British Junior Golf Tour 2019 Swings Into Action At The Bedford GC
Junior Open Category
The boys’ section of the Junior Open was headed by Max Weaver, but only after a countback with his club mate, Teddy Hall, after matching 77s, with Micah Blowers two shots back, on 79
Ciara Rushmer made a winning start in the girls’ section, just a shot behind the leading boys, as she posted an impressive 78, ahead of Luca Thompson and Louisa Molloy.
The mixed Net Division saw Ciara Rushmer take her second gold medal of the day, as her 78 resulted in a Net 65, two shots in front of Nick Curran’s 67, who was subsequently two shots ahead of Jack Meakin, on 69.
11-12 Age Group
Jake Valentine made a winning start to his 2019 season in the 11-12 Age Group, with a fine 75, a 2-shot cushion to Oliver Kelloway and Ronnie Groves who tied on 77, with Oliver edging the runner’s-up place on countback.
Sunny Wang produced a superb 79 to take the girls’ gold medal, with Zoe McLean-Tattan in second and Fraya Shiell in third.
Lila-Belle Nacca took the girls’ title, and also almost beat the boys, with her 44 beating Maisie Whittall into second on her BJGT debut.
There was another first tour victory in the 7-8 division, which we’re sure will prove a very hotly contested age group, as Zahn Bopiah headed the quality field by 3, after a brilliant 37, with Matthew Whitaker in second on 40, a single shot in front of Fraser Walters.
6 & Under Age Group
The 6 & Under division saw yet another new winner in the shape of Freddie Buck, who took gold with a one-shot victory over last year’s champion, Sebastian Duffield, after a 38 and 39, respectively, with Marcus Karim adding a bronze medal to the family’s haul, just two shots further back.
The Tour now moves on to Event 2, at Oak Park GC, in Surrey – this will include the IMG Academy Junior World Championships Qualifier for the 6 & Under division.
It’s great to be back!
