Round 1

The opening round to the 2015 Junior Country Regions and Kay Mahlook Shied kicked off under clear skies at both Heathcote and Kyneton Golf Clubs this afternoon. Six districts comprising of Goulburn Valley, Peninsula, North Eastern, Dalhousie, Geelong and Ballarat fought it out at Heathcote in the Division A. Meanwhile Western, East Gippsland, Murray Darling, Wimmera and South Gippsland were challenging for the B division along with a number of districts and clubs in the Kay Mahlook Shield at Kyneton Golf Club.

Goulburn Valley district are out in front in Division A with a team tally of 466 after the first round at Heathcote. Taylor Bicknell led his team to the top of the table after the 4 marker fired a round of one over-par 72. North Eastern find themselves just a single shot in arears of the round one leaders and with Ballarat a further two strokes in arrears it really is anyone’s game at this stage.  

Ballarat’s Corey Hasse is in a strong position to defend his individual stroke title from 2014 after signing for a stellar one under par 70. However Liam Gransden will be looking to put a dampener on Hasse double crown when the Wodonga member starts tomorrow tied with the defending champion.

In the B division at Kyneton, East Gippsland are comfortably poised at the top of the table after today’s opening round. The district finished with a total of 494 with constant rounds from all of the team members. Next door neighbours in South Gippsland are running second and will need to make up some ground tomorrow morning after their tally of 537.

Golf Peninsula are the overnight frontrunners in the Kay Mahlook Shield with a team score of plus 4. The team was led by Siobhan Stephan who returned a fabulous score of 6 up for the day. This year’s field for the Shield was particularly impressive with 27 girls making the trip to Kyneton to contest the 2015 title.
