Thirty two Manawatu Wanganui Juniors travelled to Masterton yesterday to compete in the annual Masterton Junior Open golf tournament. Manawatu Wanganui Golf arranged a Bus from Palmerston North to transport players to the event. Players from Wanganui, Levin, Taihape, Foxton, Feilding, Manawatu & Palmerston North were represented.
Conditions were sunny & hot like it is most years for this event.
The event has different divisions including U19, U15 and novice 9 hole. Feilding's Liam Finlayson won the Boys U19 with a score of 71, and Palmerston North's Bradley McSherry won the U15 with an 83. Young Feilding player Ryan Rooney had a superb net 62 to be the best net score of the day. Other players within the 9 hole novice group had personal best scores which was fantastic to see.
Well done to all the players that competed. Excellent to see some really keen and enthusiastic young golfers, as well as some very good up and coming talent.
