Results of SGDGA Junior Pennant Round 1.
Junior Pennant commenced on Sunday 31/1/2016 at Korumburra Golf Club. 23 Juniors from Korumburra, Leongatha, Wonthaggi, Phillip Island and Lang Lang Golf Clubs played in the first round.
Pennant runs for three weeks before the finals.
January 31 – Korumburra GC
February 7 – Lang Lang GC
February 14 – Foster GC
February 21 – Finals need to be on a neutral venue. Both Leongatha and Phillip Island have indicated they are available that day.
All juniors, available from all clubs will play each week. Clubs may enter as many players as they wish, but if they have more than 5 players, the 5 lowest handicap players results count toward the team result. Players must be U21. Team members from one club will not necessarily all play team members of the same another club.
In our case LGC are represented by three players being Jessica Harry, Ryan Thomas and Tim Boler.
Round One results were:
Jessica Harry def Bailey Wood (Lang Lang) 6/5
Ryan Thomas lost to Charlie McKenzie (Lang Lang) 6/5
Tim Boler lost to Isaac Batty (Phillip Island) 3/2
Jessica a nice effort to bring home the win.
Not a bad effort considering Korumburra doesn’t suit everyone and this week’s game is at Lang Lang so I think the boys may be more at home there.
Three of the other Clubs have teams of 6 players or more competing, highlighting the need for LGC to round up some more interested juniors. Josh and John are working hard on this aim through their Kinder and School Programs and Junior Clinics but it would be nice if we could muster some junior players who come down this way on holidays or who have grandparents down here, to also take advantage of signing up and playing for this great Club.
Keep up the good work Team and we look forward to Round two at Lang Lang. We are all barracking for you.
