St Mellion Claim Junior Champion Club Win

Off to Woodhall Spa - St Mellion Juniors (L to R) Oban Webber, Harry Lusher and Jacob Bullock

Ten club teams took part in yesterday's England Golf Junior Champion Club Qualifier at Carlyon Bay GC and it was the St Mellion team of Jacob Bullock, Harry Lusher and Oban Webber who took top honours and gave them the opportunity to represent Cornwall at the finals in Lincolnshire in August.

With the morning's heavy rain clearing, the afternoon was dry and predominantly bright and Bullock took advantage racing to top individual honours  with an impressive 42 points. Backing him up very nicely was St Mellion Junior Captain Lusher who returned 35 points to give the team a 77 point total in the best two from three scores format.

St Mellion will now travel to the Headquarters of England Golf at Woodhall Spa to compete over two days against the county winners from across the country.

Launceston Juniors (Oliver Uglow, Ryan Tozer & James Tucknott) can consider themselves very unlucky as they too scored 77 only to lose out on countback. Uglow, the third best individual scorer on the day, topped the Launceston tally with 40 points to which Tozer added 37.

The Falmouth team of Isabelle Wakeling, Rory Julian and Henry Cooper, who were clubhouse leaders for a long time eventually finished third on 74 points as both Launceston and St Mellion who were playing together at the back of the field came in above them.

Kian Williams

Second best individual score on the day came from the host club's Kian Williams who compiled a 1 under par back 9 of 36 in his 40 point total.

In the 4th individual spot was West Cornwall's Yves Armstrong-Donaldson (37)

In 5th spot matching 37 points was Falmouth's Rory Julian.

As a footnote parents of the juniors were requested to remain off the course 'outside of the ropes' as it were. Safety is and was a major consideration and with the course marshalled by volunteers this was catered for. Other members and visitors playing  the course and a match taking place were another. The request was 'applauded' by a number of the juniors some of whom actually approached the organiser with concerns having witnessed the request made sadly not being complied with. The juniors all behaved very well. Of course we understand some parents may wish to witness their children playing, but the impact their presence can have on the children and others who are unaccompanied can be detrimental. We expect those who enter competitions, can play on their own without any form of outside interference or influence.

We will continue to review our Spectator Policy to ensure it is fit for purpose.
