 Great golf from top juniors at the Joanne Morley Junior Challenge

SOME of the region’s top juniors from the ages of nine to 16 enjoyed playing the tenth Joanne Morley Junior Challenge on a Sale course in excellent condition. And a string of good scores reflected the quality of the field of 40 who brought great credit to themselves and their clubs with their faultless conduct and sporting spirit both on an off the course.

With Solheim Cup vice captain Joanne on duty in a special competition at Celtic Manor, the venue for the 2010 Ryder Cup, young Lancashire and England star Matt Nixon of Ashton-under-Lyne, himself an outstanding junior at top level for several years where winning the British Boys championship was one of his many highlights, stepped into the breach to give an inspiring speech to the players and then award the prizes.

But Joanne will be playing a special challenge match against the top finishers later in the year.  Among the sponsors providing prizes were Joanne, Sport4Life, the Golf Foundation, Golftorium, De Vere Wychwood Park and Marriott Worsley Park.

In a tight finish Didsbury Golf Club’s young star 12 handicapper Will Hartley emerged as the overall winner and took the coveted trophy back to his home club for the first time with a top round of 38 points. He also won rounds for four at De Vere Wychwood Park and Marriott Worsley Park. Next in just a point off the pace was Disley’s Robert Potter with the four-handicapper carding a fine 37 points to win a golf stand bag donated by Sport4Life. As the top boy next to the champion Robert will be invited to play with Will Hartley and the top girl with Joanne Morley.
