Ricky Kato (Bonnie Doon GC) took out the boys championship after displaying some great golf this week with 70, 68, 68, 69 for a total of 275 and 11 under par. 16 year old, Cameron Davis (Roseville GC) may not have taken out the championship but he played some impressive golf today, shooting 65 (-6) and finished the tournament with 3 under and managed to win the boys 16 years scratch . Mitchell Norbis (Windsor GC) won the boys 15 years scratch with 8 over for the tournament.

The final round started with both the boys and girls overall leaders separated by only 1 shot, and it wasn’t until late on the back 9 that a winner was decided.

Kevin Yuan (Bankstown) fired a fantastic final round of -2 (70) to break away from 54 hole leader Tony Jung (Strathfield), and ended up winning by 5 shots.

Shelly Shin (Concord) was also able to slowly wear down overnight leader Celina Yuan (Bankstown) and managed to open up a 4 shot lead, but Celina kept fighting, and pushed Shelley all the way to the wire. Shelley hung on in the end, to win by 2 shots. The girls Nett winner was Belinda Ji (Rosnay – HCP 30) with an incredible -22.

In the boys 12 and under, Josh Armstrong (Golf Creek) played consistent golf over 4 days to run away with the victory. Justin Kim (Muirfield) and Adam Nelson (Castle Hill) finished in 2ndand 3rd.
Jacob Schouw (Bayview – HCP 16) finished as the Nett Champion.

There was some consolation for Tony Jung, after narrowly missing out on the overall title, with a commanding win in the boys 13 years. The minor places were closely fought out, with Jason Hong and Isaac Noh completing the Strathfield trifecta in the boys 13 years. The Nett champion in the 13 years was Brian Au (Woolooware – HCP 28) finishing on -11 for the week.
