The future looks bright for Yorkshire after four players collected silverware at the North of England under 14 and under 12 Junior Strokeplay Championships at South Moor in Durham.
The first day was washed out and conditions were very challenging when golf resumed on Yorkshire Day! Doncaster’s Josh Berry added to his haul of trophies in successfully defending his title with rounds of 74 and 69 to edge out Louis Vallis from Thorndon Park GC, Essex by a shot. Huddersfield’s Dylan Shaw Radfors tied with Vallis with rounds of 73 and 71 but lost the runner-up spot in a card play-off.
And three girls made it a memorable day for Yorkshire with a clean sweep in the Girls event.
Fulford’s Alex Bonfield (4) came from one shot behind the leaders and a second successive 78 saw her win the gross event by four shots and with it a place in the North of England under 16 finals.
Next, Charlotte Colley, from Phoenix GC, took the nett prize with an 8 under par 138 and the success continued in the under 12 division with Lucia Maturi (Lindrick GC) finishing runner up in the gross but winning the nett prize with a score of 152.
