The steady Port Royal breeze combined with the quick greens made life difficult for the juniors today but they made for a great equalizer as all divisions are fairly tight at the top.

Dakota Lamb was going well on the front nine, making the turn at 4 over par, but struggled on the more exposed back nine to finish with a 17 over par score of 88. Kenny Leseur figured out the greens but put himself in trouble too many times off the tee and sits only one shot back after finishing with an 89. Samson Douglas is in third after a 97.

Port Royal is a long, tough course at the best of times and even the relatively mild conditions today resulted in some higher than expected scores, so to ensure that the event is both competitive and enjoyable, the BJGA created a 12 hole Red Tee Division. The two BJGA members back for Christmas break from boarding school have taken a slim lead - Joe Watson and Alex Withers-Clarke each shot rounds of 64 for the 12 holes, 1 shot ahead of Ryan Clements. There is a group of players including Kian Mooney (73), Marcos Furr and Benjamin Betschart (both 74), a little further behind but by no means out of touch.

In the novice division, which is played over 6 holes per day, Callum Pearce has taken an early lead after a round of 40. The other three players in the division are tightly bunched with Finn Moseley, Finn Watson and Eliza Withers-Clarke scoring 47, 48 and 51, respectively.

 

The full field results are HERE.

Congratulations to Kenny Leseur who fired a brilliant, bogey-free round of 68 at Riddell's Bay. This is Kenny's second sub-par round this season - well done Kenny! 

In the Red 18 hole division, Kian Mooney took the honours with a round of 107. Ethan Sousa was second this week.

Bnjamin Betschart was the low score in the 9 hole group with 53, closely followed by Aaron Kuhn and Adam Perry, the latter having joined the red tee group for the first time this week. 

Well done all players and the full results are on the tournament page HERE. Next week we are at Tucker's Point on Sunday afternoon. We are becoming very light on volunteers for starters and marshals again - if you can help on any week please sign up on our Sign-Up Genius Site.

Welcome to William Nokes who was playing this first BJGA round and will be in the 9 hole group and also to the newly promoted Nicholas Weikl who is up from the Intermediate Group.

If we do not have a starter and at least one marshal signed up by Thursday evening, we will need ot consider cancelling play. 

In our first Sunday tournament, Kenny Leseur blitzed Belmont Hills for a 1-under par round of 69! Well done Kenny! As a reminder for those who may not be aware, Kenny is still just 11 years old. 

 

In the Red Tee divisions, Spencer Young took the honours in the 18 hole group with a round of 93, closely followed by Ryan Clements on 97. Kian Mooney led the way in the 9 hole group with a fine round of 47. Matthew Ingelman was second on retrogression over Benjamin Betschart on 56.
