Nor­ris leads from start to fin­ish

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

MAN­DURAH ju­nior golfer Kathryn Nor­ris (16) won her sec­ond girls’ Drum­mond Golf Ju­nior Cham­pi­onship of WA at Cottes­loe Golf Club on Novem­ber 19.

Golf WA’s Matt Somer­ford said Nor­ris birdied the four­par first hole, be­fore go­ing on to be three-un­der for the first nine holes at the coastal course.

“The Man­durah club mem­ber did not blot her card un­til the par-five 14th hole and even then she quickly picked up the dropped shot two holes later to take lunch in a com­mand­ing po­si­tion six shots clear of 16-year-olds Kirsten Rudge­ley, from Wan­neroo Golf Club, and Brooke Price, from The Vines,” Mr Somer­ford said.

Nor­ris’s 75 shots was only bet­tered by Rudge­ley, and Yeah-jin Lee (15) from Royal Perth Golf Club, in the af­ter­noon but their rounds of 74 were not enough to bridge the gap Nor­ris ear­lier es­tab­lished.

Nor­ris’s vic­tory gets her a place on the LPGA Tour.

The boys’ tro­phy was taken by Josh Greer (16), from Joon­dalup Golf Club, who won the ti­tle two years ago. Greer scored a three-un­der par score of 69 in the morn­ing, but by the end of the day was five shots ahead of 2016 cham­pion Kirsten Rudge­ley.

Greer reached the final of the Scot­tish Boys’ Am­a­teur Cham­pi­onship in July and got his sec­ond WA ti­tle with a 35foot putt on the last hole to fin­ish four-un­der at Cot­tel­soe.

The Girls Nett com­pe­ti­tion for un­der-18s was won by Hay­ley Carter (14), fol­lowed by Ruby Fry (12), while the Boys Nett cham­pion for un­der-18s was won by Adam Brady (15) fol­lowed by Jake An­der­son (16) from Royal Fre­man­tle Golf Club. Girls Sub-Ju­nior cham­pi­onship (un­der-15) was won by Ge­or­gia Gar­ner-Dart (14) and the Boys Sub-Ju­nior cham­pion was Gareth Steyn (14).

Girls Sub-Ju­nior Nett cham­pion un­der-15s was Mai Julius (14) from Melville Glades Golf Club and the Boys Sub-Ju­nior Nett cham­pion was Gary Abra­ham (12).
