A huge field of more than 260 players converged for the 2017 NSW Junior Championships at Toukley GC and Shelly Beach GC.
June Song (Avondale) held off spirited fight backs from Cassie Porter (Queensland) and Grace Kim (Avondale) to win the NSW Junior Girls Title at Toukley. Song was brilliant all week, recording four straight under par rounds, to finish the tournament at -7 and win by three strokes. Song never surrended the lead on Friday, and wrapped up the tournament with an eagle on the par 5 12th hole. Porter was one of the finds of the tournament, with the 14 Year Old firing her second four under par round for the week, to share second. Porter had six birdies, whilst Australian Girls Amateur Champion Grace Kim had four of her own as the girls finished locked at -4.
The JNJG State Age Championships were also straightforward, with Claire Shin (Concord) winning the 12 Years and Under Division by a whopping 48 shots. Brielle Mapanao (Stonecutters Ridge) and Annika Rathbone (Bankstown) won the 13 Years and 14 Years Divisions, whilst Song was also crowned JNJG State Age Champion in the 15 Years Division. Kim picked up the 16 Years Title, whilst Concord Junior Doey Choi won the 17 Years Division in her final JNJG State Age event.
Two of our local girls – Pyper Hollis (Kew) & Madeleine Laws-Farrell (Port Macquarie) participated in the event and both thoroughly enjoyed the event and experience.
Madeleine: “I loved every second, I spent the week with my favourite people around the sport I love the most”.
