Sunday and Monday of the long weekend saw Camden and Campbelltown Golf Clubs host the biggest of the JNJ Golf events. Over 200 players, including some of the best junior in NSW participated. We had the older players (14, 15, 16 plus) on the Sunday. One player, Harrison Crowe from St Michaels, had played in our Saturday competition as a warm up for Sunday, scoring a 6 under par scratch score in winning our stableford event. He went on to shoot 5 under par 66 in a standout performance on the Sunday, to lead the over 16's by 4 strokes from Tom Heaton, The Australian, and Cameron Rios-Ceballos, Stonecutters Ridge. Locals, Josh Battle (78) and Brandon Vella (81) were well behind the leader after day one. Harrison went on to shoot 1under par at Campbelltown and win this division by 2 strokes from Adam Thorp from Federal, who shot 5 under at Campbelltown. Impressive golf indeed!
Geordie Taylor had a good Nett score of 71, to be 3 strokes behind the leaders after day one, then followed this up with a similar round at Campbelltown to finish equal 4th overall.
Jack McDonald, Links Cove, shot 1 under (70) to lead the 14 and 15 year's event, with local Nicholas Zelesco our best with 83. Nicholas went on to claim a 10th place in the Nett event over the two days.
On day one, Camden player Noah Graham scored well at Campbelltown and followed this with a good round at home on Monday to finish 13th scratch, and 11th Nett in the under 11 years age group.
The girls divisions of the Jack Newton event were equally competitive, with some outstanding individual performances. Unfortunately, there were no junior girls from Camden who participated, although Stu Meani has a few youngsters getting ready on a Sunday morning for future events.
