2016 Southern Junior Classic

The final round to this year’s Southern Junior Classic was contested this morning in ideal golfing conditions. With a number of players within striking distance of the round one frontrunners the day was set to be an exciting finish.
 
In the boys section, Jack Rasmussen took a three shot advantage into today’s round as Jasper Stubbs and Kasey Cathcart looked to apply the pressure and reduce the overnight deficit. However Rasmussen was rock solid all day, signing for a level par 72 to capture victory in the first 2016 SAJG tournament at -3.
 
Although Jasper Stubbs had a late barrage of birdies for a two under-par round of 70, he would fall just two shots of the eventual winner but claim honours in the U14 boys section. Also notable was Harrison Whykes who shot two under today to be placed third.
 
After holding the round one lead by two shots, Shanaiah Fernando had a solid round of one under-par 73 to take outh the girls Southen Junior Classic title. Fernando has been in some stellar form of late after notching up a victory at the SAJG Signaure Tournament back in Novemeber last year.
 
Cobram Barooga’s Steffanie Vogel was Fernando nearest challenger following rounds of 78 and 74 for a tournament tally of 152.
 
There was some unbelievable scores in the overall handicap section but Sothern’s very own Lachlan Robinson claiming the top honours after handing in a round of 63 today to sit nicely beside his 64 and to beat his handicap by a massive 17 shots!

2016 Yarrawonga Junior Open

The second and final round to the 2016 Yarrawonga Mulwala Junior Open was cancelled this morning after heavy rain overnight. With greens under water a decision was made to shorten the event to 18-hole and award the prizes based on yesterday’s round on the Murray Course.  

13 year old Nathan Page has again continued to impress with his victory today. His scintillating round of three under par 69 yesterday notches up his second Stuart Appleby title for the winter school holidays.  Cobram-Barooga’s Steffanie Vogel walked away with the overall girl’s title after signing for a very solid round of level par 72, six shots ahead of her nearest competitor.    

Yarrawonga Mulwala’s Benjamin Casley took home the overall handicap honours after recording a nett score 63, 9 shots better than his 16 handicap.

The 2015 Yarrawonga Mulwala Junior Open finished in style this morning as players took to the well-manicured Murray course. The Murray course meanders through the towering river gums and favours those that control the ball well from tee to green. Calm conditions again greeted players this morning with the sun making an appearance on more than one occasion throughout the day. 
 
With many of the field struggling today, Mikihisa Matsumoto fired a brilliant two under-par 70 to complement his opening round of two over-par for a 36-hole tally of 144 and the clubhouse lead with only two groups remaining. Trailing by a single shot with only one hole to play, overnight leader Antony Majstorovic wasn’t going to let his maiden title slip though his fingers. Majstorovic held his neve coming down the 18th hole to finish with a birdie and tied for the lead with Matsumoto. 
 
Both players, along with a 50 other onlookers gathered on the first hole of the Murray course for a sudden death playoff. Majstorovic was the first to play and nailed his drive right down the middle while Matsumoto flared his drive into the right trees. Looking stymied behind the trees, the Woodlands member struck a brilliant 8 iron over the canopies to 15 feet for an uphill birdie attempt. 
 
Majstorovic’s 80m approach from the fairway was too strong and was left with a 30 foot putt from a few metres off the green, downhill and right to left breaking. What happened next was nothing short of extraordinary, he tapped his putt only just hard enough to make the putting surface and then the slope took the ball on a long journey directly into the cup for what was the most unlikely birdie. Matsumoto had his putt to tie but it missed on the low side leaving Antony Majstorovic as the holder of the 2015 title. 
 
Heading into the final round tied with Melanie Foster, Kono Matsumoto broke away with the lead at the turn with a two shot buffer over the 18 year old. Kono proceeded to birdie the par 5 11th hole and then followed it up with seven straight pars to close with a level par 72 and capture victory by six strokes with a total of 146 or two over par.      
 
It was a tight affair in the overall nett section with three players tied on a tournament total of 138, six under their respective handicaps. Making the most of the calm conditions, it was Cobram Barooga’s Jordan Bovalina who took home the honours after returning rounds of 70 and 68 from his 13 handicap. 
 
Still on a high after scoring his first hole in one, Heritage’s Joshua Lee returned the best nett round for the tournament with a stellar 63 this morning – nine under his handicap!
 
Congratulations to all off the age division winners today!
 
The Yarrawonga Mulwala Junior Open caps off what’s been a fantastic school holiday period with many great scores and lots of new names on the podium.

2015 Peninsula Junior Open

The 2015 Peninsula Junior Open moved to Sorrento Golf club this morning for the second and final round. The sun was shining brightly as the 86 contestants navigated their way around the perfectly manicured fairways.
 
