More than 70 of the best young golfers in Wales defied wet and windy conditions to complete the finals of the Ping Welsh Junior Tour at the St Pierre Marriott Hotel and Country Club.
The day marked the culmination of the season long series of competitions in which players earned Junior Tour Order of Merit points to qualify for the Finals, with around 400 players taking part in the five regional events.
Wales Golf Championship Manager David Wilson said, “We had a great finals day at St Pierre, notwithstanding the difficult conditions. It was tremendous to see so many talented young players taking part with loads of support from family members. We are very grateful to the club for allowing us the use of the course and for helping us with the organisation of the event.”
The Under 14s age group was won by home club player Harry Paterson with 41 stableford points playing off a handicap of 10; an exceptional score in the conditions.
Following closely behind in second and third were Junior Tour regulars Joe Jones and Jac Roscoe from Pennard and Caernarfon.
Bargoed’s Ryan Williams continued his good year, having already won the Under 12s order of merit he took the Tour Final as well with a score of 65 modified stableford points, the best nine hole score achieved by any player in the Tour this year.
Whitchurch’s Ryan English was second with 60 points and Harry Coombs from The Glamorganshire third with 59.
