arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>It was smiles all around as the NSW Open Junior Pro-Am kicked off at Stonecutters Ridge today. Some of the New South Wales budding junior stars enjoyed a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play with one of Australia’s leading pro golfers

arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>Professional Taylor Cooper, Harrison Sanchez (Muirfield), Luke Taylor (Gerringong) and Corey Rae (Cromer) were all smiles as they claimed their inaugural NSW Open Junior Pro-Am prize pack as the winning team.

arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>Luke Taylor also claimed the “nearest the pin” on the 6th hole (120cm).

arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>“It was a great event for pros to play with the juniors, the kids learn a lot,” Pro Taylor Cooper says.

arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>The NSW Open Junior Pro-Am is an initiative of Golf NSW to encourage junior participation in golf and the NSW Open Golf Championship. F&M Supplies have come on board as the inaugural sponsor to support the new program.

arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>“We’d love to see the week of the NSW Open be more than just a golf tournament for good players,” CEO Stuart Fraser says. “Juniors are the future of our game."

arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>NSW Golf clubs were asked to nominate one of their leading juniors to enjoy the experience of playing alongside an Australian golf star on a championship course like Stonecutters Ridge.

arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>And judging by the smiles on the faces as they handed in their score cards, everyone appeared to enjoy the day and the format.

arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>“Hopefully days like today will inspire them to pursue further golf and be the best players they can be,” says Mr Fraser.

arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>Golf NSW hopes the Junior Pro Am will be a permanent fixture.

arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>“We’d like to do as much as we can for the juniors and make it bigger and better for them as well.”

arial,helvetica,sans-serif;”>"Hopefully we might see a star of tomorrow too,” Mr Fraser says.
