Junior golfers compete round two of Digicel Junior Golf Series

 

Junior golfers completed round two of six in the Digicel Junior Golf Series on December 11.  The 18-hole groups played a Stableford format in this round, where points are scored based on the number of shots relative to par taken on each hole, rather than counting the total number of strokes taken in the round.  This format also took handicaps into account with lower handicap golfers giving strokes to higher handicap golfers on certain holes.

In this format, Derek Peene took the lead in round two for the senior boys (white tees) with 37 points, ahead of Aaron Jarvis and Joe Purton who both scored 31 points.  In the junior boys 18-hole division (red tees), James Bould finished first with 32 points, just edging out Andy Hastings with 30 points and Tom Dickens followed in third place.

In the girls’ division, Holly McLean lead round two with 34 points, closely followed by Lauren Needham with 31 points and Lily Marsh played her first tournament taking the top spot in the girls’ 9-hole division.

The boys 9-hole group followed a stroke play format and had a very strong showing with nine-year-old, Sam McLean, taking first place with a 43.  Second and third place were awarded on a count-back with Luke Dodson taking 2nd and Zach Brooks 3rd, both shooting 44 for nine holes.

 

The Digicel series and the junior team qualifiers will continue back in Cayman in January.
