2013 Junior Averages Announced

The Junior Averages encompasses the Geoff Ogilvy Trophy (boys) & Future Champions Trophy (girls); both championships are played for throughout the year with the player with the lowest scoring average being awarded the premier prize.

In 2013, the Geoff Ogilvy Trophy was hotly contested amongst a talented field with Brett Coletta (Sandhurst GC) narrowly defeating Frazer Droop and David Michelluzzi (2012 Champion). Coletta finished with a stroke average of 68.714 from 19 rounds, his final two rounds of the year proved to be the difference carding 67 and 68 at the Murray River Junior Masters to notably win the Murray River title and overtake his contenders in the Geoff Ogilvy Trophy.

The Geoff Ogilvy Trophy also has an under 16 and under 14 section. Konrad Ciupek’s (Victoria GC) steady form won him the under 16 section with a stroke average of 70.266. In the under 14 section Cameron John (Waverley GC) was a deserving winner carding 43 rounds for the year with an average of 71.142.

Julienne Soo (Woodlands GC) triumphed in the Future Champions Trophy for the second year running with an average of 71.928. Soo’s exceptional golf in 2013 also awarded her the 2013 Champions Trophy which is the open age equivalent of the Future Champions Trophy. This is a remarkable effort at such a young age! Kono Matsumoto (Victoria GC) closely followed Soo to finished runner up with an average of 73.071.

Alike the Geoff Ogilvy Trophy, there are under 16 and under 14 sections in the Future Champions Trophy. Cherrie Tan (Yarra Yarra GC) prevailed in the under 16 section with an average of 75.642. While Matsumoto who finished runner up in the under 18 section, also won the under 14 section for the second year in a row.
