We are grateful to all the Junior Team organisers for giving their time to arranging for their Players’ attendance and participation in the SJTC event at Stirling. There were 120 competitors representing 20 Teams and Areas/Counties from across Scotland, in the recent 5th playing of the Championship. 24 Girls competed, the highest number ever.
Our thanks go to all at Stirling Golf Club for hosting this event. Their welcome, hospitality and assistance, was truly fantastic, and the names of all concerned were mentioned at the prize giving. And thanks are also due to Scottish Golf for supporting this event.
Excellent assistance in setting up this complex event was received from Jenny Potter at Golf Genius. The smooth running of the day could not have happened without the assistance of local Starter Robbie Roy, Assistant Directors Sue Warren and Gareth Jack, and local Junior Convenors Fiona Kelly and Angela Dickson. Our thanks are due also to our Patron, Catriona Matthew, to friends at the R&A for donating prizes, and to some American friends who obtained prizes for the event from the US Masters and from the US Womens Open.
Please see attached list of winners and prizes. The scores can be seen on the Golf Genius App using the access code QXFSEQ. No other info is required to access it. All prizes have now been awarded, some by post to the winners.
Congratulations to the Team from Swanston (photo attached) who, led by David Morrans their Junior Convenor, (photo attached) in their first appearance in the Competition, won the trophy, donated by Ian Howarth, with the best 5 out of 6 points total of 186, narrowly beating Drumpellier and Dumbartonshire on 184 and 183 points respectively. The 3 all-Girls Teams present representing the East or West of Scotland were led by the West of Scotland Girls (Blue) team with 182 points. They were awarded US Masters visors signed by Catriona Matthew, one of our Patrons.
The best individual net scores were 51 points by Olivia Thompson of East Girls, and 48 points by Owen Hayward of Swanston. The best gross points scores were 37 by Jamie Gibb of Aboyne, and 29 by Ava Graham of West Girls.
We look forward to seeing you, or other Teams from your Leagues, at the 2023 event which will be held at Elderslie Golf Club on Sunday September 24th.