Taking a substantial seven shot buffer into today, Toby Walker held his nerve to prevail as the boys Champion with a round of six over-par 76 for a tournament tally of 143. However, today was no walk in the park as Cranbourne’s Jack Rasmussen applied the pressure to the eventual winner all day – slowly closing the gap. 
 
Heading down the final hole Walker found himself with a one stroke advantage over Rasmussen but a brilliant approach shot from the Cranbourne member  left him with an uphill 10 foot birdie putt to tie as Walker was scrambling to make par. Rasmussen’s putt narrowly lipped out for a birdie three leaving Walker with an 8 foot putt for outright victory. With his maiden SAJG title within his sights, the 15 year old stood over the most important shot for the past two days and confidently rolled home the win.       
 
After sleeping with the lead overnight, Kallista Do was seemingly unphased by the tricky Sorrento layout as she managed her way to a round of one over-par 72 to capture victory. Her first round of 74 at Portsea yesterday afternoon set the foundation for her success with a 36-hole tally of 146 or three over-par. The Huntingdale member finished a very comfortable eight shots ahead of Yarra Yarra’s Shanaiah Fernando and a further nine strokes in front of little sister Joelynn.
 
Meanwhile a personal best score of 61 nett from Corey Wakeman today was more than good enough to walk away with the top honours in the overall handicap section. His scintillating round this morning saw him overtake the overnight frontrunners to finish the tournament seven better than his handicap.
 
A big congratulations to all of the age division winners.p winner (gross) as well as three Divisional Cup winners (nett) over the year. There is only a requirement to play 54 holes for the year to be eligible for the Regional Series Cup and 54 holes to be eligible for the Divisional Cups.

2015 Signature Tournament

Shanaiah Fernando showed why she is fast becoming one of Victoria’s best junior golfers firing a 3 under par 69 at Gardiners Run today to take out the Stuart Appleby Signature Tournament. Fernando was followed closely with a 2 under par 70 from Riversdale’s Alice Fan. Fan won the under 16 Girls Gross section as well as the overall runner up.
 
In the Boys event Heidelberg’s Toby Walker won by two strokes from Cranbourne’s Jack Rasmussen with a 1 under par 71. 
 
Both Walker and Fernando have enjoyed some great form over the past 12 months both were selected in the School Sport Victoria 17 and Under Team to compete in the National Championships in August played in Canberra. They continue to put themselves in a strong position to represent Victoria at the Junior Interstate Series in Tasmania next year.
 
Imogen Jones from Royal Melbourne won the overall nett event with a 62 playing off 14. Jones beat her own personal best score by 11 shots and with a gross score of 4 over par 76 also took out the under 14 girls gross. It’s not often that you have a nett 64 and get beaten however unfortunately for Cranbourne’s Ashleigh Hall that did happen however I think she would still be happy with scoring her own personal best. Another mention should go out to Madeline Jukes from Mildura who had nett 67 to win the under 14 girls nett.
 
Tony Chen from Riversdale won the boys under 14 with a nett 77 while Charles Kueh from Kew took out the under 14 boys nett with a 68. Christian Chierego from Riversdale won the under 16 boys gross with a 75 gross and Kew’s Mikel Eduard won the under 16 boys nett with a nett 69.

2015 Signature Tournament

2015 Murray River Junior Masters

The third and final round to this year’s Murray River Junior Masters reconvened this morning at Tocumwal Golf Club in blistering heat coupled with an intense northerly wind. All eyes were on the overnight leaders as the tournament looked to crown the 2015 champions.
 
Heading into today’s round Alex Hilliard held a comfortable four shot buffer over her nearest rival. The victorious Victorian Girls State team member held her nerve in the challenging conditions to capture the title at an impressive 54-hole total of one under-par and seven strokes clear of Alizza Hetherington and the Steffanie Vogel. What made Hilliard‘s win even more impressive was the fact that she maintained her composure over the four days and never lost the lead despite the strong competition.
 
Today’s final nine holes certainly didn’t disappoint in the boys section with a nail biting finish unfolding in the final two hours of play. With a number of players looking to close in on Toby Walker’s overnight lead of just one shot it really was anyone’s title. However like Hilliard, Walker held his nerve to take home the silverware with a wire-to-wire victory following rounds of 71, 72 and 74 for a one over-par tally.
 
Andre Lautee quietly snuck up the leader board with a round of one under to be placed on a tournament total of two over-par to narrowly miss out on top honours. Meanwhile in the final group, both Cooper Gill and Jamie Scapin nipped away at the overnight leader’s heels all morning to only fall short by a single shot along with Lautee.
 
Rhys Rigoni ran away with the overall handicap title as the Jubilee member effortlessly signed for rounds of 71, 60 and 65 to beat his 21 handicap by an almost unprecedented 20 strokes.
 
Congratulations to all of the age division winners and a very big thankyou to both Cobram-Barooga and Tocumwal Golf Clubs for presenting the courses in fabulous condition.
