Our Golf squad have had a busy few weeks recently with two of Sydney’s premier junior tournaments running back to back.
The first was the Jack Newton Junior Golf Sydney Harvey Norman Week of Golf played over 5 days at 5 different golf courses.
Our boys performed well at some of Sydney’s tightest layouts, including Twin Creeks, Castle Hill, Avondale, Bankstown and Muirfield.
In the 16-17 age group, Cameron Rios-Ceballos bounced back from a first-round 83, with great rounds of 72, 70, 69 & 70. He finished 4th in that division and 5th overall!
Also in the 16-17 boys section, Chazz Ritchie played consistently well for 7th place (20th overall), with rounds of 78, 78, 72, 77, 72. Mason Gounder placed 16th, scoring 77, 81, 75, 79, 80. Miguel Villa finished in 24th place, scoring 85, 81, 77, 83, 78. Blake Murray faired well in rounds 2 & 3 but unfortunately was unable to play the final 2 rounds.
In the 14-15 age division, Kade Webber rallied to a tie for 13th, with rounds of 83, 72, 76, 74, 74. Former WSAS athlete Coby Carruthers, had a super week in this age group, placing 3rd and was only 14-over par for the tournament.
Blake Hodges was our only entrant in the 13 years boys division and improved throughout the event for 5th place. His scores were 85, 82, 77, 7, 73
Just a few days later, some of the boys were invited to Castle Hill for the Nick Faldo Series. This is an invitational event conducted over 36 holes, with the winners of each age group qualifying for the Nick Faldo Series Asia Grand Final.
Our boys didn’t win this time but can be very proud of their efforts.
