Abergele's Owen Warwick made the most of home advantage to win the U14 age group at the fourth Ping Welsh Junior Tour event of the season.
He won with a fine score of 41 stableford points, so guaranteeing himself a place in the end of season Tour Final.
Charlie McKinney, also from Abergele, was the runner up with 40 points, edging Caernarfon’s Osian Jones into third place on a countback.
Nia Cameron-Smith from Padeswood & Buckley was the leading girl player, whilst junior tour regular Josh Chamberlain continued his good form with a sixth place finish to strengthen his position at the top of the Order of Merit table.
Ethan Langley from Rhondda scored 62 points to win the under 12s age group. Josh Westcott made the long trip from Ashburnham worthwhile by finishing 2nd with a score of 59, with Bargoed’s Ryan Williams in third, also with 59 points.
The U12s Order of Merit is wide open with Westcott and Williams tying at the top and Ethan Langley just a couple of points behind. All three players are due to play in the final event of the season at Lakeside Garthmyl so an exciting finish is in prospect.
The best scoring of the day was to be found in the U10s with Aaron Mohun from Wrexham and William Pontin from Rhondda both scoring an exceptional 64 points.
By virtue of a better score over the last 6 holes, Aaron took the honours on this occasion with Clays’ Charlie Boys in third with 60 points. William’s outstanding form this season has guaranteed him top place in the U10s Order of Merit Table.
Reuben Baker from Llandrindod Wells continues to lead the way in the U8s category, recording his second win of the season.
Hawarden’s Isaiah Flewitt enjoyed a successful Tour debut with 50 points and second place ahead of Caernarfon’s Jac Green. Reuben takes a strong Order of Merit points lead into the final event of the season.
Ashton Bradbury, chairman of the Golf Union of Wales Championships Committee, said, “We have had a tremendous day at Abergele and our thanks go to the club for hosting the event.
“The Ping Welsh Junior Tour is designed to give young players a taste of competitive but fun golf and we are delighted that so many players and their families have chosen to support the events.
“We very much look forward to the next event at Lakeside Garthmyl Golf Club and then, in the autumn, the Tour Final at the St Pierre Marriot Hotel and Country Club.”
