The final event of the Junior Tour order of merit took us back down to South Wales and The Monmouthshire Golf Club. This was the first time this picturesque parkland course had hosted the Ping Welsh Junior Tour and with the BBQ prepped and the sun set to shine we looked forward to an excellent days golf with around 80 players due to take on the golf course.
The final event of the year also saw players in with a final chance to claim a spot in the Junior Tour final taking place later in the year, and also a final chance to win the overall order of merit.
In the U14’s we were treated to our closest battle for the win all year with the top three all finishing on 39 points. Oliver Christopher (Forest Hills Golf Club) took the top spot in his first event of the year and as a result confirmed his place at the tour final. Lewis Woods, (Bryn Meadows Golf Hotel & Spa) took 2nd giving him his best finish of the year with Ellis Jones (Mond Valley Golf Club) unlucky to lose out to the other two on count back.
Sebastian Williams will be delighted to have sealed the 2019 U14 order of merit. A good start to the year with a 1st and 2nd over the first three events put him in a strong position and some solid performances over the rest of the season meant he took the win by 6 points.
Thomas Edwards (Builth Wells) will have been delighted to have finally got a win in the under 12’s category with a fantastic 60 points which also helped him seal second position in the 2019 order of merit. William Pontin (Pyle & Kenfig) took 2nd position with 58 points and sealed a comfortable win in the order of merit. A great season by William saw him finish first or second at every event this year and will be the one to beat at the tour final. Jayden Skinner (Bryn Meadows Golf Club) took 3rd spot scoring 56 points in his first event of the year, also good enough to see him qualify for the finals. Sofia Benitez produced a fine round of golf to seal the top girl spot with 53 points.
