano (Northampton GC) who finished second after a round of 80. Tilly O’Leary (Wanstead) took third place with 81.
The Net Division saw some amazing scores, with Maisie Whittall (Gaudet Luce) topping the table with a superb 63 ahead of James Brash who added a runner-up trophy to his day’s haul, but only after a second countback, this time from Zizi-Mai Wilkins (Enville), after they both posted rounds of 65.
The Boys 11-12 Division was just as close as the Junior Open, as the top spot was again decided by a countback, with Harry Howell (Gog Magog) and Ronnie Groves (Enville) carding matching 75s, with the former edging out the Order of Merit leader on this occasion. Third place was again just a single shot back after Josh Gardner posted a fine 76.
6 & Under Category
The full 18-hole short course was the challenge faced by the 6 & Under Division and it was Marcus Karim (Chesfield Downs) who took the spoils after a superb round of 72 ahead of Order of Merit leader, Theo Oderinde (Windlesham), in second (76). Another BJGT debut trophy went to Oliver Kayne (North Middlesex) for his third place finish (87).
No rest as we now head to the 3-day Summer Cup at Macdonald Hill Valley Resort next week, so it’s a flying start to the BJGT comeback!
