SGD Junior Pennant prevails over Cranbourne Team
South Gippsland District defeats Cranbourne GC Junior Pennant Team.
Well Done to our juniors today!!!
The official score was 4 matches to 2, so it looked like a convincing win, however this was not the case.
Overall today we got an incredible 125 shots over our six opponents. Cranbourne were definitely a very strong team, with their first 4 players being single figure handicappers.
So before the first ball was struck off the tee, I think it is fair to say that we were a little intimidated. This was reflected over the first few holes by all our young players, but once we settled and realised that if we played our own golf, we were still a chance.
Leading from the front was Charlie May (LLGC) whom never lost control and came out with a win.
Jacob Taberner (LLGC) loves his golf and with the gift of youth where you don’t worry and just go for your shots, resulted in another win.
Tim Boler (LGC) once again had a slow start but grinded his way back into the match. Determination is his key and he produced another win for us.
Oscar Harry (LGC) had an up and down day. His opponent Rob Taylor got the jump on him but to Oscar’s credit he came back to be all square at the turn. He tried to fight it out but his opponent came home very strongly for the win.
Will Christensen (LLGC) was as consistent as ever and I always felt that he would get over the line which he did. The three Lang Lang Juniors really used their local knowledge to push home good wins.
Jessica Harry (LGC) was our captain today and led our team with pride, her end result does not reflect how she approached her game. Although she went down to Tom Ryan, I think the best shot of the day was her second on the 9th, leaving it within 1 foot of the pin.
Congratulations to our young team.
Well done to the parents and helpers who make it possible for them to play.
