Jnr golfers shine at Open

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE small yet tena­cious group of Moss­man Golf Club Ju­nior Golfers again made their pres­ence felt in the FNQ golf­ing re­gion at the Gor­don­vale Ju­nior Golf Open on Septem­ber 25.

The ju­niors fea­tured heav­ily in the tour­na­ment awards and pre­sen­ta­tions demon­strat­ing that they are a dom­i­nant force on the FNQ ju­nior golf cir­cuit.

In the nine-hole novice sec­tion, Nathan Deu­ble shot a handy score of 57 and re­ceived the Net Run­ner-Up Tro­phy.

A large field con­tested the girls’ and boys’ nine-hole mod­i­fied event where ju­nior golfers hit from the 200m and 150m mark­ings.

Jaiden Kearns from the Moss­man club was the out­right gross score boys’ win­ner strik­ing an im­pres­sive score of 47 with pint-sized Couper Smith, also from the Moss­man Club shoot­ing an im­pres­sive score of 52 to fin­ish re­ceiv­ing the net run­ner-up award.

The Moss­man girls were not to be out­done with Jas­mine Hill, also re­ceiv­ing the net run­ner-up award and se­cur­ing a near­est-tothe-pin prize for an out­stand­ing shot on the 12th hole.

All Moss­man ju­nior golfers played ad­mirably on the day, with a num­ber of golfers trav­el­ling and com­pet­ing away for the first time.

All com­peted ex­tremely well and were in­line for prizes on the day.
