QLD’s Walsh & Sullivan win NSW Junior Championships

Despite horrid weather conditions early on in the week and the reduction of the event to 54 holes the juniors returned some blistering scores in this year’s Subaru State Championships on the NSW Mid North Coast. The event this year took place from 2-5 July at Coffs Harbour and Sawtell Golf Clubs and incorporated not only the State Age Championships but also the NSW Junior Boys and Girls Championship, the Country Junior Boys and Girls Championship, and the Inter-District Teams Championship.

The contingent from Queensland made their mark on our state by storming to victory in the NSW Junior Boys and Girls Events. Amy Walsh (Emerald Lakes) opened with a superb round of six under par 68 to lead the entire tournament field. She followed that up with rounds of 77 and 76 to finish with a tournament total of 221 and capture the NSW Junior Girls title.

Fellow Queenslander Jack Sullivan (Robina) secured the NSW Junior Boys Championship with a three round total of four under par 209, five shots ahead of his nearest rival.

This year was the first time JNJG incorporated the Country Junior Boys Championship as well as introducing a Country Junior Girls Championship. Central Coast junior and Cromer Golf Club member Robbie Hogan took out the Country Junior Boys Championship with a total of 217. Catalina junior Hayley McNeill won the inaugural Country Junior Girls Championship with a 54-hole total of 230.
