2014 Kenilworth Junior Masters - Results

Forty-eight boys and girls aged thirteen or under, gathered at Kenilworth Golf Club on Wednesday 16th April 2014 for the sixth playing of the Kenilworth Junior Masters, supported by the Golf Society of Great Britain.   With the course in great condition and, for the first time in six years, clear blue skies and sunshine welcoming the competitors it was always likely to be a day when the scoring was good.

The competition for the John Butler Trophy, awarded to the lowest gross score, is always very fierce but this year there was an extra incentive to play well with the boy and girl with the lowest gross score receiving an invitation to take part in the exclusive Ian Poulter Junior Invitational at Woburn GC in July.  The competitors didn't disappoint! Standing on the 18th tee, one of our regular competitors, Dominic Clemons from Gog Magog GC was tied with newcomer, Luke Bartram, from Rossendale GC at 3 over par. Dominic played first and pulled his tee shot slightly to finish pin high but a few yards off the green.  An up an down for par looked very possible from the tee.  Next up was Luke Bartram, playing off a handicap of 8, who had been striking the ball superbly all day.  Luke's tee shot was slightly thin but arrow straight and, with a bit of help from the top of the bunker acting as a brake, finished about 5 or 6 foot from the hole.  A tie was still a real possibility until Dominic arrived at his ball to find his stance badly impeded by a tree.  A bogey four followed leaving Luke with two putts to take the title.  In fact, he didn't need two putts as his birdie putt found the middle of the hole for an excellent gross score of 73.  Dominic, playing off a handicap of 5, was two behind with a gross 75. Eddie Turner-Bennett, another first time competitor playing off 6, took third place with a gross score of 77.

In the handicap section, Kenilworth GC's own George Halstead, aged 9, obliterated the field with a stableford score of 50 points!  Even more remarkable was the fact that his handicap was restricted for this event to 44 rather than his actual handicap of 50 - probably just as well! In second place, with a score that would normally have seen him win the best nett, was Rhys Wallace from Handsworth GC playing off a handicap of 17 and scoring 44 points.  Third place went to James Ricketts from Walsall GC who tied with Kenilworth GC's Chanon James on 40 points but won by virtue of a better back nine. 

The trophy for the best girl went to another regular visitor to Kenilworth GC, Ffion Tynan from Minchinhampton GC, playing off a handicap of 8 and aged just 11, who produced a gross score of 85 which was good enough to finish 8th overall on the day.  Unfortunately, Ffion will not not be able to take up her invitation to the Ian Poulter Invitational as she will be playing in the Callaway World Junior Championships at Pinehurst GC at the time.

In the age group categories the U14 prize went to Katie Leck from Forest Hills GC with 38 points.  Kirtus Grimmet from Rugby GC won the U12 group also with 38 points.  Kenilworth GC's own Chanon James, having lost 3rd nett on a count back, was victorious in the U10's section.

2013 Kenilworth Junior Masters - Results

Forty-eight boys and girls aged thirteen or under, gathered at Kenilworth Golf Club on Thursday 4th April 2013 for the fifth playing of the Kenilworth Junior Masters, supported by the Golf Society of Great Britain.   The competitors had to endure bitterly cold conditions with snow falling during the early part of their rounds and then faced a strong easterly wind once the snow had stopped.  In truth, it was a day when many seasoned golfers might have chosen the warmth of the clubhouse rather than venturing out on to the course!  The scoring in this event, particularly, in the handicap section, is usually astonishingly good but most would have predicted that few, if any, would beat par on such a cold day and with little run on the ball following such a harsh winter. However, as the early groups completed their rounds and returned to the clubhouse with their scorecards it quickly became evident that the scores were not following the predicted script and a surprising number of players had conquered the weather and the course to return sub-par rounds!

As ever, the competition for the John Butler Trophy, awarded to the lowest gross score, was very closely contested.  It was James Bowen from Olton Golf Club who emerged victorious narrowly edging out Rugby Golf Club's Tom Cleaton with a score of 80 to win by just one shot.  In third place was Luke Greene from Newbold Comyn Golf Club who finished four shots behind the leader.

In the handicap section, Harry Lord, aged 11, from Rossendale Golf Club took the honours with an excellent score of 41 stableford points to finish just one shot clear of a trio of players including Rocco Luca from Coventry Golf Club, Jack Drury from Stratford-upon-Avon Golf Club  and Kenilworth’s own Chanon James, aged just 8 years old and playing off a restricted handicap on the day.  On countback, second place was awarded to Rocco Luca with Jack Drury coming third and taking the last of the trophies. The trophy for the best girl went to Megan Evans from Gaudet Luce Golf Club who produced a gross score of 94, just two shots over her handicap. 

Although not featuring in the prizes, it will be a day that Ross Perry, a junior member at Kenilworth Golf Club, will remember for the rest of his life after recording his first ever hole-in-one on the 155 yard 18th hole.  Well done Ross! 

After the competition, the participants enjoyed a clinic which was presented by Andy Sullivan, a European Tour player, from Nuneaton Golf Club who currently lies in 41st place on the Race to Dubai.  Andy also presented the prizes and trophies to the winners.

European Tour player to support to Kenilworth Junior Masters

European Tour player Andy Sullivan has kindly agreed to lend his support to the Kenilworth Junior Masters by giving a short game clinic to the youngsters taking part in this year's Kenilworth Junior Masters before handing out the prizes to the winners.  Andy, a keen supporter of junior golf, has enjoyed a fantastic start to his year on the European Tour with three top ten finishes so far and currently occupies 41st place in the Race to Dubai.  

Andy, from Nuneaton GC, is no stranger to the course at Kenilworth being a multiple winner of the Kenilworth Classic and, most notably, was crowned county champion when he won the Warwickshire Open at Kenilworth GC in 2010 with rounds of 64 (a new course record) and 67 for a 36 hole total of 11 under par.

The Kenilworth Junior Masters takes place on Thursday 4th April 2013.

Kenilworth Junior Open 2012 Results

A strong field of fifty seven juniors took part in this year's Kenilworth Junior Open.  Although the course was playing its full length following the exceptionally wet weather the scoring, particularly from the players with lower handicaps, was impressive.

The best score of the day came from Sam GIll (The Warwickshire) who birdied the final two holes to finish with a gross 73.  Dhiren Patel (Shirley) was just one shot off the pace having scored 74 to secure second place with Louie Pett (The Warwickshire) taking third place on countback from Curtis Beeson (Atherstone) after they both finished with 75's.

The Dick McMillan Trophy is awarded to the player with the best nett score. Both Alex Summers (The Warwickshire) and Rhys Hopkins (Fulford Heath) completed their rounds with nett scores of 68.  However, Alex Summers, playing off a handicap of 12, was the overall winner courtesy of a better back nine.  Rhys Wallace (Fulford Heath) finished in third place having recorded a nett 69.

The winner of the Jack Savage Trophy, which is awarded to the best placed Kenilworth, was Will Slater who, playing in his first junior open, returned a score of 70 off a handicap of 26.

Miilie Birch (Kings Norton) won the Kenilworth Open Trophy for the best nett score by a girl having returned a nett 72 whilst the girl's best gross prize was won by Katrina Gani (Shirley) with her round of 82.
